Hyderabad: Continuing its winning streak, the ruling Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) today wrested the Narayankhed Assembly seat in Medak district from Congress with its candidate Bhupal Reddy winning the seat by a margin of 53,625 votes.

Congress candidate P Sanjeeva Reddy polled 39,451 votes while M Vijaypal Reddy of TDP got 14,787 votes in the constituency, considered a Congress bastion.

The by-poll was necessitated following the death of Sanjeeva Reddy's father P Kishta Reddy.


The result came as a further boost to the TRS, led by Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao, as the party had scored a landslide win in the recent Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation polls, bagging 99 seats of the 150-member civic body.

It had also won the Warangala Lok Sabha by-poll with a massive margin.

The TRS candidate maintained his lead from the first round of counting till the last.
