Telangana Election 2023: The much-anticipated results of the 2023 assembly elections in Telangana, India’s youngest state, will be released this Sunday. Early trends should become clear in the morning, when the counting of votes starts at 8 a.m.
Due to the order of counting, starting with the mail-in votes and then moving on to the Electronic Voting Machines (EVMs), the first trends may change quickly.
Thursday, elections were held in 119 districts, and about 23 million people showed up to vote. As of 11 p.m., 70.60% of people in the state had cast their ballots. With 83.34% of voters, Jangaon had the biggest turnout. Narasampet came in second with 83%, and Dubbak came in third with 82.75%. On the other hand, only 39.97% of people in Hyderabad actually cast their ballots.
2,290 candidates are running for office, including chief minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao, who is running for posts in both Kamareddy and Gajwel. His son, minister K T Rama Rao, ran from Siricilla, and A Revanth Reddy, leader of the Telangana Congress, tried to win from Kamareddy and Kodangal. The BJP’s Eatala Rajender ran for office in Gajwel and Huzurabad, and the party’s Bandi Sanjay Kumar ran for office in Karimnagar.
The Bharat Rashtra Samiti (then called the Telangana Rashtra Samiti) won 88 of the 119 seats in the 2018 elections, making it the clear winner. The Congress gained 19 seats, the AIMIM gained 7, and the BJP gained 1.
What did the exit polls say?
Initially, results from different exit polls for the Telangana assembly elections suggested that KCR might not be able to rule the state for much longer. Out of these, the India TV-CNX exit poll said that the BRS would win about 70 seats and return to power.
India Today-Axis’s exit poll My India hints at a big change by saying that KCR’s BRS might get 34 to 44 seats and the Congress might get 63 to 73 seats, giving them a majority. The Bharatiya Janata Party might get more seats than it did in 2018, when it was expected to get 4–8 seats. Asaduddin Owaisi’s AIMIM was expected to get 5–8 seats.
In terms of how the votes were split, the exit polls showed that the Congress could get 42% of the votes, while the ruling BRS was expected to get 33%. The BJP may get about 14% of the votes, while the AIMIM could only get about 8%.
