Kovur N Prasanna Kumar Reddy YSR Congress
Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) bagged four Assembly seats on Wednesday, ensured the victory of Nagam Janardhan Reddy, an independent it supported, but conceded the sixth seat in Telangana – Mahabubnagar – to the BJP.
The YSR Congress won by a comfortable margin from the lone seat it contested, Kovur in Nellore district of coastal Andhra, making certain that the Congress and the Telugu Desam drew a blank in the seven Assembly by-election seats.
In Kovur, YSR Congress candidate N Prasanna Kumar Reddy beat TDP’s S Chandra Mohan Reddy.
The BJP also won one seat. The party’s Y Srinivas Reddy beat the ruling Congress candidate M Prakash in Mahabubnagar.
Congress candidates stood in the second place in four seats and the TDP in two. TDP candidates also forfeited their security deposits in Kamareddi, Mahabubnagar and Nagarkurnool. Yet, their leaders were largely unfazed, having resigned themselves to the impact of the pro-Telangana sentiment in six seats and the Jagan factor in one. The Congress leaders had themselves to blame for the debacle since its leaders did not campaign wholeheartedly. In the case of the BJP, its leaders feel that their pro-Telangana stand is vindicated again as also their decision to field a candidate against the TRS
