An MLA candidate usually works hard to get ticket from one seat. But, here is one politician who is being asked by the people to contest from two places. Both the constituencies want him to represent them. So , there is a competition going on between the two constituencies for this leader.

The leader is none other than Kasu Mahesh, son of Congress strongman and former minister Kasu Venkata Krishna Reddy. When Kasu Mahesh had joined the YSRCP after 2014 elections, YS Jagan has appointed him coordinator for Gurajala assembly constituency as his constituency of Narasaraopet is being represented by YSRCP MLA Gopireddy. Accordingly, for the last three years, he has been working hard to build a base for himself in the constituency. So, there is a huge support base for him in Gurajala. He has also worked hard to build public opinion against TDP MLA Yarapatineni Srinivasa Rao. But, this time around, Kodela Sivaprasad, arch political rival of Kasu family, is planning to bring his son into politics and he wants him to contest from Narsaraopet. So, the YSRCP workers of Narasaraopet feel that present MLA Gopireddy may not be able to fight him effectively. They want Kasu Mahesh to contest from Narsaraopet and argue that he alone can defeat Kodela family in the constituency.

With both Gurajala and Narsaraopet wanting him, Kasu Mahesh has a difficult choice to make.  Narsaraopet or Gurajala??
