Polling underway for Nagarjuna Sagar Assembly segment in Telangana

Polling underway for Nagarjuna Sagar Assembly segment in Telangana

Hyderabad, April 17 (PTI) Voting is underway for the
bypoll to Nagarjuna Sagar assembly constituency in Telangana
on Saturday with voters queuing up to exercise their
franchise.
Polling began at 7 am and will conclude at 7 pm, poll
officials said.
COVID-19 safety protocols are being followed at polling
booths.
As many as 4,000 police personnel including central
forces have been deployed for the bypoll.
Election officials have set up as many as 346 polling
stations.
The bypoll for the constituency was necessitated due to
the death of sitting TRS legislator Nomula Narsimhaiah
who passed away in December last.
The ruling TRS nominated Nomula Bhagat son of
Narsimhaiah.
The saffron party has fielded P Ravi Kumar while the
Congress put up senior leader K Jana Reddy, who had served as
Leader of Opposition in the previous Legislative Assembly.
Reddy lost from the same constituency in the 2018
Assembly polls.
The Nagarjuna Sagar bypoll result would be an acid test
for the ruling TRS, resurgent BJP and Congress– with all
three keen to prove their might as a win or defeat may script
the strategy to be adopted by them for the Assembly polls in
2023.
Though candidates from other parties and independents are
in the fray for the Assembly segment, the contest would be
mainly between the three parties. PTI GDK
