The party has powerful families like KE family and Bhooma family. To augument the party, Chandrababu has roped in Gouru famil also. He felt these three families will work together, mobilise support and win the district for the TDP. But, that's where the party's calculations floundered.
These three families worked at cross purposes and tried to outwit one another. All the three groups did not gel together. As a result, the TDP position is more precarious than ever before. The bickering ensured that the TDP may not win even the seats it held last time. The TDP could not get votes polled in its favour.
The YSRCP on the other hand played its cards well and ensured that it could convert its support into votes. The party feels it has advantage in Kurnool.
