YSR KADAPA: The ruling YSR Congress Party (YSRCP) candidate Dr Dasari Sudha, the widow of the late G Venkata Subbaiah, who was the sitting legislator, has trounced both the BJP's Panatala Suresh and Congress’s Kamalamma and won with a huge margin of more than 90,550 votes in the Badvel Assembly bypoll.
In what could be perceived as a one-sided contest, her victory was evident right from the first round of counting where the YSRCP was dominant right from when it started at 8 AM on Tuesday.
Four counting centers were set up and seven tables were set up in each counting center. The counting of votes was completed in a maximum of 13 rounds. The BJP and Congress lost their deposits. Though the BJP was supported by the TDP, Jana Sena Party lost the elections.
