The actor-politician said Andhra Pradesh needs the vast political and administrative experience at this crucial juncture to steer the state on the path of development and progress.

Pawan Kalyan recalled his meeting with Chandrababu Naidu in Rajahmundry jail in September last year. He said he had told Chandrababu Naidu’s wife Bhuvaneswari that good days will come soon.

BJP state president D. Purandeswari said people gave a massive mandate to the NDA as they were eager to end the destructive and anti-people rule of the YSR Congress Party.

Chandrababu Naidu will take oath as the Chief Minister on Wednesday. The swearing-in ceremony will be attended by Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

TDP-Jana Sena-BJP stormed to power with a landslide victory, bagging 164 seats in the 175-member Assembly.

TDP alone won 135 seats while the BJP candidates emerged victorious in eight constituencies.

YSR Congress Party, which had 151 seats in the previous House, was reduced to just 11 seats.

The alliance also won 21 out of 25 Lok Sabha seats.
