Telangana went to polls on April 11. With candidates like TRS's Kalvakuntla Kavitha from Nizamabad and AIMIM's Asaduddin Owaisi from Hyderabad, the state houses few key constituencies
Hyderabad: Telangana chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao's daughter K Kavitha who is seeking another term in the Nizamabad Lok Sabha constituency was gheraoed when she arrived to cast her vote on April 11. TRS MP Kavitha was gheraoed by several women farmers who questioned her for not fulfilling promises that were made in 2014. A total of 177 farmers contested against K Kavitha in Nizamabad.
However, the thumping victory of the Telangana Rashtra Samithi in the Assembly polls in December has filled the party with hopes of victory in all the 16 seats in the state, leaving its ally All India Majlis-e-Ittehad-ul-Muslimeen (AIMIM) to fight for Hyderabad in which Asaduddin Owaisi is contesting.
Nizamabad grabbed headlines after over 170 farmers filed nominations for the April 11 polls as a mark of protest, alleging that the ruling TRS had failed to ensure Minimum Support Price for turmeric and red jowar (sorghum) produce and in establishing a turmeric board in Nizamabad.
Two key constituencies in Telangana:
Hyderabad- All India Majlis-e-Ittehad-ul-Muslimeen (AIMIM) leader Asaduddin Owaisi is up against BJP's Bhagwanth Rao and INC candidate Firoz Khan.
Nizamabad- TRS candidate K Kavitha is seeking another term where BJP candidate D Aravind and INC candidate Madhu Goud Yaskhi have locked horns.
