With YSR Congress Party almost decimating TDP out of power in Andhra Pradesh, Jagan Mohan Reddy who steered his party YSRCP to a spectacular victory in the Assembly and Lok Sabha elections is set to take oath as Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh on May 30.

YSRCP chief Jagan Mohan Reddy is the son of former chief minister of undivided Andhra Pradesh YS Rajasekhara Reddy, who died in a helicopter crash in September 2009.

With YSR Congress Party gaining a landslide victory in the 2019 Assembly elections, Jagan Mohan Reddy has repeated what his father had achieved in 2004 when he dislodged Telugu Desam Party's (TDPs) N Chandrababu Naidu out of power.

In election trends, YSRCP is leading in 22 out of 25 Parliamentary Constituencies in Andhra Pradesh and TDP only on three, while in 175-member State Assembly, Reddy is leading on 149 seats with TDP marginalized to 25 and Pawan Kalyan Jana Sena Party to only 1.

In the 2014 Assembly elections, TDP had formed the government with 102 seats while YSRCP bagged 67 seats. 

"It is the victory of people of Andhra Pradesh," Jagan said in his post on Facebook as the trends showed the YSRCP leading in 150 seats in 175-member Assembly.

Jagan thanked the people for blessing the YSRCP with their support and votes and said he would try to live up to the people's expectations.

IN PICS: It's celebration time in the BJP, YSRC and DMK camps

The assembly elections in Andhra Pradesh mark a defining moment in the political scene of the state.

The victory of Jaganmohan Reddy has put a massive question mark on TDP President Chandrababu Naidu's attempt to mark his stamp in national politics with the formation of the Third Front. Though Naidu allied with the BJP in 2014 Lok Sabha elections, this time he decided to fight alone and against the BJP.

Andhra Assembly results 2019: These are the key battles

 In the Lok Sabha elections with 25 seats, the YSRCP, BJP and JSP are looking to take a share which will make the incumbent TDP vulnerable and they will have tough battle. On the assembly elections with 175 seats, the TDP managed to get the majority allying with BJP but this time around, the
YSRCP looks to return to power and it's going to be neck to neck. Here are the key battles: 

> Nara Lokesh, son of TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu and incumbent IT Minister for the first time has contested elections from Mangalagiri. His rival is YSRC candidate and incumbent MLA A Ramakrishna Reddy. The latter won the 2014 election with a wafer-thin margin of 12 votes. Reddy’s nearest rival in the last election was  Ganji Chiranjeevi of TDP.

Chandrababu Naidu vs Jaganmohan Reddy

Who is going to be the Chief Minister? Will TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu retain power or will YSRCP’s Jagan Mohan Reddy end the reign of his political rival?
