Posted on 16th Feb 2015 06:15 pm by mohit kumar

Hyderabad, Feb 16 (IANS) The Telugu Desam Party (TDP) has retained the Tirupati assembly seat in Andhra Pradesh with a huge majority.

M. Suguna of the ruling party won the by-election, defeating her nearest rival R. Sreedevi of the Congress party by over 1.16 lakh votes.

Out of 1,47,216 votes polled, Suguna bagged 1,26,152 votes.

All other candidates including Sreedevi of Congress lost their deposit.

The Congress candidate finished a poor second with just 9,628 votes.

The main opposition party YSR Congress did not field a candidate in the by-election to reciprocate the TDP's gesture in not contesting the Allagadda assembly seat.

The Tirupati by-election was necessitated by the death of Suguna's husband M. Venkatramna.
