The ruling Telangana Rashtra Samiti has won the assembly polls held with a huge win. Elections in Telangana will be held in a single phase on April 11 in all 17 seats, including Hyderabad. The final counting of votes will take place on May 23.
As per the latest reports, Congress party will go alone in the upcoming parliamentary election in Telangana. It will be contesting all the 17 Lok Sabha seats after the failure of the grand alliance experiment in the recent assembly polls. Congress party has won just 19 out of 119 assembly seats. Congress is very desperate to win at least 6 MP seats in the election.
