Who Will Win in By-Elections (for 18 seats) of AP 2012?
This is an interesting question for anyone from the state of Andhra Pradesh. This tenure of government has witnessed highest number of by-polls in Andhra Pradesh.
The present by-elections for 18 assembly constituencies of AP is conducted because of the gap due to removal of MLAs who are supporting YSR Congress Party.
YSR Congress Party: This elections are very much important to YS Jagan because it will be an acid test whether or not he can be successful as a separate entity. It will also confirm whether people are still with YSR and YS Jagan. Winning at least 15 to 16 of the 18 vacant seats will ensure that there is full support from people and that YSR Congress can become top party in AP sometime.
Congress: In order to withstand in the coming 2014 elections, congress need to make sure that they win decent number of seats in this by-elections.
TDP: Already there are rumors that this party has become weak. If they turn out to be failure in this by-elections 2012, they will surely be loosing faith to win main elections in 2014.
So these by-elections in 2012 for 18 assembly posts are very much crucial for every major party in AP.
