Assembly Election 2019 Exit Poll Updates: 70% votes cast in seven polling stations in Andhra Pradesh
By Firstpost 20-May-2019
In Andhra Pradesh, for the TDP, which won the 2014 elections comfortably, retaining power is crucial while for the principal opposition YSR Congress, it's a must-win situation to ensure its political sustainability.
Congress is seeking a resurrection in Andhra Pradesh after the rout it suffered post-bifurcation of the state in 2014.
Stakes are not high for the BJP, but it is seeking to make a point on its relevance in the state's political landscape.
While the main fight will be between the TDP and the YSR Congress, all eyes are on Jana Sena as it could alter the fortunes of either party by splitting the votes, particularly that of a dominant community that tilted the scales in favour of TDP in 2014.
In 2014, the TDP had an alliance with the BJP and the combine was supported by the Jana Sena Party of Telugu film star Pawan Kalyan.
Jana Sena did not contest any seats then.
Polls for 60 Assembly seats and two parliamentary seats in Arunachal Pradesh were held on 11 April.
Exuding confidence in the BJP's poll prospects in Arunachal Pradesh, Chief Minister Pema Khandu had said that voters will help the saffron party accomplish its mission of "60 plus two" in the state.
"We have a target of winning all the seats and the BJPs mission is 60 plus two," Khandu had said while addressing an election rally in the presence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
