Until recently, Naveen Nischal was the YCP in-charge of Hindupur Constituency. Abdul Ghani was appointed in his place after his defection into YCP. This gave an impression that he will be the YCP Candidate for next elections. However, Abdul Ghani has withdrawn from race just before the elections citing health issues.
As per the latest update, Former Police officer Iqbal Ahmed was finalised as YCP Candidate for Hindupur Constituency. Jagan had even managed to ensure Iqbal Ahmed and Naveen Nischal reach a compromise. These two leaders will be working together for the victory of YCP in Hindupur.
