Usually by this time, the Greater elections should be completed, but that did not happen. As per the sources, reason behind the delay is that Government of Telangana seems to have different strategy. Gossip is that they are delaying the elections, so that they do not have to depend on the support of MIM.
MIM have a strong foothold in Old city. To hoist its colors over GHMC, TRS should take the help of MIM and KCR seems to have different ideas.
There were demands in the past to divide GHMC into small corporations like Delhi. Now TRS party is viewing for the opportunity to cash in this demand and divide GHMC into 3 parts consisting of ‘old city’, ’secundrabad/central city’ and ‘cyberabad’. In that way, TRS can limit the MIM influence to only Old city.
There are rumors that the game plans are being drawn to attract the candidates from other parties into TRS. Experts say that the jumping season starts just before the GHMC elections. As there are none recently, it is safe to assume that the elections are not going to be held anytime soon.
