The TRS Party has announced its candidate to compete against BJP Leader Etela Rajender in the Huzurabad by-election. It was known that Etela Rajendra had resigned from TRS and joined the BJP.
Gellu Srinivas Yadav will compete with Etela in Huzurabad by-polls. Mr Yadav is a Telangana separate state movement leader and TRS party’s student wing president. In the constituency, the Yadav community has the highest number of votes.
The Telangana CM KCR has launched the Dalit Bandu scheme to uplift the Dalit community. As per the scheme, each Dalit family will be given Rs.10 lakh. The opposition called it a deliberate attempt to lure Dalit voters in the Huzurabad constituency. Besides, TRS opted for Mr Yadav to get BC votes too in the constituency.
Both TRS and BJP have taken this by-poll for pride. Whoever wins the by-poll holds the fort there. If TRS loses, it is an alarming bell for the KCR government as per the political analysts.
