Amaravati, March 14 : Andhra Pradesh’s ruling YSR Congress Party (YSRCP) is heading for a clean sweep in urban local body election as counting of votes was underway on Sunday in 11 municipal corporations and 70 municipalities.
The YSCRCP was leading in most of the divisions in Urban Local Bodies (ULBs) which went to polls on March 10.
In the 90-member Greater Visakhapatnam Municipal Corporation, the biggest among the state corporations, YSRCP won 27 divisions out of 44 results declared till 2 p.m. The principal opposition Telugu Desam Party (TDP) won 14 divisions while the Jana Sena Party (JSP) of actor-politician Pawan Kalyan was distant third with just one seat.
In the 64-member Vijayawada Corporation, the YSRCP was racing ahead by winning 18 divisions while the TDP bagged five divisions.
In 57-member Guntur Municipal Corporation, the ruling party swept the polls by winning 44 seats. The TDP managed to win nine divisions while the JSP bagged two.
All eyes are on Vijayawada and Guntur Corporations as the results would virtually be seen as a referendum on the contentious state capital issue.
