TRS sweeps Telangana Council polls

NEW DELHI: The ruling Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) made a clean sweep in the biennial elections to six seats of the Legislative Council from Local Authorities’ constituencies. The counting of votes for the elections held on December 10 was taken up on Tuesday and the process was completed in a couple of hours.

The Council election was held from nine Local Authorities’ constituencies for 12 seats due to retirement of sitting members on January 4, 2022, of which the TRS had won six seats unanimously. On December 14, the remaining six candidates of the TRS were elected with a comfortable margin in first preferential votes, dashing the hopes of some independent candidates supported by opposition parties who were banking on cross voting.

Local body representatives including corporators, councillors, ZPTC and MPTC members had cast their votes in the six constituencies in five undivided districts of Adilabad, Karimnagar, Khammam, Medak and Nalgonda The polling was held for two seats in Karimnagar district and one each in the remaining four districts. A total of 5,326 voters were eligible to cast their votes while 26 candidates were in fray.

In Karimnagar district, TRS won both the seats. L Ramana, who quit as Telugu Desam Party (TDP) state president to join TRS a few months ago, and Bhanu Prasad were elected on the basis of first preferential votes. Out of 1,324 votes in Karimnagar, 1,320 were polled. The essential figure for a candidate to win the election was 441. Ramana secured 479 votes while Bhanu Prasad garnered 585 votes.
