Hyderabad: Ruling party, TRS, which is facing tough time from opposition parties, is also facing trouble from rebels, for the first time on this scale. They are coming up with strong criticism on TRS and sitting corporator which is another hurdle for the ruling party. In many divisions, TRS is facing problems due to adamant rebels and popular independents. It tried through all means to force the rebels and other independents to withdraw till the last date and failed. The rebels want to teach a lesson to the party which they feel ditched them by rejecting party tickets. The say they fought for the party’s growth.
There are educated person and youngsters among the rebels, who are up against arms pointing out the failures of sitting corporators of the ward wherever required. This is going to cause a severe damage to the TRS, which is, for the first time, facing tough competition from opposition parties.
Coupled with anti-incumbency against the party, the dissidents and rebels are a cause of concern. They might empact the results. Nearly 40 divisions are there where the rebels are giving tough fight to the sitting candidates for TRS.
There are 1122 candidates in the race for 150 divisions in which TRS is contesting in all 150, BJP 149 (except Nawabsaheb kunta) and MIM in 51 divisions. The race will be primarily between TRS and BJP with the polling to be held on Dec 1st.
