We are just two days away from the close of the campaign in the crucial Munugode by-election. The By-election got necessitated due to the resignation of Komatireddy Rajagopal Reddy who defected from Congress to the BJP.
Both TRS and BJP are giving their everything to win this election. The recent cash-for-vote episode is an indication of how desperate both parties are.
Internal surveys of both parties are claiming victories.
BJP says it is at least 10,000 votes ahead of TRS in this election. BJP claims it is ahead of TRS in all Mandals except for Narayanpur.
Moreover, the BSP candidate is getting 4% of votes here and these are TRS votes, BJP’s surveys say.
TRS surveys say that are well ahead due to the support of communist parties. Also, they say Congress has supported BJP by fielding weak candidates in Dubbaka and Huzurabad.
But it is not the case now. So, the odds will be in favor of themselves, TRS says.
Palavai Sravanthi is the Congress candidate and there are reports that she has some sympathy among the women voters. If Congress retains its core vote bank, it will be an advantage to TRS.
