TD candidates Shilpa Chakrapani Reddy and Vakati Narayana Reddy won from Kurnool and Nellore respectively.
Hyderabad: The ruling Telugu Desam party has conquered Kadapa winning the Member of Legislature Council seat under the local authorities’ quota and has proven that the district is no longer YSR’s family bastion.
In a major setback to Andhra Pradesh Opposition leader Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy, his party has not only lost three MLC seats under the MLA quota in AP, but has suffered a humiliating defeat on his home turf where TD candidate BTech Ravi won against YSR’s brother Y.S. Vivekananda Reddy.
Counting of ballots for the five MLC seats under the Teachers’ constituency and Graduates’ constituency is still on and the results are likely to be announced after midnight.
