The Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) was upbeat on Sunday following an excellent show by the candidates it had supported in the second phase of the panchayat election in the district.

Party-supported candidates bagged nearly 80 sarpanch posts including the one at Mavala gram panchayat in Adilabad mandal.

Party workers organised a victory rally from Mavala gram panchayat to Telangana Talli statue where leaders like MLA Jogu Ramanna and district president Loka Bhuma Reddy thanked the voters. They said by voting for TRS-supported candidates, the voters had demonstrated the prevalence of Telangana sentiment in the area.

TRS-backed candidates also won from as many as 14 of the 20 wards in Mavala.
