The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) was leading in three divisions and its alliance partner Telugu Desam Party (TDP) was ahead in two divisions.

The Congress, which is the main opposition party in Telangana, won one seat but was not leading in any other division.

The counting of votes polled in Tuesday’s elections began at 3 p.m. but the results and trends were announced after 5 p.m. when repolling in one division concluded.

Counting of votes polled in 149 divisions began at 24 places in twin cities of Hyderabad and Secunderabad.
