Telangana parties gearing up for Munugode bypoll
Telangana parties gearing up for Munugode bypoll

Hyderabad, Oct 4 (TIWN) With the announcement of schedule for by-election to Munugode Assembly seat, top leaders of all the three major political players in Telangana went into a huddle to finalise their poll strategy.

As the outcome of the bypoll is likely to give a psychological advantage to the winner in the run up to the big battle, ruling Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) and both major opposition Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Congress will be pulling all stops to capture Munugode.  Since the vacancy arose due to the defeat of sitting MLA of Congress party who switched loyalties to the BJP, both the parties will be desperate for a victory. As the BJP is upbeat after wresting two Assembly seats from the TRS in as many years, the ruling party will also go all out to stop the saffron surge.  Komatireddy Rajagopal Reddy, who resigned as MLA and also quit the Congress party two months ago, joined the BJP on August 21 in the presence of Union Home Minister Amit Shah at a public meeting in Munugode. 

During his speech at the public meeting, Amit Shah had appealed to the people of the Assembly constituency elect Rajagopal Reddy and remarked that after his win TRS government will collapse in no time. 

"You elect Reddy in the by-election, I will guarantee that the corrupt government of KCR will collapse in no time," he had said.  The home minister had said it was not merely joining of one leader into the BJP, but it was the beginning of the end of KCR government  Last month, the Congress party announced Palvai Sravanthi as its candidate for the by-election. She is the daughter of former MP Palvai Govardhan Reddy.  The 49-year-old along with her supporters has been reaching out to voters in the villages across the constituency.
