‘YSR-Party Worried About Defeat’

This is the first time YSR Congress is facing elections outside their den ‘Kadapa’. The win or defeat in Kovur will not only decide Jagan’s but also the party’s future in AP politics.
Except in 2004, Kovur is the stronghold of TDP from the last two decades and now Jagan’s contestant should break the trend to ensure a win. Present YSRC contestant Prasanna Kumar is also an ex-member of TDP before resigning to his post. More than a simple win, Prasanna Kumar should also steer the victory with thumping majority. A less margin win will give an outlook that Jagan is not strong in any other place than Kadapa, which affects the party’s expectations at other poll bound places.
In the last minute, YSR Congress accused many other parties of distributing money and liquor to gain attention. Till noon, 30% polling has taken place in Kovur and the numbers are expected to rise by evening.
