Andhra Pradesh Assembly results once again proved that TDP victory was certain if it has an alliance with the BJP. After the formation of the TDP in 1982 in the united Andhra Pradesh six times and after State bifurcation in the residuray State of Andhra Pradesh three times Assembly elections were held. In these nine Assembly elections the TDP contested eight times with the alliance. With the alliance of the BJP, the TDP contested five times and four times the TDP came to power, including the current Assembly elections. In the 1985 Assembly elections for the first time the TDP contested in alliance with the BJP in the united Andhra Pradesh. Here the interesting point was for the first time the BJP and Left parties were in the same alliance with the TDP. In these elections, the TDP won 202 seats. In 1999 Assembly elections in the combined State, the TDP contested in alliance with the BJP and won 180 seats out of 294 seats. In 2004 too, the TDP contested in alliance with the BJP and won only 47 seats.
After State bifurcation in 2014 Assembly elections, the TDP contested in alliance with the BJP and won 102 seats out of total 175 seats. In 2019 Assembly elections the TDP contested alone for the first time and was defeated. The TDP won only 23 seats. The alliance with BJP has become a sentiment to the TDP. Because of that only the TDP supremo N Chandrababu Naidu tried to have an alliance with the BJP though later it was not interested. Jana Sena president Pawan Kalyan intervened and brought pressure on the BJP and convinced to have an alliance with the TDP. Finally, the BJP leadership agreed to join in the alliance of TDP and Jana Sena.
In the current Assembly elections, the TDP contested in alliance with the Jana Sena and the BJP and won record number of Assembly seats.
