During the Congress rule, the politics in Nellore were centred around Anam Vivekananda Reddy and Anam Ramanarayana Reddy. After the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh, Anam brothers had joined the TDP. Former Chief Minister YS Rajasekhara Reddy used Vivekananda Reddy to target his opponents in the Congress and opposition parties in Nellore district. But, the TDP Ministers and leaders of the district are against Anam brothers becoming prominent in the party despite YSRCP is looking stronger than the TDP. Vivekananda Reddy’ followers say that the TDP will gain upper hand over YSRCP in Nellore if the TDP high command gives him a chance.
