    All eyes were on the YSR Congress Party to see which way the party would vote. While the TRS voted in favour of the NDA, the TDP backed Hariprasad. The YSRCP however kept everyone guessing till the last minute.

    The party had said before the elections, that it would vote against the NDA. However at the last minute the party took a u-turn and abstained from voting.

    YSRC MP Vijaya Sai Reddy declared that they are neither supporting the NDA candidate nor the Congress candidate as the BJP and the Congress have both cheated the people of Andhra Pradesh.

    He explained that they were of the belief that the opposition would field a non-Congress candidate. However when it became clear that the opposition was fielding a non-Congress candidate, they decided to give it a miss.
