In Telangana, two vacancies will arise with the completion of term of D Srinivas and Capt V Lakshmikanth Rao.

Since the ruling YSR Congress party in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana Rashtra Samithi in Telangana have adequate number of MLAs, they would bag all the seats in their respective states.

In Telangana, a separate notification was already issued on Wednesday for the by-election to Rajya Sabha seat caused by the resignation of Banda Prakash. The election will be held this month. This will also be bagged by the TRS.

It would be interesting to see who will get the nomination to the RS seats from the YSRC and the TRS in their respective states.
