YSRCP to get 10 seats and others to get only one. Addressing media in Tirupati, Rajagopal Said that his survey was based on a detailed study from the month of January. He said that Amaravati, Polavaram project and, welfare schemes played an important role in the predicted victory for Naidu’s party.

On the other hand, a Hyderabad based survey team called Centre for Psephology Studies (CPS) of eminent psephologist Dr. Venugopala Rao said that that YSRCP was all set to form the next government in Andhra Pradesh and was likely to bag 121 to 130 MLAs seats.
