For the first time in the History of Congress, the party is clinging on 'Development' flank. Coveted for corruption, this election is surely an uphill battle. However, Congress is so far well ahead and poised to win.
Congress is the oldest of Political parties in Andhra Pradesh and has ruled the state almost unanimously until 1983, when NTR with his Telugu Desam Party defeated Congress.
