New Delhi, Dec 11 : The Congress party, which made a strong come back in Hindi heartland in the recently held state polls, the closer look at the results in Telangana shows the grand old party could have done better without the alliance of regional outfits Telugu Desham Party (TDP), Telanganga Jana Samiti (TJS) and Communist Party of Inida (CPI).
"The alliances should be made which are saleable; acceptable to the people and made on time", Congress spokesman PC Chacko told reporters here analysing the outcome in the southern state, which was formed in 2014 during the UPA government.
The Congress campaign in the state focused on the alleged non-performance of the K Chandrasekhar Rao (KCR)-led TRS regime and had emotional appeal too as the statehood was granted by the Manmohan Singh government.
Even Sonia Gandhi during her campaign reminded the voters that the statehood was granted during the second UPA dispensation and she hoped the electorate would reward the grand old party for the same.
But the fact that the poll managers of the Congress got into action very late could also be a principal factor the rout for the second time in five years. UNI
