Exit Poll Results Andhra Pradesh LIVE: The News18-IPSOS survey has predicted a big surge in the number of seats won by YSR Congress chief Jagan Mogan Reddy, dealing a blow to Andhra Pradesh CM Chandrababu Naidu’s attempts to be the kingmaker.

The exit poll has predicted 10-12 seats for the TDP, while the YSR Congress is likely to win 13-14 seats. The Andhra Pradesh Assembly exit poll results will be out soon. 

The challenges before Telugu Desam Party (TDP) chief Nara Chandrababu Naidu were many when he set out to seek re-election in assembly polls and a kingmaker role in the Lok Sabha election, the first to be held in the state following its bifurcation in 2014.

This was also the first election in the state since Naidu broke it off with the BJP-led NDA over delay in granting special status to Andhra.
