The exit polls for the state of Telangana where elections were held on Friday are all unanimous in one thing -- KCR pulled a masterstroke by dissolving the state assembly and forcing early elections in the state.

Despite the Congress going hammer and tongs in Telangana, fielding Sonia Gandhi for a rare campaign rally and even allying with Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister Chandrababu Naidu's TDP, six different exit polls predict that the TRS will be the largest party. Some polls, including the poll of polls, project that KCR will have a majority on his own.
