Hyderabad: The results of the urban local body polls in Telangana showed the people’s endorsement of the welfare and development programmes carried out by the state government under Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao’s leadership, TRS working president K T Rama Rao said on Saturday.

“The people of Telangana have once again demonstrated that they stand by TRS, whatever is the election. They have rejected the false campaign of opposition parties in the municipal polls,” Rao, the state Municipal Administration Minister and son of the Chief Minister said in a statement.

The ruling Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) has notched a triumphant victory in the elections to the local urban bodies in the state. It bagged more than 100 of the 120 municipalities and captured eight of the nine municipal corporations for which the counting was on Saturday. It is poised to win the Karimnagar Municipal Corporation, the counting for which will be on January 27.

Rama Rao, who oversaw the partys preparation for the municipal polls, said the ‘victory’ became possible due to the efforts of the 60 lakh members of TRS.

He also appreciated the efforts of the partys “social media soldiers” for exposing the allegedly false campaign of opposition parties and for spreading awareness about the good work of the TRS government.

Observing that there are no elections for the next four years, he said TRS would re-dedicate itself to peoples welfare.

Polling for 120 municipalities and nine corporations was held amid tight security on January 22.

The TRS bagged all the 32 Zilla Parishads in the rural local body elections held last year and the party was hopeful of continuing its impressive performance in the municipal polls, TRS sources had said here on Friday.
