Hyderabad: In a setback to the ruling TRS ahead of Lok Sabha elections, the TRS backed candidate contested in the election for Warangal- Nalgonda- Khammam teachers' constituency lost the election.
Sitting MLC and PRTU (Progressive Teachers' Union) leader P Ravinder, to whom TRS supported, could secure less than 50 per cent votes out of the 18,885 total votes polled in the election for Warangal- Nalgonda- Khammam teachers' constituency held on Saturday.
His rival and UTF (United Teachers' Forum) state leader A Narsi Reddy got good number of votes to win the seat. The UTF has been fighting against TRS government on the delay in the implementation of new PRC and disbursement of pending IR (interim relief) for the last six months.
In another teachers' constituency of Medak- Nizamabad- Adilabad- Karimnagar, the ruling Telangana party supported candidate and sitting MLC P Sudhakar Reddy is trailing. His rival B Mohan Reddy secured more votes in the first four rounds giving ample indication of the defeat of incumbent legislator.
Congress senior leader T Jeevan Reddy is leading against TRS supported candidate Chandrashekhar Goud contested from Karimnagar- Adilabad- Nizamabad- Medak graduates' constituency. Counting of ballot papers is under progress and the results will be declared late night officially.
The TRS did not field its own candidates in the elections to the three constituencies but extended support to the PRTU candidates in the teachers' segment and independent in the graduates' constituency.
