In the Lok Sabha elections, the trends are no different. YSRCP leads in 23 seats while TDP in 2 seats.

Moods in the YSRCP camp already seems exuberant. Banners were put up outside Reddy’s residence on Thursday, congratulating him for being the next chief minister of the state.

The exit polls had predicted a close competition between incumbent CM Chandrababu Naidu’s Telugu Desam Party (TDP) and YS Jagan Mohan Reddy’s YSR Congress (YRSCP) in the Andhra Pradesh Assembly elections. Several had predicted that Jagan Mohan Reddy’s YSRCP would have an edge over incumbent CM Chandrababu Naidu’s TDP.

Going by the trends, Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister, Chandrababu Naidu will not only lose his CM position but his dream of becoming the kingmaker at the national level also seems to be fragmentizing.

Meanwhile, early trends show NDA leading in 344 seats while the UPA leads in 91 seats at the centre. The election commission has already declared the BJP’s leads alone has crossed 277 seats out of the total of 542 seats.
