Hyderabad, May 16 (IANS) After its poor showing in the Lok Sabha and Andhra Pradesh assembly polls, Telugu Desam Party (TDP) president N. Chandrababu Naidu Saturday said that his party would analyse the election results.
The TDP-led four-party Grand Alliance suffered defeat in both the assembly and Lok Sabha elections.

The alliance won 108 seats in the 294-member state assembly and bagged eight out of the state’s 42 Lok Sabha seats. TDP won 93 assembly and six Lok Sabha seats on its own.

Naidu told reporters that the results were below his expectations and the party would begin district-wise analysis of the results.

“We need to analyse the results in detail because the Congress has won more Lok Sabha seats as compared to assembly seats. The UPA has bagged more seats than its own expectations in several states,” he said.

Naidu said the TDP would work as a “responsible opposition party”. “We will play the role of an effective opposition to serve the people,” he said.
