Asserting that the Party has fared very well in the local bodies' elections, YSR Congree Party today said it will win 120 assembly and more than 20 MP seats in the general elections.

'Being a new party we have done extremely well in the local bodies and as the general elections will be fought on a different plank and people are in favour of YS Jagan Mohan Reddy's leadership, 'We will win majority of the Assembly and Lok Sabha seats, 'party senior leader Dr MV Mysoora Reddy told reporters here.

This apart, the changing political equations and polarization of votes between the local bodies and general elections also went in our favourand according to our internal survey, we will win 110-120 assembly seats and more than 20 Lok Sabha seats, he said.

On the results to local bodies' elections, he said, 'we honour the verdict of the people but a close look at the picture and percentages shows that we have done very well.

The factors that influence in these elections are mostly local issues and local leadership and since the number of votes for MPTC will be just 2,000 the margin would be wafer thin, he said.
