Huzurabad elections heat is soaring high. Of a total 61 candidates who filed for 91 sets of nominations from October 1st to 8th, 19 candidates got rejected and 42 candidates got shortlisted in the scrutiny phase which was completed recently. The serious efforts of Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) and Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in influencing the independent candidates to withdraw the nominations from Huzurabad Assembly election has gone in vain.
On the deadline to withdraw the nominations of candidates on Wednesday, it was found that as many as 30 candidates were still left in the queue. Excluding Congress, TRS and BJP, the remaining 27 candidates are either independent people or from unrecognised parties.
Both the TRS and BJP are worried about the Huzurabad elections as the vote split may happen due to the contesting of independent candidates. Both the TRS and BJP predicting the same situation may happen like the Dubbak bypoll result.
During the Dubbak bypoll result, TRS had lost to BJP with the slightest margin of 1431 votes in November 2020. Where, both the parties felt vote split because of the independent candidates that played a vital role for such a result. However, we have to wait and see how time will unveil the truth.
