BJP-backed candidate A.V.N. Reddy was declared elected as the MLC in the Mahbubnagar-Ranga Reddy-Hyderabad Teachers constituency polls held four days ago.

The BJP-backed candidate was declared elected after he won 13,436 votes, crossing the magic figure of 12,709. No other candidate secured a sufficient number of first preference votes. The result was declared after 21 rounds of counting.

BRS-backed PRTU candidate Chenna Keshava Reddy got eliminated after the 20th round of counting while the Congress-backed candidate got knocked out of the second round.

The counting of votes continued at the Saroornagar stadium late till Thursday night. Returning officer Priyanka Ala said that 452 votes were found invalid.

Ala said that candidates who got fewer votes were eliminated from the counting of second preferential votes.
