In an amazing feat of achievement, Huzurnagar constituency recorded a whopping 84 percent plus voter turnout on Monday. The assembly went to the bye-polls on October 21. Official sources reported over 84.15 percent voting up to 5 PM when the polling ended.

As per the official figures, more than 2.36 lakh voters were eligible to take part in the by-poll. The votes will be counted on October 24. Huzurnagar constituency saw the contest between 28 candidates. Among these candidates, major players were from Congress, Bhartiya Janta Party, Telugu Rashtriya Samiti, and Telugu Desam Party.

Huzrunagar by-poll was necessitated because of the resignation by the incumbent leader and Congress president N Uttam Kumar Reddy. He was elected to the Lok Saha seat in the latest general elections. N Uttam Kumar Reddy won from the Nalgonda Lok Sabha constituency in 2019 elections.

Congress party fielded the wife of N Uttam Kumar Reddy, N Padmavati, a former MLA. TRS again fielded its candidate S Saidi Reddy. On the other side, TDP has selected to field Chava Kiranmai (women candidate) from the Huzurnagar seat. From the saffron party’s side, Dr. Kota Rama Rao has been given the chance to fight the elections on Huzurnagar’s seat.

TIW’s TAKE-

The presence of various major regional players like TDP and TRS certainly made this by-poll a multi-faceted competition. On one side, where Congress party is hoping to regain its home here, other parties are looking to grab the power in this region to increase their stronghold in the state. TRS party is seeing this by-poll as a way to revive itself in the state.

A win for Congress will be a great way for the grand old party as it seems to aim for replacing the ruling TRS in the future. Presently, TRS enjoys a comfortable majority in the assembly having a strength of 100 in the 120-member House of the state.
