Vastavam web: Former MP and Andhra Octopus Lagadapati Rajagopal on Tuesday predicted that the Congress led Peoples Front has a clear edge over the rival Telangana Rashtra Samithi. Addressing the media, he said that the Peoples Front could win majority of the seats in four districts, TRS would win more number of seats in three districts and the fight is neck to neck in two districts. He said that in Hyderabad MIM would get more seats and the TRS, Congress and BJP would share the rest.

He said that the result depends on the poll percentage and said that he would reveal the factors that have influenced the electorate on December 7, after the end of the polling. He said that he has been revealing the reports of the survey since entire nation has been looking at Telangana. He said that early polls have raised the interest among the voters. He said that TRS would win more number of seats in old Warangal, Nizamabad and Medak. The rivals are engaged in close contest in old Mahabubnagar and Karimnagar districts. Congress led front would get more seats in old Khammam, Adilabad, Nalgonda and Ranga Reddy districts.

Rajagopal said the outcome of the polls depends mostly on the poll percentage. The percentage of polling was 68.5 per cent in the 2014 election. If the poll percentage raises above that, it could be understood that anti establishment wave has been working as under current. If the percentage is less than that it may lead to hung Assembly.
