Jagan will lead in AP: Survey, Pre-poll survey, YSR Congress, Agastya Research and Analysis Agency. The halfway mark in the 175-seat Seemandhra House is 88. The Telugu Desam-BJP combine could win 55 to 65 Assembly seats and seven to 10 Lok Sabha seats, the survey showed.
Hyderabad: A pre-poll survey conducted by Aaraa, a city-based agency, has predicted that the YSR Congress could get between 105 and 112 Assembly seats and 15 to 18 Lok Sabha seats in Seemandhra.
Agastya Research and Analysis Agency (Aaraa), the agency which carried out the statewide pre-poll survey, said it structured the sample to reflect constituency-level caste combinations of voters.
The halfway mark in the 175-seat Seemandhra House is 88. The Telugu Desam-BJP combine could win 55 to 65 Assembly seats and seven to 10 Lok Sabha seats, the survey showed.
In Telangana, Aaraa reported that the Telangana Rashtra Samiti could emerge as the single largest party but it could be a hung Assembly with no party crossing the half-way mark of 60 in the 119-member House.
Aaraa said that Seemandhra may see the highest number of potentially winning Independent candidates, who couldn’t find a berth in either the YSRC or the TD. The damage these Independents can cause needs to be watched closely, the report said. The last date for withdrawal of nominations is April 23, by which time the parties should persuade them to withdraw. Aaraa said that its survey covered 25,000 voters.
Interestingly, unlike in the rest of the country, the perceived wave in favour of BJP prime ministerial candidate Narendra Modi is countered by the negative impact of the party’s support to state division in Seemandhra, according to the survey.
