Deccan Chronicle - - Politics - DC COR­RE­SPON­DENT

Congress-led Peo­ple’s Front lead­ers on Satur­day ex­uded con­fi­dence of form­ing the gov­ern­ment on De­cem­ber 12 in Te­lan­gana. TPCC chief N. Ut­tam Ku­mar Reddy said the peo­ple voted for Congress and its al­lies on Fri­day with high hopes.

While ex­press­ing con­fi­dence that the Con­gressled Peo­ple’s Front would win 75 to 85 seats in the state, he said though the TRS had ear­lier said that they would win 100 seats, they have come down to 80 seats af­ter wit­ness­ing the poll trend on Fri­day.

He claimed the Peo­ple’s Front echoes the true voice of peo­ple of Te­lan­gana and it suc­cess­fully high­lighted the is­sues con­cern­ing com­mon peo­ple. He said votes have been trans­ferred among al­lies suc­cess­fully. Main­tain­ing that the peo­ple are tired of the fourand-half-year rule of Mr K. Chan­drasekhar Rao, he said the TRS would not win more than 35 seats.

The TPCC pres­i­dent has al­leged that the Elec­tion Com­mis­sion failed to con­duct elec­tions in a fair and trans­par­ent man­ner and hence Chief Elec­toral Of­fi­cer Ra­jath Ku­mar had to apol­o­gise to the peo­ple of Te­lan­gana. Re­fer­ring to the exit polls which in­di­cated the vic­tory of the TRS, he said In­dia To­day ed­i­tor Ra­jdeep Sarde­sai called him and asked him not to trust the sur­vey by his own chan­nel.

Te­lan­gana TD pres­i­dent L. Ra­mana said the Peo­ple’s Front would im­ple­ment its com­mon agenda which would be mon­i­tored by a com­mit­tee to be headed by Prof. M. Ko­dan­daram.
