KADAPA: With the announcement of the results of the Assembly and Lok Sabha elections set to be announced in a few hours, the punters in the district are in jitters.
Majority of the punters, including some politicians themselves, reportedly wagered huge sums of their money on the YSRC emerging victorious in these elections considering that the district was a bastion of the party. But the recently-announced results of the municipal and PR elections have now left punters worried.
There was heavy betting not only on the YSRC winning all the 10 Assembly seats in the district -- if not, the party bagging the maximum number of Assembly seats - but also on YSRC chief Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy becoming the CM of the Residuary AP state.
With the results of the municipal and ZPTC-MPTC elections out, wherein the TDP had outperformed the YSRC, the punters are now feeling that the YSRC may not do well in the Assembly and LS elections also and fear that they may lose heavily due to their ‘hasty’ bettings.
