As campaigning came to an end in Telangana on Wednesday, battle lines are drawn for the first full-fledged assembly election in India's youngest state with the ruling TRS and Congress-led People's Front locked in a tough fight.

The high-octane campaign for the December 7 assembly polls saw political heavy weights like Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Congress chief Rahul Gandhi and TRS president and chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao and TDP supremo N Chandrababu Naidu criss-crossing the state addressing rallies.

Congress formed the "people's Front" with TDP, CPI and M Kodandaram-led Telangana Jana Samithi (TJS), while the TRS and BJP are going it alone. CPI(M)-led Bahujan Left Front is also in the fray.

Highlighting his government's achievements, KCR addressed about 90 meetings, seeking a second term for the TRS. Naidu also participated extensively in roadshows and meetings.
