Telangana Assembly Election Exit Polls 2018

Telangana Assembly Election Exit Polls 2018

The grand alliance 'Praja Kutami'- comprising Congress, Telugu Desam Party (TDP), Telangana Jan Samithi (TJS) and CPI is taking on the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) for December 7 state assembly elections.

The stage is set for elections to the 119-member Telangana Assembly. The voting will take place in a single phase on December 7, while counting will be held on December 11. As the ruling Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) chose to go in for early elections, the Assembly was dissolved on September 6, eight months ahead of the date that its term was to expire on.

CONGRESS: Uttam Kumar Reddy Huzurnagar

The TRS will contest from all the 119 constituencies up for grabs all alone, while the Congress is leading 'Mahakutami' (grand alliance) of opposition parties. Besides Congress, the Telugu Desam Party (TDP), Telangana Jana Samithi (TJS) and Communist Party of India (CPI) comprise the 'Mahakutami'. The Bharatiya Janata Party has not joined hands with any party for the polls.

In the Telangana Assembly Elections 2014, the above-mentioned parties had contested the polls on their own. The K Chandrashekar Rao, or KCR-led TRS had won 63 of the 119 Assembly seats in Telangana Legislative Assembly Elections which took place in 2014. The TJS had, however, did not exist at that time.

In 2014, the TDP had won 15 Assembly seats, out of which 12 were from Greater Hyderabad.

As per the guidelines issued by the Election Commission, exit polls are not allowed between November 12 and December 7. However, a CVoter survey has shown that the Congress-TDP alliance will show the door to the ruling TRS.

As per the survey, the TRS is likely to win only 42 seats, while the Congress-led grand alliance will grab 64 seats. The survey further predicts the BJP’s number of winning seats at four, while the others are likely to grab nine seats.

The total number of voters in Telangana is 2,80,64,680, including 7,46,077 new voters. A total of 1,824 candidates are in the fray for the December 7 polls.

But KCR is confident of retaining the power despite anti-incumbency. The BJP, meanwhile, is treading cautiously. Fighting its own battle, the BJP is, however, raging an aggressive campaign in the state with even Prime Minister Narendra Modi addressing rallies. 

Elections to the 119-member Telangana Assembly will take place on December 7. The Congress has nominated candidates in 94 constituencies while TDP is contesting in 13 seats. CPI and TJS will contest from the remaining seats. 

Total Number of Voters in Telangana is: 2,80,64,680, including 7,46,077 new voters.
