Meanwhile, TDP chief and Andhra CM Chandrababu Naidu said that he respects the mandate of the people of Telangana. 

The Telugu Desam Party (TDP) said Tuesday the Congresss-led alliance, of which it is a part, needs to analyse and introspect on the grouping's "failure" in the Telangana Assembly elections.

"We have to analyse the factors that contributed to the success of TRS and failure of our alliance," said Ravula Chandrasekhar Reddy, senior leader of TDP, led by Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu.

"We were expecting to get more number of seats. The results are not to our expectations," Reddy told PTI.

The alliance which also comprised the Telangana Jana Samithi and the Communist Party of India, did not fare well, and "we have to analyse and introspect where it went wrong, and we have to work together", he said.

"We have to respect people's verdict", Reddy said, adding the alliance would now strive hard to see to it that the TRS government implements the "tall promises" made by the K Chandrasekhar Rao-led party. 

Meanwhile, TDP chief and Andhra CM Chandrababu Naidu said that he respects the mandate of the people of Telangana. 

"TDP respects the mandate of people of Telangana. Congratulations to Shri K. Chandrasekhar Rao. Also, best wishes to all the newly elected public representatives of 5 states," Naidu said.

"People recognize that BJP has done nothing in last 5 yrs and moving towards alternative. People are with us in our fight against BJP. These 5 states results will help form a strong alternative to the BJP," he added. 

According to the official Election Commission data, KC Rao's Telangana Rashtra Samiti leads on around 80 seats.
