SEATS OF POWER
Congress has made itself irrelevant in Andhra but has gained in Karnataka
There is huge support for YSR Congress, whose gain is from Congress seats. The party may get 23- 27 seats if Lok Sabha polls were to be held now.
If Lok Sabha elections were to be held early, Congress would get only 6- 10 of the 26 seats while BJP could win 16- 20 seats.
Corruption charges and infighting among state BJP leaders seem to have paved the way for Congress resurgence. The survey shows a 9% swing against BJP.
The bickering between Congress and ally NCP may affect UPA’s vote share. UPA is likely to get 20- 23 seats and NDA23- 28 if Lok Sabha polls were to be held early.
Congress is likely to lose votes in 2014 Lok Sabha polls because of corruption charges. NDAcould get 10- 15 seats if polls were held today, while UPA could get 5- 10 seats.
SP could get 23- 27 seats, BSP 17- 21 seats. The swing towards BJP is likely because it’s an alternative to the Congress at the Centre and BSP and SP are not.
