Hyderabad: With only a few hours left for the polling to begin, the TRS cadre are leaving no stone unturned to ensure a thumping win for party candidates. As per instructions of Chief Minister and TRS President K Chandrashekhar Rao, the TRS party leaders are making necessary arrangements to ensure that all the beneficiaries of the government welfare schemes cast their votes in the first couple of hours of polling on Friday and gain optimum benefit from the positive votes.

The series of public meetings addressed by Chandrashekhar Rao received tremendous response from public, and has left the party cadres in an upbeat mood across the State. With campaign coming to an end on Wednesday evening, the party cadre have become active in making arrangements for making the beneficiaries of government welfare schemes cast their votes without fail. The party leadership advised the cadre to provide necessary assistance for voters especially the differently-abled persons and elderly persons, to reach the polling stations. Polling agents have also been deployed by TRS to assist the voters at polling booths. The TRS leadership is confident that a bigger voter turnout will ensure a bigger victory this time around.

According to an estimates of the party leadership, an average of 60,000 voters from each Assembly segment are beneficiaries of at least one welfare scheme introduced by the TRS government. A constituency-wise list of the government scheme beneficiaries were already handed over to the party MLA candidates during a meeting convened by the Chief Minister in October this year.

“A large section of people are happy with the TRS government’s welfare and development programmes. We are confident that with a little effort, these positive voters can ensure a better majority for the TRS nominees,” said a TRS MLC who has been coordinating with party candidates and other leaders during the electioneering.

Besides the beneficiaries, the party leadership is banking on the party loyalists and others who have a positive opinion of the TRS rule. The party leaders are also focusing on turning the anti-Congress and anti-TDP votes in favour of TRS and had already approached them during the campaign trail. “We have adopted a fool-proof system to cover all the voters in each constituency from booth level. Almost every household has been visited at least twice in the past a couple of months. Considering their response, we are confident to cross the half-way mark without much hassle and even cross the 100 seats mark with a little effort,” a TRS MLA nominee told Telangana Today.
