However, the survey predicted that Congress’s failure to implement the guarantees in Karnataka, which they listed out in Telangana could influence the voters.
According to the survey, none can match the popularity of K Chandrashekar Rao, who is the most preferred CM among leaders in Telangana.
For Congress, the survey said that the grand old party has to solve its internal rivalries and arrive at a consensus on state-building to gain the voters’ confidence.
For BJP, the survey pointed out that though the party suffers from group-ism, it still stands a chance to win 4 to 6 seats.
On the whole, Telangana politics, as per the survey, was dominated by KCR led BRS party which would potentially hit the hattrick by coming to power for the third time.
Polling across Telangana is scheduled to take place on November 30 with the state witnessing an intriguing triangular contest between the BRS, Congress, and BJP.
In the previous Assembly elections in 2018, the BRS won 88 of the 119 seats, hogging 47.4 percent of the total vote share. The Congress finished a distant second with 19 seats and a vote share of 28.7 percent.
