Narsapuram Lok Sabha Elections

Narsapuram is one of the 25 Lok Sabha constituencies in Andhra Pradesh. Congress enjoyed a lot of political clout here over the first several decades since independence before TDP and BJP managed to create inroads here.

Situated in the West Godavari region, Narsapuram constituency has a little over 13 lakh electors with a gender ratio in favour of women - 50.74 per cent.

Here, Congress secured wins in the Lok Sabha elections of 1962, 1967, 1971, 1977 and 1980 before four successive wins for TDP till 1996. BJP's maiden win came in 1999 and then again in 2014 when Gokaraju Ganga Raju won by a margin of 85,351 votes to defeat YSRCP's Vanka Ravindranath. Congress' Kanumuri Bapiraju was third with a measly 27,083 votes, just ahead of independent candidate Gitadas Das who managed 23,260 votes.

The voter turnout was at 82.19% while the overall turnout in the state of Andhra Pradesh was 74.47 per cent in 2014 Lok Saha election.

Ahead of Lok Sabha election this year, parties have begun to develop strategies to turn the political tide in their favour. TDP is on shaky grounds with Kanumuru Raghurama Krishnam Raju - a noted face in the Narsapuram constituency - crossing over to the YSRCP camp. If his experience will help YSRCP gain a solid foothold here remains to be seen.
