Maheshwaram Assembly segment is becoming a hot seat for all the political parties. The TDP, the BJP and the Congress parties are taking it up prestigious constituency and none wants to forego it.
The followers of aspirants are resorting to pressure tactics to see that they do not lose the seat. The supporters of former home minister Sabitha Indra Reddy staged dharna in front of her house and insisted that Congress should not concede the seat to CPI in the seat adjustment. One of the activists tried to immolate himself by dousing with petrol.
Police and other activists averted it. Similalry, sensing the TDP leaders may lose party ticket if the TDP and BJP forged alliance, the supporters of ticket aspirants from Greater Hyderabad and Ranga Reddy district on Thursday staged sit-in in front of the party President N Chandrababu Naidu’s residence and demanded that he should not leave Maheswaram seat to BJP. TDP leader T Krishna Reddy had unsuccessfully contested the seat in 2009.
TDP leader Krishna Prasad who also unsuccessfully fought the election from LB Nagar segment in 2009 has also descended at Naidu’s house with his supporters. Not to be left behind, TDP leader from Secunderabad segment Bhadrinath also staged dharna demanding that he be given the party ticket from Secunderabad constituency.
