Warangal: With only a day left for the Lok Sabha election campaign to end, the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) candidate Pasunuri Dayakar seems way ahead of his opponents, and is confident of clinching victory with a thumping majority. The TRS party cadre is also in an upbeat mood as they are confident of victory. This is evident from the fact that his opponents including candidates from the major parties Congress and BJP have called it a day considering the ‘speed of the car’. It may be added here that TRS’ Dayakar scripted history by winning the seat with a huge majority of 4,59,092 votes in the bye-election held in 2015..
TRS MLAs of Assembly constituencies that fall under Warangal Lok Sabha constituency, under the stewardship of Panchayat Raj Minister Errabelli Dayakar Rao, are rigorously campaigning for Dayakar. They are indeed competing with each other to get highest majority for the candidate from his respective constituency. Meanwhile, internal bickering and non-cooperation has become a headache for the Congress candidate Dommati Sambaiah. During a meeting held at the District Congress Committee (DCC) office in Warangal on Sunday, Sambaiah, though in lighter vein, expressed his unhappiness over the non-cooperation from the rank and file of the party during the election campaign. “I am absolutely lost as I am unable to comprehend what is happening within the party,” Sambaiah said. A former police officer, Sambaiah, was with the TDP for a long time. But he joined the Congress recently, and was successful in securing the ticket for Warangal Lok Sabha seat. But the party affairs have hit him hard. “Forget about campaigning by national leaders, not even a single State level leader has come to campaign for the party candidate here,” said a Congress leader. Meanwhile, TRS supremo and Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao addressed a poll rally in Warangal for the party candidate. “We are confident that we will win the seat with at least five lakh majority of votes,” said TRS leader and Telangana Vikalangula Cooperative Corporation chairman K Vasudeva Reddy. The situation with the BJP candidate Chintha Samba Murthy is also similar. Moreover, BJP cadre was also deeply disappointed with the cancellation of the scheduled visit of party national president Amit Shah recently..
