HYDERABAD: People in Munugode Assembly constituency are slowly re-adjusting to normal life, following the hectic weeks of campaigning for the November 3 byelection, For almost two months, all normal activities related to agriculture, handloom, construction and other petty works were halted as most of the people were engaged in intensified campaigns.

BJP and Congress leaders made an exit from Munugode almost immediately after the November 3 voting but TRS cadre were busy till the newly elected MLA Koosukuntla Prabhakar Reddy took his oath on Thursday.  

Lingam, a paramedical worker, said that they had a great experience during the bypoll as they were treated to lavish parties for over one month. There was no time to participate in any other work.

TRS, BJP and Congress leaders carried out intensified poll campaigns and provided facilities to the voters in one way or the other. There was a heavy demand for rented houses and function halls for the last two months. Now they are all empty. Agriculture and handloom workers resumed their work as the election related daily income has come to a halt.

R. Srinivas Reddy, owner of a hotel at Choutuppal, said that during the campaign they were unable to cater to the demand of customers.

"Our daily business during the peak election campaign touched `two lakh.  Now it has come down Rs 50,000. To cater to the demand, we engaged more workers and provided parking facilities. We are unable to digest the normal situation in the post-election period", he said.
