Hyderabad, May 7 IBNS | 6 months ago

As Seemandhra region, which is going to be the resized and truncated Andhra Pradesh from next month with the creation of Telangana, voted on Wednesday to elect for the parliament and the state assembly, YSR Congress Party (YSRCP) chief Jaganmohan Reddy said he would sweep the polls.


"... will make a clean sweep," said Reddy speaking to media as Seemandhra region witnessed 22 percent polling till 11 am.

The region now has 25 parliamentary seats while the state new assembly will have 175 lawmakers for which polling is being held Wednesday.

Reddy's YSR Congress is pitted against Chandrababu Naidu's Telugu Desam Party (TDP). TDP has forged an alliance with the BJP.

Reddy, who fought the Congress and the Gandhi family and was in jail over corruption charges, is hoping to cash in on the legacy of his father YSR who died in a helicopter crash in 2009.

Fortyone-year-old Reddy's wife Bharti and sister YS Sharmila were seen in queue for voting while he himself and his mother Y S Vijayamma, who is the party's honorary president, voted in Pulivendula in native Kadapa district.
