GHMC Polls: TRS Single Largest Party, BJP Makes Big Gains

The GHMC results have been declared on 149 of 150 seats with result in Neredmet division held.

Asaduddin Owaisi-led AIMIM won 44 seats and Congress two seats.

BJP leaders hailed the party’s strong performance in the elections.

Party chief JP Nadda said the “historic result” for BJP in Hyderabad GHMC elections shows people’s unequivocal support towards PM Modi’s development and governance model.

” I want to thank the people of Hyderabad,” Nadda told ANI.

Taking a jibe at TRS, Nadda said that people of Telangana have decided to “say goodbye to the corrupt” Chandrashekar Rao government.
