Kapu community voters are more in number in three Assembly segments like Pedana, Avanigadda and Machilipatnam in Krishna district. Obviously, political parties field their candidates from Kapu community. TDP announced Kollu Ravindra (BC), Kagitha Venkata Krishna Prasad (BC) and Buddha Prasad (Kapu) as its candidate. Both YSRCP and Jena Sena have announced its candidates to Kapu Community in all three segments.
Reportedly, Pawan Kalyan has plan to field his brother Nagababu in Machilipatnam Parliament segment because of Kapu strength later he shifted his brother to Narsapuram Parliament. Jena Sena field Ankem Lakshmi Srinivas from Machilipatnam, Bandi Rama Krishna from Pedana and Muttemsetty Krishna Rao from Avanigadda segments. Bandi Rama Krishna is NRI and got Jena Sena Ticket and reportedly he spend lavishly in campaigning. As per buzz, Bandi will show his money strength next two days. YSRCP candidate Perni Nani is fear of Bandi strength and guessing that 90% Kapu Community voters towards Jena Sena. Nani has mostly depend on YSRCP MP Balashourie for finance.
Jena Sena is confident on Pedana Segment in Krishna district. Ankem Lakshmi Srinivas is rushed towards with youth force. Expected Jogi Ramesh would occupy third slot in Pedana. Jogi Ramesh who lost to Devineni Uma in Mylavaram in 2014 and shifted to Pedana. He hardly convince Uppala who was already YSRCP incharge in Pedana. Fight is between TDP and Jena Sena in Pedana and Machilipatnam. TDP leaders expect BC voters would bail out in Pedana and Machilipatnam. In Avanigadda, triangular fight is inevitable among three parties.
