HYDERABAD: The YSR Congress Party led by YS Jaganmohan Reddy on Thursday virtually decimated the Chandrababu Naidu-led TDP and appeared on course for a landslide win in Andhra Pradesh with its candidates winning in 74 seats and leading in 76 others. The ruling Telugu Desam Party won in 12 seats and was leading in an equal number while actor-politician's Jana Sena party was ahead in one, according to the late night trends on the Election Commission website.

The YS Jaganmohan Reddy-led YSRC was expected to end up with over a three-fourths majority in the 175-member Assembly.

Later speaking to reporters, Reddy told reporters that he would take oath as CM at Vijayawada on May 30 and promised to bring in governance that the country would stand up and look to.

With his party set to wrest power, Reddy on Thursday described it as ''people's victory.'' Terming his party's good show in the state Assembly polls and Lok Sabha elections as a "new chapter" in the history of Andhra Pradesh, Reddy told reporters such a massive mandate came with a tremendous amount of responsibility.

"I will make sure that I live up to that expectations," he added. As the trends indicated a clear lead for the YSRC, TDP president Chandrababu Naidu forwarded his resignation from the Chief Minister's post to state Governor E S L Narasimhan, who accepted it.
