BJP is trying to establish its foothold in Telangana. This is the first time the party has got a serious chance in South India after Karnataka. So, the party is adamant about making use of this opportunity.
BJP is trying to engineer some by-elections and win them to display the wave in favor of them before the assembly elections. Komatireddy Rajagopal Reddys Manugode is the first in that direction.
On the other side, there are rumors that One MP and two MLAs of the ruling party are also looking to shift to the BJP.
BJP wants by-election in these three seats as well so as to make a big impact on the voters. But then, this gameplan is keenly dependent on the result of Manugode result.
As many as five surveys are out for Manugode, things are not looking bright for BJP. If that happens, we will see the joinings slow down, and even if there are joinings, the by-elections would not happen.
So, Manugode is going to be a risky gamble for BJP.
Meanwhile, Election Commission is yet to announce the date for Manugode By-election. But the parties have already hit the ground in the constituency.
