According to the latest EC update, Congress was leading in 65 of the 118 seats that it contested, while the BRS was ahead in 39 segments.

After meeting DGP Anjani Kumar, Reddy set out for a roadshow in the state. He witnessed a massive gathering in his support, cheering for him and waving the party flag.

As the party comfortably crossed the halfway mark, Congress workers expressed their joy by pouring milk on posters featuring Congress parliamentary party chairperson Sonia Gandhi and party MP Rahul Gandhi.

With the victory in Telangana, the Congress would solidify its presence in the southern states after it formed the government in Karnataka earlier this year.

The 119-member Telangana assembly has been ruled by K Chandrashekar Rao-led Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) since 2014, the Congress' victory would shatter the incumbent's wish to strike a hattrick.
