As the sitting MLA of Avanigadda, Ambati Brahmanayya, was died some time ago, the by-polls in this constituency was necessitated. The Congress party and the YSR CP have not contested in the polls on sympathy grounds which led to the victory of the TDP candidate, Ambati Srihari Prasad, the son of Brahmanayya with a huge majority on his nearest independent candidate.
Both Chandrababu Naidu and Balakrishna appreciated Srihari Prasad for his victory. Chandrababu also thanked the Congress and the YSR CP for cooperating them by not contesting in the elections. However, it was Balakrishna, who seems to be excited with the victory of the TDP candidate, as he said, this victory would give enough boost to TDP for the next general elections to win the elections. Moreover, this victory indicates peoples love and affection towards TDP.
