YSR Congress Party chief YS Jagan Mohan Reddy is heading for a landslide victory in the Andhra Pradesh assembly elections and a spectacular performance in the Lok Sabha elections, leads from Andhra Pradesh indicate.
Of the 175 assembly seats in the state, he is ahead in over 150, compared to the 24 of the ruling Telugu Desam Party. The majority mark in the assembly stands at 88. He is also leading in 19 of the state’s 25 Lok Sabha.
For Chandrababu Naidu, who walked out of the NDA after last year’s budget, the outlook could be grim. It was Jaganmohan Reddy’s push for the statehood issue that’s said to be at the bottom of Chandrababu Naidu’s move to part company with the BJP and join the opposition camp.
Most of Chandrababu Naidu’s ministers, including his son Lokesh are trailing behind. In almost all districts Jagan Mohan Reddy party’s performance is excellent.
