Telangana Election Results 2018: TRS heads towards a massive victory
Telangana Rasthra Samithi is heading towards a massive victory for a second successive term.
Going by the trends, TRS is likely to get a three-fourths majority in the 119-member assembly, elections for which were held on Friday. It is a huge mandate for the party, which won 63 seats, just three seats more than the absolute majority, in 2014. That year, the strong Telangana sentiment prevailed.
For People’s Front, or the grand alliance of four opposition parties comprising the Congress, the Telugu Desam Party, the CPI and fledgling Telangana Jana Sena, the election results have come as a big shock. During the month-long electioneering, the grand alliance appeared to have put up a spirited fight to the TRS.
