Seems like the TRS chief KCR is now on damage control mode. With the Election Commission (EC) releasing the schedule for conducting the Graduate MLC elections in Hyderabad-Rangareddy-Mahbubnagar and Warangal-Khammam-Nalgonda constituencies, the political barometer in the state peaked high.
While the polls are scheduled to take place on March 14th, the state set a record with 164 candidates contesting for the two graduate constitutes. Followed by the unexpected humiliation in the Dubbaka bye-election and the GHMC election, winning has become crucial for the ruling TRS party not only in MLC polls but also Nagarjunsagar bye-election.
In a recent development, Pragati Bhavan corridors are rife with speculations that the Chief Minister himself will enter the scene to boost the morale of candidates, voters and party cadre. It is learnt that KCR is planning to participate in the election campaign.
However, a lot of constraints like no public meetings, not being available for door-to-door campaigning came as hurdles on KCR’s way. For which team KCR apparently came with a masterplan of the supremo directly calling the voters to pitch the welfare scheme taken up so far. Over which, the TRS cadre is into collecting data necessary for this masterplan.
