We will win majority seats: YSRCP

May 14, 2014: Asserting that the Party has fared very well in the local bodies’
elections, YSRCP has said that it will win 120 assembly and more than 20 MP seats
in the general elections. 

“Being a
new party we have done extremely well in the local bodies and as the general
elections will be fought on a different plank and people in favour of YS Jagan
Mohan Reddy’s leadership, we will win majority of the assembly and Lok Sabha
seats,” party senior leader Dr MV Mysoora Reddy told reporters here on

apart the changing political equations and polarization of votes between the
local bodies and general elections also went in our favour and according our
internal survey we will win 110-120   assembly seats and more than 20
Lok Sabha seats, he said.  

On the
results to local bodies’ elections, he said, we honour the verdict of the
people but a close look at the picture and percentages shows that we have done
very well. The factors that influence in these elections are mostly local
issues and local leadership and since the number of votes for MPTC will be just
2,000 the margin would be wafer thin.

difference between our Party and TDP in municipal elections was 4 % and it
fallen to less than three per cent and local bodies’ election and in general
elections we will have an upper hand, he said.  

It was a
2.9 % of difference of votes that gave the results and in districts like Srikakulam,
Vizianagaram and Visakhapatnam the difference of percentage is much less.
 In many places the difference of margin was very less and in some places
it was wafer thin even.  

When it
comes to the assembly and Lok Sabha elections, the pattern would be different
as they are fought on a different plank and the leadership of YS Jagan Mohan
Reddy has been the binding factor as people are in favour of his candidature,
he said.  

we have given more number of seats to Kapu community and BCs. The BJP-TDP
tie-up, which was forged after the local bodies’ elections, will certainly go
in our favour and YSRCP is placed in an advantageous position,” he said.  

asked to comment on the survey reports of a former Congress MP, he said: “the
very basis of the survey is faulty. Objective data is collected for opinion polls
and not for exit polls. The person said that he used objective data for exit
polls, which will not reflect the mood of the voter.  

surveys are useful only for betting and other such commercial activity and has
no authenticity,” he said.
