The ruling TRS in Telangana scored a thumping victory by bagging 99 in the 150 wards in the polls results of which were declared late last night.
Opposition Congress (2) and TDP-BJP (1-4) combine suffered a humiliating defeat having been reduced to single digit scores.The largely old city-based MIM, led by Hyderabad MP Asaduddin Owaisi, was the only party that withstood the onslaught of the ruling party by winning 44 wards.
The victory completed the domination of TRS in Telangana politics as the party had, hitherto, been considered weak in the GHMC limits.
The results showed that the TRS had come a long way from not even contesting the last GHMC elections in 2009. It won just a couple of seats among the 24 assembly segments that came under the GHMC limits.
