Kakinada municipal poll results: TDP wins mayor post

The opposition YSR Congress had to be content with just ten seats. The BJP, TDP's ally, won three seats while independents got another three.

Election to the KMC was held on August 29 and counting of votes was taken up today. It is after a gap of over two decades that the TDP captured power in Kakinada city. Kakinada, a port town, has been chosen as a Smart City under the Smart Cities Mission.

"People have once again voted for development and welfare agenda. Their aspiration to develop Kakinada into a Smart City has been reflected in the civic election," Deputy Chief Minister (Home) N China Rajappa, who spearheaded the party campaign in Kakinada, said.
