After the resounding victory in the Assembly polls, Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) working president KT Rama Rao believes the party can win 16 seats in the 2019 Loksabha polls. He also claims the massive verdict in the state will have a bearing on the role his party is set to play on the national front.
TRS strongman, KTR, in a press meet at Somajiguda, revealed that 98 per cent of the voters have chosen TRS, which is by far a solid support. Thanking Telangana people for their support, KTR further revealed that he had predicted that national party that is in power at the Centre, Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), will lose deposits in at least 100 seats.
His words came true as they lost their deposits in 103 seats. Congress faced the same fate, with Uttam Kumar’s ‘boasting’ falling flat, he said. He said that with this mandate, he has the responsibility of fulfilling all promises.
