HYDERABAD:  In the next by-election brought on by the resignation of the Congress party's current MLA, Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) would make every effort to win the Munugode Assembly seat.

In the constituency, which is likely to see a fierce triangular fight, the ruling party expects to start its election campaign on September 15. The TRS would stop at nothing to complete Mission Munugode and prevent the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) from winning another by-election, treating it as a prestige war.

The BJP is eager to win a hat-trick of by-elections after seizing Dubbak and Huzurabad from the TRS in 2020 and 2021, respectively. The major players saw the race in Munugode as a semi-final before the Assembly elections of the following year.

As a result of Komatireddy Rajagopal Reddy's resignation and conversion to the BJP, the seat became vacant. On August 21, he formally joined the BJP during a speech given by Union Home Minister Amit Shah in Munugode.
A day before the BJP's rally, Chief Minister and TRS President K. Chandrasekhar Rao spoke at a public gathering in the area and charged 100 MLAs, MLCs, and MPs with leading the TRS campaign.
From September 15, these leaders will start compaigning for the election. The group has put out a "50-day action plan."  For the 50-day intensive campaign covering all the mandals, villages, and municipalities, the party will enlist 1,500 leaders and workers.

The Election Commission of India (ECI) is anticipated to announce poll notification by the end of September, and a by-election is anticipated to be held by the end of October, according to the TRS.

To plan the party's strategy, KCR already met with TRS officials from the combined Nalgonda district. Energy Minister G. Jagadish Reddy, who will be in charge of the party's campaign in Munugode, will supervise the MLAs, MLCs, and other leaders. The task of implementing the party campaign in two villages will probably be assigned to each MLA. Up to 88 MLAs could set up camp in the district.

The ruling party has a strength of 103 MLAs, 17 MPs and 36 MLCs. Services of at least 100 of them will be used for the campaign. They will be given the responsibility of campaigning in 100 units.
