K T Rama Rao, TRS working president and IT and Industries Minister on Tuesday said that the party accepts the verdict of the people in favour of the BJP in the Dubbak by-election.
The Bharatiya Janata Party candidate M Raghunandan Rao has won the seat after a tough fight from TRS in Dubbak assembly by-poll with a razor-thin margin of 1000 plus votes.
There were some technical issues in four EVM‘s, hence counting of votes was taken up. The victory of the BJP candidate has not yet been declared officially.
As expected right from the beginning, it was very clear that it would be a close call between the two parties. Both the parties ran neck to neck in the 23-round counting process.
The TRS nominee S Sujatha trailed behind with a slender margin, but gained subsequently. However, in the last three or four rounds Raghunandan Rao established a lead.
Meanwhile, TRS working president and IT and Industries Minister K T Rama Rao on Tuesday said that the party accepts the verdict of the people in favour of the BJP in the Dubbak by-election.
Rama Rao said at a brief press conference at Telangana Bhavan, the party headquarters here that analysis of the reasons for the party’s failure would be done with corrective measures.
He also added that they had emerged victorious in several elections and by-elections in the past six years. He said that the party doesn’t get overwhelmed when they win or get disillusioned when they lose.
Stating that the TRS government will continue with its welfare and developmental programmers with renewed vigor, the party working president said the aim of any party contesting elections is to win.
“We also did the same, but the public sentiment was in favor of BJP. The Dubbak verdict should also serve as an eye-opener for us,” he said.
