Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) President K Chandrasekhar Rao will take oath as the Chief Minister of Telangana on Thursday, sources told news agency ANI.
The TRS cruised to a landslide victory in the Telangana Assembly Elections on Tuesday, winning 88 out of the 119-member assembly.
Rao, fondly known as KCR won from Gajwel constituency by over 50,000 votes. Meanwhile, KCR's son, KT Rama Rao won from Sircilla with a margin of 89,909 votes.
The Praja Kutami (Peoples Front), a 4-party opposition alliance led by the Congress that included Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu's TDP, CPI and the newly formed Telangana Jana Samiti, cut a sorry figure together winning 21 seats.
The Congress had just 19 seats in its kitty, two less that what it won in the last polls, while the TDP could win only two against its tally of 15 seats in 2014. The two other coalition partners failed to open their account.
