Telangana TDP had initially demanded 35 out of 119 Seats as part of the seat-sharing between parties of Mahakutami. The strategy has been modified now by TDP Leadership and only the seats in which it could win has been sought.
In Hyderabad, TDP is keen to contest only in 2 to 3 Constituencies (Kukatpally, Uppal, Jubilee Hills/Serilingampally).
TDP choose the constituencies it should be contesting based on three kinds of surveys. Constituencies such as Makkal, Narsampet, Kodada and Sathupally are in the wish list of Telugu Desam.
Congress Party is happy to see TDP demand only the seats in which it have bright chances of winning instead of contesting in 35 seats. At the same time, Mahakutami Leaders have been discussing what if two parties have equal chances of winning in any constituency.
