The updated results show that Jagan is enjoying a lead of more than 1,23,000 votes in the Kadapa Lok Sabha seat. Even before the first vote was cast, there were positive vibes surrounding Jagan and support had been coming in from all quarters. The others in the three way fight besides Jagan, Cong candidate DL Ravindra Reddy and the TDP candidate MV Mysura Reddy are no way in the contest.
The other star attraction from the YSR camp is Jagan's mother Vijayalaxmi, who was contesting from the Pulivendula constituency against YSR's brother YS Vivekananda Reddy. Latest updates state that she is leading by a whopping 36,000 votes.
With Jagan's performance in the elections more of a personal victory and out there to prove a point against the Congress High Command, he had mentioned that the Cong was instrumental in creating a rift among family members, especially among the YSR family.
The Kadapa by-poll results will be the moment of reckoning for Jagan and his YSR party and to prove how much clout he enjoys over Kadapa and eventually to the larger Andhra Pradesh populace.
