The deadline for nominations withdrawal for GHMC elections is complete a short while ago. It was a very anxious time for all the parties as they tried their level best to convince the rebel candidates out of fray.
While there are 150 divisions in total, there are 888 nominations from TRS, 698 from Congress, 456 from BJP and 89 from MIM. However there were only 454 candidates who withdrew from the fray.
As of now, there is no data about which party rebels withdrew more but going by the statistics above, all the parties will have rebels headache. All the parties handed over the B-forms to their respective candidates and the rebel candidates will have to continue as independents.
