Out of 17 Lok Sabha seats in the state, TRS won nine parliamentary seats, wherein the BJP won four parliamentary seats, the Congress won three and the All India Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen won one seat.
In 2014, however, TRS had won 11 seats, while BJP had won only 1 seat.
Buoyed by his party's win in the four constituencies in the state, he said "If there is one state which is naturally inclined towards the party, it is Telangana. It has a history of fighting against Nizam's feudalism. After Assembly elections, people realised BJP will provide more stable government at the center and voted accordingly."
Rao also mounted an attack on the Congress and said that it has become weak and incoherent at the national level. "Congress and TRS are alike in terms of policies and ideologies," he added.
