According to the exit poll conducted by India Today-Axis My India predicted the ruling Telangana Rashtriya Samithi is getting a whopping 46 percent vote share, and it is expected to bag 71 to 91 seats in the 119-member assembly. The TDP–Congress Mahakutami is projected to get 21-33 seats while the Bhartiya Janta Party may get somewhere between 1-3 seats.
On another exit poll conducted by Times Now-CNX TRS seems to be in a comfortable position in the Telangana assembly elections and will get somewhere around 66 seats for the party. The Congress-TDP alliance will get 37 seats and the BJP only 7.
An exit poll by TV9 Telugu-ARA predicted a clean sweep for the TRS with 75-85 seats and to the BJP it gave 25-35 seats.
It seems like Telangana Rashtriya Samithi decision to dissolve the premature assembly worked for them as all exit polls predicting a comfortable victory for K Chandrashekhar Rao Led Party
Telangana Assembly Elections were held on Friday, December 7 and recorded around 65% voter turnout till 5 pm. Authorities said figures expected to rise as long queues were reported in many polling stations.
The assembly polls in Telangana were originally scheduled to be held simultaneously with the Lok Sabha elections next year, but the House was dissolved on September 6 as per a recommendation of the state cabinet. It is to be seen if TRS chief K Chandrasekhar Rao’s gamble to opt for early elections pays off.
The Congress has stitched together the ‘Prajakutami’ (People’s Front) along with the Telugu Desam Party (TDP), the Telangana Jana Samiti (TJS) and the Communist Party of India (CPI), to take on the ruling TRS.
The TRS, seeking a second term in office, is going alone, as also the BJP.
