YSRCP chief YS Jagan Mohan Reddy said the ruling TDP victory was a pyrrhic victory as they used money power to win the elections. He said the TDP won despite not having a majority in all the three constituencies where the polls were held. Chandrababu has proved himself to be an expert in horse trading, YS Jagan said Chandrababu Naidu has lured YSRCP members with wads of currency.

Reacting to the poll outcome, YSRCP MLA Gadikota Srikanth Reddy said the YSRCP cadre should not be demoralised as the victory was immoral and was achieved using money power. He dared the TDP leadership to ensure that the turncoats are made to resign their posts and fight the elections again.

YSRCP MLA Korumutla Srinivasulu said the TDP leaders have used the police to kidnap YSRCP voters and made them to swear in the presence of religious leaders that they would vote for the TDP. He said the TDP has won only because of camp politics.
