For the last 3 decades, the YS family has been boasting of the luxury of having the Kadapa Lok Sabha segment as its bastion. Since YSR’s first win here in 1989, the YS family has been winning every election here.

Cut to 2024, the Kadapa parliament segment unexpectedly saw two YS family individuals in contention and they are Congress president Sharmila and YCP’s Avinash Reddy.

Now that the polling is done, the local talk in Kadapa is that heavy cross-voting has happened in Kadapa as the core YSR voter group has also substantially sided with Sharmila this time.

While nurturing Jagan’s YCP in the MLA polls, the Kadapa voters intentionally backed Sharmila in the MP polls, according to the ground-level reports from Kadapa.

The Viveka murder case, and Sharmila being the direct descendant of YSR appear to have worked in favor of the new AP Congress chief. The projected pattern here is that the YS voter base in Kadapa followed the formula of polling one vote to Jagan and the other vote to Sharmila.

If this cross voting theory has actually happened in the Kadapa parliamentary segment then a comfortable win looks extremely likely for Sharmila here.
