Congress gave a big blow to the BJP in the recent by-elections in Greater Hyderabad. The Congress party candidate defeated the BJP candidate in the by-election in the Lingojiguda division.
The by-election was inevitable due to the untimely death of BJP candidate Aakula Ramesh Reddy. Mandugula Akhil Pawan Gowda won the seat in the recent by-elections on behalf of Congress.
BJP chiefs have requested Minister KTR that TRS candidates should not contest from this division. With this, no one has contested on behalf of TRS. BJP thought that it could win the sitting seat again.
But to contrary, the Congress candidate won in this by-election. With this recent victory, the number of Congress corporates in Baldia has risen to three.
