Huzurabad & Badvel- Contrasting Polling TrendsThe polling for the By-elections to three Lok Sabha segments and 29 assembly segments across the country are happening today. Badvel from Andhra Pradesh and Huzurabad from Telangana are also voting for the By-election. But the polling trends are contrasting in both the segments.

Huzurabad By-election is taken prestigiously by the Ruling and Opposition parties and are mobilizing voters in high numbers. The Voter turnout in the Assembly Elections is 84.4% and in it can be easily over 90% this time.

The voters enthusiasm is relatively less in Badvel where the main Opposition party, Telugu Desam did not field its candidate. BJP is the only main party is fray but given that it can not make much difference to the result, voters are not so enthusiastic.

With no proper Opposition, the ruling party is trying to mobilize voters to register a huge majority.
