Pwan had wooed BSP's Mayawati and gave her all the SC reserved seats to her. Mayawati had even campaigned for her candidates. Pawan fell at her feat so many times that this became a hot topic of discussion. All this was aimed at garnering the Dalit votes. This was also seen as an attempt to undercut the Dalit support to the YSRCP. This was also believed to be part of Chandrababu's grand plan to defeat the YSRCP.
The Communists have contested seven seats each. The BSP contested 20 seats. But, only four candidates could manage to get at least 10000 votes.

But, all their hopes are now belied.
