Anticipating thumping victory to the ruling TRS party, political activists across the parties were trying for the ticket from the ruling party for the ensuing Greater Warangal Municipal Corporation (GWMC) due in a week.
Majority of them have been expecting the same result that the party got in GHMC elections and hence the reason for hectic lobbying. Senior cadre of Congress and TDP have queued up at TRS office. Those holding party positions are also keen on joining the ruling party. Meanwhile, town Congress president T. Vidyasagar had quit the party and joined TRS. Senior leader Hari Rama Devi had also left the party. TDP urban party president A. Murali had quit the party and is yet to join the TRS.
Meanwhile, TRS legislator D. Vinay Bhaskar appealed to his followers to remain calm as party cannot give tickets to all aspirants. Even those loyal to party may not get a chance to contest the municipal election. “Party high command goes by merits and winning chances of applicants," he said, requesting the party cadre not to agitate as Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao would do justice to all genuine party workers.
The committee headed by Deputy CM Kadiyam Srihari was entrusted with the job of selecting candidates purely by merit such as antecedents of person and his or her winning chances.
