Even as Telangana Rashtra Samithi has been rejoicing over sweeping 60% of panchayats in the recently concluded Panchayat Polls, results in Kodangal have come as a surprise to people as the difference between Congress and TRS is massive.
According to the results, Congress secured 67 while TRS secured only 17. This huge difference between the Congress and TRS clearly indicates that the grand old party still enjoys popularity with its maverick leader Revanth Reddy ruling the roost. On the other hand, this has also raised doubts about Revanth Reddy’s loss in the constituency. In the Telangana assembly polls, Revanth Reddy lost to TRS candidate while this was believed to be a rigged election.
Despite several accusations that Revanth Reddy could not lose the election, the results showed that he lost it. Not only that, but several voters from the constituency were deleted from the list by the elections commission. Going by the numbers in the Panchayat Polls, Congress alleged foul play by TRS government as the results of Panchayat polls have clarified that Revanth is still Kodangal’s favorite and that the constituency is his “adda.” In addition to this, the case on EVM manipulation during Assembly elections also is being taken up in the High Court. Wonder what TRS has to say about this!
