Congress – TDP+BJP combine put up similar show in T assembly vote shares


TRS has taken a 35% vote share in the Telangana assembly arena (Kalvakurti result is yet to be declared), with the total votes amounting to 65 lakhs, 89 thousand and  285 votes. Congress has polled a total of 48 lakhs, 22 thousands and 579 votes, taking the share to 25%. TDP vote share slightly better, compared to Parliament polling, stood at 15% with a total of 28 lakhs, 50 thousands and 817 votes.

BJP has claimed a 7% vote share, much lower than the 10% vote share it commanded in Parliament voting. Total votes polled for BJP were 13 lakhs, 25 thousands and 374 votes. The number is 7 lakhs lower than the votes it has commanded in the parliament polling! TDP, BJP tie up as a whole polled the same percentage of votes, 22% in assembly and Parliament.

MIM has claimed a 7 lakhs, 25 thousands and 395 votes, which make a 4% vote share in the total number. Left has taken a dismal 2% vote share, numbering 4 lakhs, 51 thousands and 109 votes. The “Others” have played a big role in deciding victories at few places, taking 12% vote share and 24 lakhs 08 thousand and 849 votes. The NOTA was punched one lakh, 49 thousand 550 times in the assembly polling, measuring about 1%.

The vote shares show that if Congress had tied up with MIM, its vote and seat share could have gone up by about 5%-6% resulting in 10-15 seats more. Still the TRS sweep could have been hardly prevented. But the TDP presence could have been greatly limited in Telangana.
