The Telangana Director General of Police, accompanied by Sanjay Jain and Mahesh Bhagwat, met Anumula Revanth Reddy, a participant in the ongoing Legislative Assembly election, at his residence in Hyderabad. They presented a flower bouquet during the visit.
In the Telangana Election 2023, A Revanth Reddy, the candidate representing the Indian National Congress, emerged victorious from the Kodangal seat. His win comes as part of the latest updates revealing Congress’s securing of a majority with 63 out of 119 seats, while the ruling Bharat Rashtra Samiti (BRS) trails behind with 40 seats.
This victory marks a significant turning point as it ends the Bharat Rashtra Samiti’s reign since the state’s formation in 2014. Realizing Congress’s clear mandate, Revanth Reddy promptly headed to the Hyderabad party office to celebrate the victory with supporters and party members.
The success of Congress in Telangana is attributed to their electoral pledges, modeled after the successful strategies used in Karnataka. These commitments encompassed various aspects, such as offering free bus travel for women, monthly cash transfers, and a broad spectrum of promises supporting farmers, education, housing schemes, and land allotments for individuals involved in the state movement. These guarantees aimed at benefiting a diverse range of demographics, from farmers and students to women and historical activists in the state.
The outcome of the Telangana elections holds paramount significance for the Congress, especially as the country approaches the 2024 Lok Sabha elections. A victory in both Telangana and Karnataka would significantly strengthen the party’s presence in the southern regions, providing a substantial boost ahead of the national elections.
