HYDERABAD: The attempts of the Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) leadership to make MLC elections unanimous for four more seats failed as independent candidates had refused to withdraw their nominations on Friday, the last date to withdraw nominations.

Out of 12 MLC seats under local bodies’ quota going for polls on December 10, the TRS has already bagged six seats unanimously after independents withdrew their nominations.

 

The remaining six seats will go for polls on December 10 where the TRS is facing Congress in two seats and independents in four other seats.

Ministers and TRS MLAs made desperate bids on Thursday to convince independents to withdraw their nominations for one seat each in Adilabad, Nalgonda districts and two seats in Karimnagar districts.

The TRS was hopeful of making the election in these four seats unanimous as no major party had fielded their candidates and only independents remained in the fray. The TRS expected to fight election only in two seats in Khammam and Medak districts where Congress candidates are contesting.

 

But with independents deciding to contest the polls in Adilabad, Nalgonda and Karimnagar districts, the TRS is gearing up to face the election on December 10.

The TRS is confident of winning all the six seats comfortably as over 90 per cent of the elected representatives of local bodies (urban and rural), who are eligible to vote in these elections, belong to the TRS.

The ministers and MLAs already shifted their elected representatives to camps in Hyderabad and other states to prevent poaching by rival candidates. They will be brought back from camps on December 10, the day of polling.

 

The TRS has fielded Dande Vithal in Adilabad, T. Bhanu Prasad Rao and L. Ramana in Karimnagar district, K. Yadava Reddy in Medak, Tata Madhu in Khammam and M.C. Koti Reddy in Nalgonda district.

The Congress has fielded Nirmala Jagga Reddy in Medak and Rayala Nageshwar Rao in Khammam.

Six TRS candidates, namely Kalvakuntla Kavitha (Nizamabad), Patnam Mahender Reddy and Shambipur Raju (Rangareddy), K. Damodar Reddy and Kasireddy Narayan Reddy (Mahbubnagar) and Pochampally Srinivas Reddy (Warangal) have already been elected unanimously after independents withdrew their nominations.
