Andhra Pradesh: During his campaign at Nandyal, Yuvajana Shramika Rythu Congress Party (YSRCP) leader Jagan Reddy spewed an absolute shocker when he said people like Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu should be shot in public.
Addressing a crowd in Nandyal town, ahead of the by-elections, Jagan said, "A person like Chandrababu Naidu should be shot in public for his double speak and unending deeds of corruption."
Nandyal is a constituency in the state's Rayalaseema area that has been witnessing a political void ever since the death of its sitting MLA Bhuma Nagi Reddy from a heart attack on March 12 this year.
While TDP has named Bhuma Brahmananda Reddy as its candidate, the YSRCP has named Silpa Mohan Reddy as its nominee. Other parties, including the Congress, are also planning to field candidates.
The Election Commission announced that the election will be held on August 23.
While the last date of nomination is August 5.
The inspection of nomination will be done on August 7 and last date of withdrawal of candidates is August 9.
The counting of votes will be held on August 28.
