- TRS would be pushed to second place
- Increase in Congress vote share
- YSRTP no way in race
- Bandi Sanjay leading in CM’s popular faces
Hyderabad: If elections are held today, the BJP would get a simple majority in Telangana, predicts a popular survey of national standing. Agency representatives who have been touring Telangana since Huzurabad bypoll conducted survey in 30 constituencies with a smaller sample. The survey clearly predicts that people are moving towards the saffron party giving clear edge to it with a bare majority. If the numbers are true, the survey figures out as follows , BJP 60-65,TRS 35-40, AIMIM 7, Congress 10-12,others 0-1 and neck to neck in 4 seats.
How the survey went on?
The state is categorised into groups like age, gender, Government employees, women, senior citizens and farmers. There is severe anti incumbency witnessed in all sectors and on sitting MLAs. Majority of sitting MLAs are facing anger from voters who say that there is no proper response or efforts from representatives to solve their problems, anti corruption has increased of late, and they want to give chance to other party to teach a lesson to the present ruling party. Increase in Unemployment became a major setback for the ruling party, agriculture sector not satisfactory and same is the case with he pensioners. Even after achieving separate statehood, we are not satisfied with present government, say 65% voters.
Questioned about popular CM face, Bandi Sanjay is leading with 58%, followed by CM K. Chandrasekhar Rao with 24% and KTR 6 to7%. TPCC Revanth Reddy is in the last position with 5 to 6%. YSRTP President Sharmila is nowhere in the race in winning seats or in popular CM’s face.
Exodus into BJP from January
BJP leaders and cadre are confident that Telangana will witness two bypolls in coming months, one for Vemulavada seat and the other for Munugodu. Vemulavada sitting TRS MLA Chennamaneni Ramesh is going to resign in a few days as per political sources after centre cleared that he is having German citizenship and holding passport of that country. There are speculations that TRS high Command had asked him to resgin before court verdict comes against him. It is rumoured that MP Santosh kumar’s father will contest on TRS ticket. On the other hand, BJP already started ground work in Vemulavada and Tula Uma may contest on BJP ticket if bypoll occurs.
Secondly, if the result of Vemulavada ends positive for the saffron party, Munogodu MLA Rajagopal reddy will resign and go for bypoll. His contention will be that after Eatala expelled from party, TRS announced more SOP’s for constituency and like the same Munugodu will be developed if he resigns.
Two senior leaders from Khammam district, two from Nalgonda, one from Mahaboobnagar, one from Adilabad, two from Ranga Reddy are likely to join the BJP if they are properly invited. This will be a major setback for the ruling party if it happens and will be master stroke on the part of the BJP.
Congress will increase its vote share and seats as per survey. Lok Sabha seats are also in favour of BJP if elections are held today. BJP may increase its MP seats to six from 4 as of now. One would be Malkajgiri and the other Khammam to go to the BJP.
