CM KCR votes, says tide in TRS favour

HYDERABAD: After casting his vote at his native village Chintamadaka, president and chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao () on Friday said the tide was in favour of the government. “We will come back with a huge majority,” he said answering questions from the media.

Chandrasekhar Rao has always voted in Chintamadaka village in where he was born and grew up. KCR flew in a helicopter from his farm house in Erravelli in his Gajwel assembly constituency close by and cast his vote along with his wife Shobha. They were accompanied by irrigation minister T Harish Rao into the polling station. Chintamadaka village comes under Siddipet assembly constituency from where his nephew Harish Rao is seeking a re-election.

A cheerful KCR answered questions from the media. “We will win with a huge majority. When the exit polls come out in the evening you will yourself know. There is a pro-government wave,” he said. KCR also said the voter turnout in Hyderabad was also very good. “Even the aged have come out to vote and are standing in lines to vote,” he said.

KCR, however, did not go into the village to talk to the villagers. “I promised them that I would come back in 15 days to spend time with them,” he said.

In the 2014 elections, the TRS formed the government after bifurcation of the state winning 63 seats. KCR has expressed the confidence at his election rallies and public meetings that this time, the party may even win 100 seats.
