Huge victory for BJP in Telangana
Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) election results declared on December 4 witnessed huge surge in BJP’s tally, while the ruling TRS witnessed a sharp decline in its performance. The BJP went up from 4 seats in 2016 to 48 seats in 2020. The TRS declined from 99 to 55 seats. The Congress Party somehow managed to win only two seats. Asaduddin Owaisi’s AIMIM retained 44 seats. This big gain for BJP is being seen as BJP emerging as a big force in Telangana.
The election was held on 150 seats of GHMC. However, none of the parties crossed the simple majority mark of 76 out of 150 seats.
BJP National President Shri Jagat Prakash Nadda expressed gratitude to people of Hyderabad for their faith & support. He said in a tweet “GHMC results show rejection of Dynastic,Corrupt & Appeasement politics. I Congratulate State President @bandisajay & hardworking @BJP4Telangana Karyakartas for their spirited efforts that led to great success. Gratitude to people of Hyderabad for their faith & support. Historic result for BJP in Hyderabad GHMC elections shows that people of the country supports only & only development agenda. This result reflects people’s unequivocal support to Hon PM Shri @narendramodi ji’s development & governance model.”

Congratulations to Shri @JPNadda ji and Shri @bandisanjay_bjp for BJP’s astounding performance in GHMC. I applaud the hard work of our karyakartas of @BJP4Telangana.”
BJP National General Secretary (Organization) Shri BL Santhosh in his tweet said, “Inspite of the brute use of corrupt money, absolute abuse of power by @trspartyonline, @BJP4Telangana is only 8456 votes less in #GHMC elections . That makes 48 seat win more sweeter . We have arrived . Congratulations @bandisanjay_bjp @kishanreddybjp”
Talangana BJP President Shri Bandi Sanjay Kumar reacting on the results said, “The BJP’s win in the November 10 Dubbaka by-election was the defeat of T Harish Rao, the nephew of Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao. The GHMC polls have dealt a bigger defeat to K T Rama Rao, the son of the CM (he led the TRS campaign).”

They have made it clear what the results of the Telangana assembly elections (2023) will be. I can say with confidence that they have decided to bid farewell to the corrupt KCR government.”
