The Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) elections threw up a fractured verdict in the 150-member council, with none of the political parties crossing the half-figure mark.

The ruling Congress in Andhra Pradesh suffered a setback by winning just 52 seats, though it contested all the 150 divisions, while the main Opposition Telugu Desam staged a comeback by bagging 45 divisions out of the 141 it contested. The MIM bastions in the old city remained impregnable with the party bagging 43 divisions out of the 70 it contested.

The Bharatiya Janata Party, which spared no effort to regain its lost glory, had to satisfy itself with a tally of five seats, though it put up candidates in 137 divisions.
