Andhra Pradesh Urban Local Body Election 2021 Results Highlights: Jagan Mohan Reddy’s YSR Congress Party has swept local body polls in the state, completely thrashing the main opposition party TDP. The YSR Congress party literally buries the main opposition Telugu Desam in 75 municipalities and 11 municipal corporations. The humiliation for the TDP was such that it could cross the double-digit in only five ULBs while other opposition parties BJP and JSP made little gains.
The Congress was nowhere in the picture. The YSRC attributed the resounding victory to the faith people reposed in the leadership of Chief Minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy, who “lives up to his promises” and implemented a welfare agenda in the last 22 months. The ruling party also claimed the verdict was an endorsement of the government’s decision to have three different capitals for the state.
Voting for these municipal corporations and Nagar Panchayats in Andhra Pradesh was concluded on Wednesday. Ongole recorded the highest voter turnout of 75.52 per cent and Kurnool the lowest at 49.26 per cent. Average polling of 63.89 per cent was recorded in the state.
