The GHMC elections have taken yet another interesting turn with the former Congress minister Marri Sashidhar Reddy approaching the Election Commission requesting its intervention in KCR's decision to conduct the polls during the Sankranthi holidays.
The TRS government submitted an affidavit to the High Court stating that all the election process would be completed by 31st January. This move is being seen as KCR's ploy to check the opposition Congress and the TDP-BJP alliance in the polls.
The senior leader stated that KCR is scared of Seemandhra people in the Greater Hyderabad region who constitute 35% of the voters. KCR is planning to conduct the polls when most of the Seemandhra people will leave for their native places during the Sankranthi holidays.
Sashidhar Reddy further said that KCR carried out the division of wards in the Greater Hyderabad region at his will and that the CM should stop the wards division until EC's directives in the deletion of voters names in the electoral. He even demanded to increase the wards as per the population.
