Pitapuram assembly segment in East Godavari has a strong Kapu population. This is one of the probable seats for Janasena President Pawan Kalyan to contest.
Jagan Mohan Reddy shifted his focus on to this seat to defeat Pawan Kalyan at any cost. Pendem Dorababu is the sitting MLA from YSR Congress here.
I-PAC surveys say his performance is not up to the mark and Jagan is unlikely to give him a ticket. Kakinada MP Vanga Geetha may be shifted to this constituency.
Vanga Geetha won from Pitapuram on the Praja Rajyam ticket in the 2009 elections.
Kapu Strongman Mudragada Padmanabham may get this ticket if he officially joins YSR Congress.
Former MLA SVSN Varma is also ready to join YSR Congress from TDP if Jagan promises a ticket.
Jagan can not even stand the mention of Pawan Kalyan and will go all out to defeat him once again.
Pitapuram and Bhimavaram are the probable seats for the Janasenani in 2024. The advantage with Bhimavaram is there are no big names.
