"It is very clear that Andhra Pradesh is witnessing a silent revolution to dislodge the TDP government. Common man is vexed with its misrule and wants a change," a beaming former Legislature Party leader Y S Rajasekhar Reddy, widely seen as Congress' chief ministerial candidate, told reporters as early trends indicated a landslide victory for his party.

Asked about the raging Telangana statehood issue, he said "the statehood demand has come up because of the wrong policies of the TDP government and total neglect of backward regions."

Reddy said his party government would strive to resolve the issue in co-operation with its ally Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS).

Ducking questions over who will become the Chief Minister in the event of Congress securing a majority, Reddy said "our party legislators are clever enough to choose their leader with the blessings of the High Command."
