KCR set to sweep Telangana polls

In Telangana, chief minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao looks set to sweep the December 7 state poll, with 75 per cent voters found to be backing his TRS.

According to the Political Stock Exchange (PSE) survey conducted by India Today, what’s helping KCR in the state is a strong pro-incumbency wave, the poll showed. The chief minister has been found to be leading among all segments of population.

Besides, the CM’s social-welfare schemes are serving as a bonus for KCR. The early dissolution of the state Assembly to advance elections has emerged as a masterstroke by the chief minister.

The recent Congress-TDP alliance, however, doesn’t seem to be delivering results, the survey suggested. Asaduddin Owaisi’s AIMIM seems to be marring Congress fortunes in Hyderabad area. The Telangana PSE survey was conducted across 17 parliamentary constituencies via telephonic interviews, with a sample size of 6,877.
