Earlier, ECI had deferred the poll due to the COVID 19 pandemic.

TRS has 102 seats in the Legislative Assembly and its ally AIMIM has seven seats, which makes it easy for the ruling party to sweep the election. Similarly, YSRCP has 150 seats in AP Legislative Assembly and the party is set to win the election with ease.
