Telangana exit polls 2023: Pollster predicts advantage Cong over KCR-led BRS

Dec 03, 2023 07:35 AM IST

Telangana went to polls on Thursday, with around 23 million people casting their votes across 119 constituencies in the state.

The Congress could stage a comeback in the southern state of Telangana, possibly ruining incumbent chief minister Kalvakuntla Chandrashekar Rao (KCR)'s ambitions of a third straight term in office, exit poll projections by India Today-Axis My India showed on Friday.

The India Today-Axis My India in its exit poll has predicted that KCR's Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) might be reduced to 34-44 seats against the Congress set to achieve the majority mark by bagging 63-73 seats. The Bharatiya Janata Party might improve its 2018 tally and bag 4-8 seats while Asaduddin Owaisi's All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) is set to bag 5-8 seats.
