Huzurnagar by-election is set to be held today. The ruling party, TRS is looking to put an end to Congress party’s domination in this constituency, while the Congress party is hoping to register its fourth victory in a row.

Incidentally, a case was filed against TPCC president Uttham Kumar Reddy, saying he held a press meet at his residence yesterday, which is against election code.

The Election Commission will be investigating Uttham soon and he will have to explain himself.

TRS leaders have approached the EC and asked them to file another case on Uttham, saying he stayed in Huzurnagar even after the election campaigning time was over and tried to influence voters.

It is already known that TRS party fielded Saidi Reddy while Congress gave the MLA ticket to Uttham Kumar Reddy’s wife Padmavathi Reddy.
