The BJP-led NDA is making notable strides in southern states like Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka, with the latest trends from the Lok Sabha polls indicating a surge ahead of other parties.

In Andhra Pradesh, the NDA is leading in 20 out of 25 seats, with key alliances like N Chandrababu Naidu's TDP dominating 15, BJP leading in three, and Janasena Party in two. In close contests, Congress and its allies continue to lead in Telangana, Tamil Nadu, and Kerala, signaling another strong showing in these regions.
