Election campaign hots up in Old City

Wed 25 Nov 2020, 13:47:51
The situation in Old City, the southern part of Hyderabad, remains different, as no other party, except MIM, is seen canvassing in streets. 

Various parties, including TRS, BJP and Congress, are contesting in 150 divisions, but their presence in the form of rallies or 'padayatras' ('paidal dauras') in most of localities is bare minimum.

After the TRS announcement, that it would not ally with the MIM and contest all divisions with strong candidates, gave an impression that it would give a tough fight. 

On the other hand, 'confident' BJP, with fresh win in the Dubbaka by-election, is hoping to give a tough fight to MIM in some divisions. But even its flags remain visible in fewer localities of 'purana shehar'.

All candidates of Majlis party, along with MLAs, are taking part in the poll campaign in Old City, but no other party candidate has been seen on roads. Even if they are canvassing, they lack public gatherings, as the MIMs does. Barring the MIM nominees, people are unaware of other party candidates who are contesting the election. 

Most TRS candidates also seem to keep the campaign on a low key, particularly in the Old City pockets. Only an auto with a speaker is seen moving on roads, as campaign vehicle. Minister KTR is conducting grand roadshows in the other parts of the City. Let alone ministers, no senior party leader is found canvassing for the party candidates.
