YSRC Sweeps 2nd Phase Of Panchayat Elections

Either unanimous election on the ballot fight, the YSRC party sweeps the Panchayat elections in the 2nd phase as well. 

The candidates supported by YSRC have swept the second phase of panchayat polls held in the state on Saturday. While candidates backed by the ruling party annexed about 80 per cent gram panchayats, those supported by TDP and other opposition parties won in the rest of the villages.

YSRC supporters bagged about 1,992 sarpanch seats out of the 2,504 villages where counting of votes was completed. TDP won around 500 seats. Out of 539 unanimous sarpanch posts in the second phase, YSRC won around 510. It was a near clean sweep for the ruling party in Prakasam and Anantapur districts. TDP-backed candidates won in some villages in Guntur district.

Polling for the second phase was mostly peaceful, barring minor skirmishes, with high turnouts reported in almost all the districts. Prakasam topped with 86 per cent polling, followed by Guntur at 85 percent. Krishna, which saw the highest polling percentage in first phase, saw 84 per cent polling. The state average stood at 81.61 per cent, almost similar to what was witnessed in the first phase.

Prakasam police pressed drone cameras for surveillance in 14 mandals of the district. The situation at polling centres was monitored through specially setup TV screens. District SP Siddharth Kaushal they decided to take the tech route to prevent violence.

On a whole, it clearly proves that there is not even an iota of anti incumbency wave in any part of the state as being propagated by the opposition party. The assumption of the opposition is being concluded as mere delusion.
