The pre-poll period before elections is where one can see the original state of the country. There are no laws, boundaries, resistance and everything that everything gets evaporated in the heat of elections. Now, the same heat has started in Telangana before the commencement of the Greater Hyderabad polls.
The ruling TRS party, the BJP, which is on the swing after its victory in Dubbaka, the Congress who are desperate to regain its former glory is gearing up for a battle. At the same time, there is a lot of manipulation going on during the election campaign. Illegal distribution of alcohol on a large scale is happening all over the city.
Cash is being distributed to turn voters to their side. The Election Commission and the police are working hard to curb all this. Beer, brandy, whiskey and rum are served on the streets. Four FIRs have been registered in this regard. In addition the Flying Squad seized 34,81,800Rs. worth of things. The rest of the agencies, however, seized nearly Rs 1 crore. They are being stored or distributed in the form of cannabis and various narcotics.
In addition to these, banners, posters, billboards, flexi, flags, etc., were also removed if they are placed in unauthorized places and don’t abide by the rules of the SEC. The total amount seized before the election was Rs 1,35,87,450 YET..!
