He, however, remained evasive on whether or not a fourth candidate would be fielded to spoil the lone opposition YSRC's chance of winning one seat. A total of four seats are to be filled from AP.

The TDP-BJP combine can comfortably bag three seats while the YSRC stands the chance of winning its maiden seat in the Upper House of Parliament.
