Soon after, he and his wife began crisscrossing the constituency like there's no tomorrow. What more, he got senior leaders from the district like Jana Reddy and Komatireddy Venkat Reddy to join hands with him. These two leaders are now actively working for Padmavathi's victory. In another major victory, he also convinced his arch-rival and competitor Revanth Reddy to campaign for his wife. Revanth is now currently organising padayatra in Huzurnagar constituency to drum up support for Padmavathi. This again is being seen as a big success for Uttam Kumar Reddy.
Uttam Kumar Reddy's popularity and campaign style is giving jitters to the TRS, which thought the bypoll would be a walkover. The TRS is now huffing and puffing in its campaign and has deployed over 150 key leaders for Huzurnagar. Thus, Uttam Reddy is proving to be a tougher nut to crack.
