Wednesday’s results of the elections held to two major corporations in the State viz., Visakhapatnam and Rajahmundry in the politically advanced East Godavari have all the resonance and clarity of warning bells. While, the Opposition Telugu Desam Party (TDP) bagged Rajahmundry with a clear majority, the split verdict in Visakhapatnam brings hardly any comfort to Chief Minister or his patymen even if they do manage to bag the mayoral post by luring rebels. A variety of factors appear to have swayed the voter against the ruling party. The cumulative effect of general unhappiness with governance, price rise and mainly absolute disgust among the leadership seems to have done in Visakhapatnam.

In Visakhapatnam, both Congress and TDP failed to get their act together in the selection of the candidates so much so that as many as 10 rebels emerged victorious as Independents. That the Congress bag fewer seats than the TDP, despite their patymen representing all the four Assembly and two Lok Sabha constituencies in Greater Visakha Municipal Corporation. In Rajahmundry, the TDP bagged an absolute majority winning 29 of the 50 municipal divisions leaving the Congress way behind with a tally of 17.

In contrasting scenarios in Hindupur, the Congress party wrested control of the municipality after a gap of two and half decades by a thin majority. In the absence of decisive verdict in Visakhapatnam, horse trade began even as the last results were coming in. In the 72 member civic body, the TDP-CPI (M) combine won 34 seats while the Congress-CPI alliance bagged 28 and the Independents 10.
