Hyderabad: One more candidate — Bhojraj Koyalkar of Shramajeevi Party — filed his nomination on Wednesday for the MLC election, which is scheduled for August 26, in Telangana. This takes the number of candidates in the fray for the MLC seat under the MLA quota to two.

Filing of nominations closed on Wednesday and August 19 is the deadline for withdrawal of nominations. Even if Koyalkar remains in the fray after the scrutiny of nominations on August 16, TRS nominee Gutha Sukhender Reddy is expected to win the contest with ease as the party enjoys an unstoppable majority in the Legislative Assembly.

In the event of Koyalkar’s nomination getting rejected during scrutiny, Sukhender Reddy would be declared elected unopposed. Congress and BJP did not field their candidates for the election.
