All eyes are on Natasimha Balakrishna on the counting day. With most of the exit polls predicting dooms day for Chandra Babu Naidu's TDP which is ruling the state at present, speculation is on whether Balakrishna can retain his seat from Hindupur constituency.
Balakrishna is facing huge anti-incumbency and allegations of neglecting his constituency. However, his fans rubbish all of them and say Balakrishna will win easily as he undertook many developmental schemes. His rivals, however, attack him for not even providing drinking water to many places in the constituency.
Now many are wondering whether sentiment will present victory to Balakrishna. In 2014, counting was held at Sri Krishnadevaraya University and this time too, the counting venue is the same.
Balakrishna at that time stayed in Room No 9 at the RTD Stadium during the counting and he won Hindupur with a handsome majority. Now Balakrishna according to sources asked the officials to allot him room no 9.
Inside talk is the officials told him that they have already allocated the room to another person. But following Balakrishna's influence, the officials allotted Room No 9. The question is can Balakrishna win riding on the sentiment.
