"Voted polled in 175 assembly and 25 Lok Sabha constituencies in Seemandhra will be counted Friday."
Hyderabad, May 12 - TDP chief N. Chandrababu Naidu Maonday hailed his party's win in the municipal elections in Seemandhra, terming it as people's victory.

The former Andhra Pradesh chief minister said it was a historic win by the Telugu Desam Party - and thanked urban voters for reposing faith in the party.

Naidu said the Telugu people rejected the corrupt and voted for the TDP to ensure development of Andhra Pradesh.

The TDP bagged five out of seven corporations and 62 out of 93 municipalities, which went to polls in Seemandhra on March 30. The results were announced Monday.

Naidu alleged that people had to face many hardships due to the 10 years of misrule and corruption of the Congress. He said prices of essential commodities increased manifold, burdening the common man.

He said the TDP could not get desired results in Telangana as people believed that Congress carved out the separate state. He, however, said the TDP would continue to work for rebuilding Telangana state.

The TDP could win only six out of 53 municipalities that went to polls in Telangana.

The TDP chief hoped that the party will emerge victorious in the rural local body elections and in assembly and Lok Sabha polls.

The counting of votes polled in last month's elections to zilla parishads and mandal parishads will be taken up Tuesday.

Voted polled in 175 assembly and 25 Lok Sabha constituencies in Seemandhra will be counted Friday.

Seemandhra, comprising Rayalaseema and coastal Andhra regions, will come into being as separate state of Andhra Pradesh on June 2.
