The ruling Telangana Rashtra Samiti is resorting to all kinds of back door techniques to win MLC elections. Even though the party had strength to win only four MLC seats, it had fielded five candidates ensuring elections.
In order to win the fifth seat, the ruling party is trying all the tricks in the trade. The party had ensured that nominated MLCs will also have voting rights in the elections. Usually nominated MLCs will not have voting rights in MLC elections of MLAs quota.
The ruling party is also in talks with Independent MLA, Dhonthi Madhava Reddy for his support. He is currently supporting Congress. TRS is also holding back room talks with MLAs of Congress and TDP to defect in the last minute and vote for TRS candidates.
