After more than a year, the election season is back in Telangana again. The state is up for facing a series of elections in the next six months.
There are going to be by-elections for the MLC elections under Nizamabad local bodies’ constituency in the second week of October, in which Telangana Rashtra Samithi leader and former Nizamabad MP Kalvakuntla Kavitha is most likely to emerge winner.
It will be followed by another by-election to Dubbak assembly seat and then, to elections to MLC elections to two graduates’ constituencies in the state.
However, the major battle will be fought in Hyderabad with the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) elections expected in January next.
While the ruling TRS has already begun the exercise well in advance to prepare the poll strategy to win all these elections, the Telangana Congress which has got its new in-charge from the AICC Manickam Tagore recently, is also getting ready to face the elections. Only the BJP is yet to start its preparations.
Being a ruling party, the TRS leadership has been making all efforts to pamper the voters in all the areas which are going to polls.
In Nizamabad MLC polls, Kavitha has already done enough home work and the party leaders have done first round of campaigning.
In Dubbak, KCR’s nephew Harish Rao has prepared the ground for the victory of the TRS and is making all out efforts to erase whatever little negative factor that is there in the constituency.
In Greater Hyderabad, TRS working president and IT minister K T Rama Rao along with city minister Talasani Srinivas Yadav and others have already commenced consolidating the forces. KTR is constantly monitoring the election preparations for GHMC.
The TRS leaders including ministers and MLAs are holding Assembly constituency-wise meetings for the past couple of days. They have been creating awareness among the graduates to enrol themselves as voters soon after the enrolment begins on October 1.
At least four surveys conducted by TRS predicted that the Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) would win no less than 100 seats (divisions) in the GHMC elections which are likely to be held in January 2021.
