While Chandrababu Naidu's TDP has named Bhuma Brahmananda Reddy as its candidate, the YSR Congress has named Silpa Mohan Reddy as its nominee. Both the ruling TDP and main opposition party YSR Congress have made the by-elections a prestige issue, as the by-poll will be seen as a referendum on three years of the Andhra chief minister's rule.
Varla Ramaiah, TDP leader, condemned his statement and said Jaganmohan Reddy has gone frustrated. While verbal spats in public between political opponents turns ugly often, this inciting of violence by Jagan Reddy is beyond reasonable rhetoric, and needs to be condemned.
While addressing a poll campaign in Nandyal of Kurnool district, Reddy alleged Naidu for poaching his MLAs who won the polls on the ticket of his party and later switched their loyalties to Naidu.
"The entire Naidu cabinet, including Naidu and his son too, are on the roads of Nandyal and it is upto you to mete out justice, " Mr Reddy said. The Nandyal Assembly constituency will hold by-elections on 23 August after TDP MLA Bhuma Nagi Reddy's death left the seat vacant.

Nandyal is considered a YSR Congress stronghold. He back-stabbed NT Rama Rao and then started using his photo in every election.
"This is not the way a leader who runs a party should speak". Naidu also directed the leaders to go to door to door and ask votes. He called for "corrupt people like Chandrababu Naidu" to be shot. Mr Reddy points out that Mr Naidu has made several lavish promises to Nandyal, something he has not done even a little for his native Kuppam constituency, "only with the intention of winning here by hook or crook". "However, he did not say that he himself will shoot or kill Naidu".
He said that Chandrababu notices farmers and minorities only at the time of elections.
