Two doctors to fight it out in A.P's Kondepi segment
Ongole (AP), March 29 :- (H.S.) Kondepi, an SC reserved constituency has drawn the attention of entire Prakasam district as the Telugu desam and YSR Congress candidates are doctors. Sitting Telugu desam MLA Dr. Sila Bala Veeranjaneya Swamy is seeking reelection from Kondepi segment. He is pitted against Dr. Madasi Venkaiah of YSR Congress. Dr Swamy and Dr Venkaiah quit their medical officer posts and entered politics. Incidentally, both the candidates hail from agricultural families. Kondepi constituency was in general category seat up to 2009 and the fight was between tobacco and granite export tycoons. After the delimitation of constituencies, Kondepi constituency was reserved for SCs. Even if it is reserved for SCs, the show is run by political bigwigs behind the scene. Both Congress and Telugudesam parties won the Assembly seat thrice. Dr. Swamy resigned as Kondepi PHC Medical Officer in 2008 and contested the 2009 elections on Telugudesam party ticket. He was defeated by G.V Seshu of Congress. He again contested on Telugudesam ticket from Kondepi in the 2014 elections and won against Jupudi Prabhakara Rao of YSR Congress. He is in the electoral fray from Kondepi constituency for the third time. M.Someswara Rao, \
