GVMC, Rajahmundry and Hindupur to elect local bodies

Hyderabad, February 18, 2007

Arrangements have been made for holding elections to the Rajahmundry and Greater Visakhapatnam Municipal Corporation and Hindupur Municipality to be held on Monday. While this is the second election to the Municipal Corporation of Rajahmundry, the GVMC is going to polls for the first time after merger of some municipalities and Panchayats to create a Greater Visakhapatnam Municipal Corporation.

Nearly 11.30 lakh electorate will decide the fortunes of as many as 716 candidates including 256 rebels and independents in the Monday elections to the GVMC. Major political parties are worried over the rebel facto that is likely to mar the prospects of the official candidates. Both the TDP and Congress are facing the rebel problem in 47 divisions. In Rajahmundry, 1.95 lakh voters will decide the fate of 197 candidates contesting in 50 divisions.

In Hindupur, as many as 192 candidates are contesting the election for 38 wards. Hindupur has an electorate of nearly 85,000. Though Congress is aligned with the CPI, it is facing problems in nine wards where its rebels are in the fray.
