Bypolls to three assembly seats one each in Andhra Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh and Nagaland would also be held on the same day. The assembly seats include Pulivendula, held by Jagan's mother, Vijayalaxmi, who had also resigned as MLA after her son revolted against the party and decided to float his new party.
