If not for Seemandhra settlers in Hyderabad, the ruling TRS in Telangana would have been wiped out in GHMC elections results announced on Friday, December 4, 2020.
During Telangana statehood agitation TRS leaders KCR, KTR, Harish Rao, Kavitha used to abuse Seemandhra people residing in Hyderabad or elsewhere in Telangana.
TRS leaders used to threaten Seemandhra peple of sending them from Hyderabad to Andhra.
Telangana employees leader Srinivas Goud who became minister now in KCR cabinet even warned of setting up a war room in TRS headquarters to identify Seemandhra employees working in Hyderabad or other districts in Telangana and send them back to Andhra.
Despite all this, Seemandhra people supported TRS in GHMC polls.
If TRS could win 55 seats in GHMC today, it is mostly because of Seemandhra voters.
Otherwise, TRS would have suffered even more shocking defeat at the hands of TRS and would have come down to No.2 position in GHMC after BJP.
Seemandhra voters who are a majority in Sherilingampally, Kukatpally, Qutbullapur, Jubilee Hills, Secunderabad Assembly constituencies voted for TRS.
Especially Seemandhra voters in Sherilingampally, Kukatpally, Qutbullapur Assembly constituencies voted in favour of TRS due to which TRS could win 23 out of 26 GHMC wards located in these three constituencies.
KCR & Co should be thankful to Seemandhra voters for saving TRS from humiliating defeat at the hands of TRS and for making TRS the single largest party in GHMC elections and saving their face.
