Though the incumbent MLA Narasapuram Bandaru Madhava Naidu is from TDP, Kapu Corporation chairman and former minister Kottapalli Subbaraidu also has come into the fray.As the TDP high command is yet to take a decision on Narasapuram, punters are having a field day and betting big on the candidature.
While bets are being placed mainly on TDP and YSRC, punters are also betting big on the number of seats will be won by the Jana Sena, which is making its election debut, by banking on the charisma of actor-turned-politician Pawan Kalyan and his hold on the imagination of the state’s burgeoning youth population.
Once the decision is announced half of them will enjoy the money shower while others will be at the receiving end with huge losses.Bets have been also placed on YSRC candidates at those places where leaders from other parties have joined the party and also where the competition is high for tickets in the twin Godavari districts.Betting also took place in Krishna and Guntur districts on a few constituencies like Ponnur and Mangalagiri on YSRC candidates.Since betting has started early this time, results also have picked up pace.
