The Telugu Desam Party (TDP) on Tuesday said that the Congress-led alliance needs to analyse and introspect on its ‘failure’ in the Telangana Assembly elections. "We have to analyse the factors that contributed to the success of TRS and failure of our alliance," said TDP leader Ravula Chandrasekhar Reddy, senior leader of TDP, led by Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister N Chandrababu Naidu.

"We were expecting to get more number of seats. The results are not to our expectations," news agency PTI quoted Reddy as sayinng.

The alliance which also comprised the Telangana Jana Samithi and the Communist Party of India, did not fare well, and "we have to analyse and introspect where it went wrong, and we have to work together", he said.

"We have to respect people's verdict", Reddy said, adding the alliance would now strive hard to see to it that the TRS government implements the "tall promises" made by the K Chandrasekhar Rao-led party.
