TS set for polls in November, not in December

The Telangana State is set to see next polls in November, not in December along with the four northern States as being expected by many. The Election Commission had sent its team to the State to study the preparedness of the State to go for early polls.

Telangana chief minister and TRS chief Chandrasekhar Rao had initially planned to go for elections along with Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh and Mizoram States. After dissolving the State Assembly, KCR is going at a greater speed campaigning for the party anticipating that the State would go for polls in December. But, things are moving even at a greater speed for him with the Election Commission which is working at further advancing the polls.

Deputy Election Commissioner Umesh Sinha and his team is currently camping in Hyderabad working out the modalities to hold the elections in November. The team had met chief secretary S K Joshi, DGP Mahender Reddy and home secretary Rajiv Triwedi and had initial talks over the administration’s preparedness.

Talks were held on the availability of the EVMs, the security forces, the fresh voter’s list, and other issues. The voters of the seven mandals that were merged with Andhra Pradesh too is a serious issue before the election commission. The seven mandals were drafted from Bhadrachalam, Pinapaka and Aswaraopet Assembly constituencies and were merged with Andhra Pradesh. These voters are now to be removed from the list of these three constituencies, which the election commission is looking at.

The election commission plans to publish the final list of voters on October 8. It is only after this, the election commission wants to make its next move to go for the elections. The speed at which the election commission is working looks favourable to the ruling TRS, as the Opposition parties are yet to gear up.
