After high octane campaign, all set for Hyderabad civil polls

Nov 30, 2020 22:59 IST

Elaborate arrangements are in place as the stage is set for the elections to Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation on Tuesday. Over 74 lakh voters will decide the political fortunes of 1,122 candidates in 150 divisions in one of the most bitterly-fought polls for any municipal body in recent times. The election authorities are conducting the polls through postal ballots instead of Electronic Voting Machines. Wearing of face mask is mandatory for voters coming to polling stations. Authorities have made it clear that those not wearing masks will not be allowed into the polling station. Ruling Telangana Rashtra Samithi is looking to retain power in the municipal body while upbeat over its victory in Dubbak Assembly by-election, the BJP is making a determined bid to wrest power. While TRS, BJP and Congress are contesting all the seats, MIM has fielded candidates in 51 divisions. The TRS had won 99 seats in 2016 elections while MIM had finished second with 44 seats. The BJP could win only four seats then.
