NDA may do well in LS polls in Andhra?

NDA may do well in LS polls in Andhra?

Popular social activist, psephologist and political leader Yogendra Yadav has predicted that the National Democratic Alliance will come back to power at the Centre again, but with truncated figures.

He indicated that the Bharatiya Janata Party will not be able to get absolute majority on its own, but it has to depend on its political alliance partners in the NDA.

With regard to Andhra Pradesh, Yogendra Yadav said the NDA will get 15 Lok Sabha seats, with the TDP bagging 11 seats, Jana Sena Party one and the BJP three seats. The remaining 10 Lok Sabha seats will go into the account of YSR Congress party.

Though Yadav did not predict who will form the government in Andhra Pradesh, it has given the impression that the NDA might come to power in the state, if one has to extrapolate the Lok Sabha election results with that of assembly election results.

Going by that, the NDA will get 105 assembly seats, whereas the YSRCP will end up with 70 assembly seats in the 175-member state assembly. However, there are also chances that people might have voted for NDA in Lok Sabha polls and the YSRCP in the assembly elections.

In Telangana, however, the psephologist predicted that the BJP might not get more than four Lok Sabha seats, while the Congress might get 10-12 Lok Sabha seats. The BRS might get one or two LS seats.

Yadav’s predictions more or less match that of political strategist Prashant Kishor, who too predicted the return of the BJP for the third consecutive term with lesser majority. He, too, guessed that the YSRCP is going to concede the defeat to the NDA.
