Politics are heating up in Telangana once again with the nearing of GHMC elections in Hyderabad, besides municipal corporation elections for Warangal and Khammam.
GHMC elections are expected to be held in January/February 2021 and Warangal, Khammam corporation polls in March/ April 2021.
The main Opposition Congress has started the exercise for selecting candidates for these elections well in advance to give a tough fight to TRS this time.
Last time, Congress lost these elections to ruling TRS miserably and Congress leaders feel that due to delay in selection of candidates and wrong selection of candidates it lost elections to TRS.
Congress is planning to give 50 tickets to candidates of Semandhra regions who settled in Hyderabad this time. Congress hopes that the huge Seemandhra population residing in Hyderabad will vote for Congress if it gives seats to Seemandhra candidates.
gress leaders say last time TRS gave 30 tickets to Seemandhra candidates in GHMC 2016 polls which helped it to win the polls with a good majority.
The GHMC has 150 seats and Congress plans to give tickets to 50 Seemandhra candidates.
It remains to be seen whether Congress will succeed with this strategy in GHMC polls 2021 or not.
