The bypolls were necessitated as Jagan and his mother Vijayalakshmi quit as MP and MLA from Kadapa Lok Sabha and Pulivendula Assembly segments, respectively after differences cropped up between the YSR family and Congress high command.

Andhra Pradesh Health Minister D L Ravindra Reddy is the ruling Congress candidate for Kadapa Lok Sabha seat while Agriculture Minister Y S Vivekananda Reddy, who is the brother of former Chief Minister Y S Rajashekara Reddy, will contest from Pulivendula Assembly segment.
