The Congress is forming the government in Telangana after it won 64 seats in the 119-member state Assembly. The K Chandrashekhar Rao-led Bharat Rashtra Samithi faced a crushing defeat and won only 39 seats. Even before the counting concluded on December 3, KCR sent his resignation to the governor.
Soon afterwards, a delegation of Congress leaders met Telangana Governor Tamilisai Soundararajan to claim the formation of a government in the state.
