Hyderabad: Anticipating violence after election results are declared on May 23, irrespective of whichever party wins in the politically charged state of Andhra Pradesh, the Election Commission will be dispatching 1,000 personnel of the Central paramilitary forces who will work with the state police force to deal with any outbreaks of violence.

On the face of it, the mood among party workers of both the Telugu Desam and the YSR Congress appears upbeat with both sides confident of victory, but with one side bound to lose, a burst of emotions and display of show of strength by party workers is what is likely to end in violence.
