Riding high on the pro-Telangana sentiment, the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) is poised to win 11 Assembly seats in the by-elections which were held on July 26.
Counting of votes that began at 8 a.m. on Friday in all the 12 constituencies has been completed in seven and the results in all of them have gone in the TRS’ favour, while its ally the BJP has bagged the lone seat it contested. In the remaining five seats too, the TRS candidates are expected to win easily, reported The Hindu on Friday.
The Congress suffered a big blow when APCC president D. Srinivas, the party’s candidate from Nizamabad Urban, was defeated for the second consecutive time in 14 months by BJP’s Y. Lakshminarayana.
The by-elections were necessitated by the resignation of 10 MLAs of the TRS and one each of the TDP and BJP earlier this year.
