TRS will form govt in Telangana on its own: Owaisi

Hyderabad: All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (AIMIM) president Asaduddin Owaisi on Sunday claimed that K Chandrashekar Rao’s Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) is going to form the government in Telangana with a clear majority.

Speaking to ANI, Owaisi said: “The TRS is going to form the government in Telangana on their own strength; all the speculations which are being raised are baseless. We should wait for the result. I don’t want to comment on the Congress welcoming the AIMIM to Praja Kutami.”

For Telangana’s 119 seats, Times Now-CNX projected a clean sweep for the ruling the TRS with 66 seats. It gave 37 to Congress and 7 to BJP while others were given 9.

Republic TV-Jan Ki Baat gave TRS 50-65 seats and 38-52 to Congress, 4-7 to BJP and 8-14 to others. The majority mark is 60.

Telangana Legislative Assembly election was held on December 7. The results will be announced on December 11.
