The bypolls for the 18 assembly seats and one Lok Sabha seat on June 12 will see the Congress roll out many biggies for the campaign like Ghulam Nabi Azad and superstar turned politician Chiranjeevi campaigning for the Congress along with CM Kiran Kumar Reddy.
Sharmila's entry into the campaign fray has been largely successful since she has emerged as the surprise element also managing to pull crowds. Her speech and style is being compared to her late father YS Rajasekhar Reddy.
While Jagan's mother and sister are busy with the poll campaign, his wife YS Bharathi Reddy is deeply involved in the day to day activities of running Jagan's vast business empire. Sakshi TV and newspaper as well Bharathi Cements falls under the control of Bharathi. The cement company has been named after her.
Bharathi has been quoted as saying earlier, "Actually, I have always been part of the businesses. For the past one-and-a-half years, since he (Jagan Mohan Reddy) had no time, I have been playing a bigger role in business."
