In Telangana, the polling is underway to elect 5 members for the Legislative Council from MLAs quota. Opposition Congress and TDP boycotted the polling alleging that Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao and the ruling TRS are committing unconstitutional acts and encouraging defections.

Speaker P Srinivas Reddy exercised his franchise when the voting began this morning. TRS Working President K Taraka Ramarao cast his vote while TRS members and ministers exercising their franchise. The polling will continue till 4 PM and counting of votes will be followed immediately after that.

The TRS fielded four candidates against 5 vacancies while Home minister Mahamood Ali seeking re-election for the Council.

The TRS and MIM extended full support to each other’s candidates in the 119 member Assembly. The Congress fielded G Narayana Reddy. Our Correspondent says, each candidate requires the support of 21 members to get elected for the council, based on the numbers.
