TRS bags Warangal, Khammam corporations

Hyderabad, March 9 (IANS) Extending its string of victories further, Telangana’s ruling TRS on Wednesday registered a clean sweep in the elections to Warangal and Khammam municipal corporations and one nagar panchayat in the state.

In Warangal, the second biggest city in the state after Hyderabad, the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) won 44 seats in 58-member municipal corporation. Congress, the main opposition party, won four seats. Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Communist Party of India (Marxist) got a seat each. Eight independent candidates were also elected.

The ruling party secured a clear majority by winning 34 seats in 50-member Khammam municipal corporation. Congress won two seats. Communist Party of India (CPI), CPI-M and YSR Congress Party bagged two seats each.

The Telugu Desam Party (TDP) drew a blank in both the corporations, adding to the party’s woes in the state.

TRS had a clean sweep in Achampet nagar panchayat in Mahabubnagar district. It won all 20 seats, completely eliminating the opposition.

The ruling party’s victory in these elections came close on the heels of its massive win in Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) and the win in by-election to Narayankhed assembly seat with a huge majority last month.

Celebrations erupted in the TRS camp in Warangal, Khammam and Achampet. Chief Minister and TRS president K. Chandrasekhar Rao said the results show people’s wholehearted support to the welfare and development programmes of the TRS government.
