YSR Congress Party (YSRCP) on Sunday announced candidates for the remaining 17 Lok Sabha seats and all 175 Assembly seats in Andhra Pradesh.

Party President Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy released the second and final list of candidates after paying tribute to his father and former Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy at his grave at Idupulapaya in Kadapa district.

YSRCP had announced candidates for nine Lok Sabha seats late on Saturday.
