Munugode by-election gives sleepless nights to Opposition parties.


While the ruling TRS party cadre seems jubilant over the ensuing by-election, the leaders and cadre of Opposition BJP and Congress seem to be incurious.

The BJP does not have a ground-level base and is counting on the strengths of its candidate Mr Rajagopal Reddy and Mr Modi’s charisma. Though the BJP leaders are saying that they are a strong force to reckon with and are sure to win, the reality seems to be different.

They are trying to put up a show inviting Union Home Minister Mr Amit Shah to the proposed public meeting at Chautuppal on August 21 to woo the maximum voters.

As usual, the Congress party remains a divided house. The latest controversy is that senior leader and former minister Mr K Venkat Reddy sulked over the remarks made by some leaders at a recent meeting. He is angry with TPCC chief Mr A Revanth Reddy who is accused of not keeping Mr Venkat Reddy informed about the party developments. He is enraged at admitting Mr Ch Sudhakar of Inti Party who reportedly worked to defeat Mr Venkat Reddy in the last elections.

The Congress party is also bogged down by the several candidates staking their claim for ticket for Munugode Assembly by-election. The discontent among candidates may pose danger to the prospects of the party.

Meanwhile, the ruling TRS party leaders and workers are seen all over the constituency organising small public meetings and party meetings. They are more visible running around like a busy bee cheering the public and putting up a spectacular show sporting huge pink flags.

The TRS is planning to organise a massive public meeting on August 20, which would be addressed by the party president and chief minister Mr K Chandrasekhar Rao marking the official launching of the party campaign in Munugode.
