New Delhi: India's youngest state, Telangana, to be born on June 2, will vote overwhelmingly in favour of K Chandrasekhara Rao, the man who fronted the movement for the region to be carved out of Andhra Pradesh as a separate state. According to NDTV's exit poll, KCR will get 11 of the 17 parliamentary seats at stake. His party Talangana Rashtra Samithi has refused to ally so far with the Congress, which is forecast to get just three seats.
Chandrababu Naidu, chief of the Telugu Desam Party or TDP, did not openly endorse a Telangana state but will manage two seats here. The decision to turn Telangana into a state is also costing the Congress heavily in Seemandhra, the regions that will form the residuary state of Andhra Pradesh. NDTV's exit poll shows the party not getting a single seat there.
NDTV's exit poll shows Chandrababu Naidu and Jaganmohan Reddy will score nearly equally in Seemandhra, the two regions which will from next month constitute he downsized version of Andhra Pradesh, with Telangana being carved out as India's 29th State. The Congress is likely to be punished by voters for sanctioning the bifurcation of Andhra Pradesh- the poll shows the party will not get a single seat. In the last national election in 2009, it won 21.
Of the 25 parliamentary seats in Seemandhra, Naidu's Telugu Desam Party is expected to get 13, with Jagan’s YSR Congress landing 12 in its first-ever election. The exit polls add that while YSRCP would get 80-100 Assembly seats, TDP would get between 75-95 and others 5-15 seats. Naidu has allied with the BJP for this election and is hoping to be installed as the first Chief Minister of the new Andhra Pradesh state. He was last in power a decade ago. In 2009, he won four seats; this time around, he is likely to get nine more.
