The most surprising of all of those voters was the one who had the ID proof and name of Bollywood superstar Salman Khan. It was the strength test for the TRS party in Hyderabad. The party was in the news since its victory in the Warangal Lok Sabha elections.

The candidates who saw the major setbacks included Congress former mayor Kartheeka Reddy, Kondapur TRS candidate Hameed Patel won, Congress’ mayor candidate Vikram Goud lose, and former Hyderabad Mayor Banda Karthika Reddy lost the GHMC election. Till this point, TRT has already won 82, MIM 30, BJP 3, TDP 1, Congress 1, and others 0.
These elections are considered as one of the most prestigious battles. It is the first election carried out after the formation of Telangana out of Andhra Pradesh in 2014. Overall, the TRS party showed the terrific performance. They didn’t participate in the 2009 elections.
The party led by KCR managed to win only three seats at the Assembly out of 24 in 2009 elections in Andhra Pradesh. At the end, it is clearly a devastating loss to Congress. In the last session, Congress had won 55 seats.
