Andhra: TDP trounces YSR Congress by almost 28000 votes in Nandyal bypoll

Andhra: TDP trounces YSR Congress by almost 28000 votes in Nandyal bypoll

Bhuma Brahmananda Reddy had earlier claimed that Nandyal is his and now his dream has come true.

Chandrababu Naidu on Monday said that the TDP's victory in the Nandyal Assembly by-election by a huge majority is a mandate for development.

The ruling party candidate Bhuma Brahmananda Reddy secured a total 97,076 votes, while the opposition YSR Congress candidate Silpa Mohan Reddy took 69,610 votes. The Congress candidate got just 1,382 votes. In anticipation of the general elections in 2019, both the TDP and the YSRCP tried every means to gain the trust of people of the state. The YSR Congress chief's controversial comment that the chief minister be shot dead on the streets landed him in trouble with the Election Commission, which ordered that criminal cases be filed against him.

YSRC president Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy's election strategist Prashant Kishor had a bitter first experience in AP, with the party being trounced in the Nandyal byelection.

The bye-election to the Nandyal Assembly seat had set off a bitter and ugly confrontation between CM Naidu and Jagan.

Silpa Mohan Reddy, a former Andhra Minister and Nandyal MLA for two times is a long-time rival of Bhuma Reddy in the TDP. A large LED screen was set up in front of the counting centre to tell the majority of the rounds.

So, with Modi himself declaring the TDP as the valued ally of the NDA, there is no way the BJP leadership will sever alliance with the TDP in Andhra! She also added peoples love is our strength. When asked to comment on the results of the Nandyal bypoll, Naidu said the people had once again shown confidence in his promise of development, public welfare and good governance.
