Tags: News
Telangana Rashra Samithi, which successfully steered bifurcation movement for more than 13 years, will form the first government in the new state of Telangana, the 29th state of India.

Telangana has 119 Assembly seats and 17 MP seats. The party needed 60 seats on its own while it won 62 seats. TRS won 11 Lok Sabha seats. Congress won 21 Assembly seats and 2 MP seats. TDP-BJP combine also got 21 Assembly seats. MIM got seven seats and others won 12 Assembly seats. YS Jaganmohan Reddy’s YCP, which is in the second position in Andhra Pradesh after TD, has not opened its account in Telangana, which will come into being from June 2, the appointed date for the state.

In the residuary state of Andhra Pradesh, there are 175 Assembly seats and 25 MP seats. TD won 106 out Assembly seats and 17 MP seats. YSC won 67 Assembly seats and eight MP seats.

Telugu Desam, which was in the Opposition for two terms, will form the first government in the residuary state of Andhra Pradesh. YSC will be the main opposition party. Congress, which was in power in the united state, has been wiped out in the residuary Andhra Pradesh.

KCR won the Assembly seat from Gajwel and the MP seat from Medak, with 3.94 lakh majority. He credited the party’s performance to the people of Telangana. He said focus now would be on implementing the manifesto. “It is a responsibility that the people have given to us,” he said. He congratulated Modi and Naidu for their victories.

On the other hand, Naidu said the responsibility was on TD to rebuild the residuary state of Andhra Pradesh. Clarity would emerge on the financial strengths once the bifurcation of the state was complete. The effort would be to develop Andhra Pradesh into a `Swarnaandhra Pradesh’.

YS Jaganmohan Reddy, who will now be in the Opposition, said his party welcomed the people’s verdict and would play a constructive role being an Opposition leader.

“There was Modi wave and people have believed Chandrababu Naidu’s promises,” he said. The journey of this party started with one MLA and one MP. Now, his party has won in 67 seats of the 175 and eight MP seats and expected the party to improve in the next edition.
