Buoyed by the victory of Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) and the failure of Maha Kutami in the recent Telangana state election, AIMIM chief Asaduddin Owaisi on Tuesday lashed out at Rahul Gandhi and endorsed the idea of a Congress-mukt Bharat after 2019 General elections.
Addressing the media after the trends at 5 pm suggested an overwhelming 86 seat wins for TRS, as well as a promising eight seats for his own party, Owaisi was full of praise for K Chandrasekhar Rao while launching a scathing attack at the Maha Kutami, especially Rahul Gandhi and TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu.
He also went onto speak about the possibility of the two party working together and bringing an alternative of BJP and Congress to the people of this country on the national level.
At the stroke of 5 pm, TRS was leading in 86 seats, with the alliance of Congress and TDP only managing 22. The other seats in the 119-seat assembly were divided between AIMIM and BJP, with the former managing nine while the latter leading in a paltry two seats.
KCR's party's performance, according to the recent trends, was even better than what was predicted in the exit polls. In the poll of polls, a combination of five different polls, TRS were projected to win 65 seats, whereas the Maha Kutami were projected to win 41 seats.
Earlier in the day, Andhra Pradesh CM Naidu conceded defeat and congratulated his counterpart KCR on his astonishing victory. He sent forward his message through Twitter, which read, "Congratulating KCR garu for winning the Assembly elections in Telangana."
Prior to that TDP called for an introspection into the performance of their alliance with Congress. "We have to analyse the factors that contributed to the success of TRS and failure of our alliance. We were expecting to get more number of seats. The results are not to our expectations," said Ravula Chandrasekhar Reddy, senior leader of TDP.
