Hyderabad: KCR's daughter K Kavitha, on Tuesday said that no one knows Telangana like her father KC Chandrasekhara Rao, who fondly called KCR. After few rounds of counting, KCR’s Telangana Rashtra Samithi has maintained brutal majority by leading in 90 seats out of 119 constituencies.
"We are seeing the response of the people. The hard work in four and a half years has paid off," Kavitha who is also a parliamentarian said. "Nobody knows Telangana like KCR," she remarked.
The ruling TRS marched ahead of rivals in Telangana, establishing a wide gap with closest rival Congress which has a lead in 21 seats only as the counting progressing. The party of Chief Minister K Chandrasekhara Rao or KCR was heading for a landslide in India's newest state, trends indicated.
KCR's gamble of having the assembly dissolved eight months before schedule has finally worked. The state election was originally scheduled alongside the Lok Sabha polls next year. To challenge the supremacy of KCR, traditional rivals the Congress and the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) of Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu campaigned together. ‘But this coalition was never a threat to KCR, said Kavitha.
"This is only a battle showcased on paper," she added. She also blamed Chandrababu Naidu saying Babu tried to hide his failures in Andhra Pradesh and hijacked the mahagatbhandhan to campaign in Telangana.
