In an unexpected shock to the ruling TRS and opposition BJP which already launched the poll campaign in full swing in Huzurabad, the Election Commission of India (ECI) clarified that the by-poll will be held only after Dasara.
In the line of the announcement, the by-poll is likely to be held in November or December. The Ec also stayed the polls that are scheduled to be held in Badvel Assembly seat in Andhra Pradesh. On this note, EC clarified that the decision was taken after holding a series of talks with the Chief Secretaries of Telangana and Andhra Pradesh who requested to hold elections after the flood situation and festive season.
EC, on the other hand, announced the schedule for a few segments in West Bengal and other states.
