Lok Sabha Election HistoryEdit
Total number of Lok Sabha seats in Andhra Pradesh is 42 and after division seats come down to 25 out of which Congress has none. Although the state has been one of its bastions for a long time, Congress has swiftly performed a political suicide by trampling upon the 'balance' during bifurcation of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh. Today, Congress is more of a namesake party failing to win even a single State assembly seat or Lok Sabha seat. Most of its prior leaders left the party leaving it with a couple of loyal remnants who have since faced bitter defeats. With a present vote share of 2.56% and almost no real hope of increasing it despite strong incumbency, Congress is not expected to do any better in the near future.
