In Nandyal, Mr. S.P.Y Reddy got 1,11,679 votes more than Sobha Nagireddy of TDP.

Mr. Suryaprakasa Reddy established lead in six segments while the TDP secured slight margin of 2,700 votes in Pathikonda. Surprisingly, an independent, James, who contested on the aeroplane symbol, polled 13,016 votes in Pathikonda, where another independent, Neeraja Reddy had contested on the same symbol in Assembly elections. Symbol confusion was prominent in Pathikonda.

In Dhone, Mr. Suryaprakasa Reddy secured a margin of 1,064 votes. He had a lead of 42,210 votes in Kurnool and in Adoni, of 24,583 votes. The general wave in favour of the Congress, the goodwill of Kotla Vijayabhaskar Reddy among voters and the sympathy generated for Mr. Suryaprakasa Reddy out of denial of ticket to him helped Mr. Reddy win comfortably.

In Nandyal, Mr. S.P.Y Reddy, established lead in all segments, with Nandyal and Giddalur giving him a majority of 50,861 and 20,054 votes respectively.
