Stung TRS gives a new look to its car


HYDERABAD: With Samajwadi Forward Bloc applicants having Truck image eating into its votes in large numbers within the December 7 meeting elections, the TRS has submitted a redesigned Car image to Election Commission of India in order that citizens wouldn’t mistake a truck for a car. While the previous car image was pale in color and not noticeable on the EVM, the brand new one is darker in shade and in addition bold.

The ruling birthday party feels there's a clear resemblance between truck and car symbols and this confusion resulted in TRS victory margin dropping via five,000 to 10,000 votes in some constituencies and defeat in a few segments. Samajwadi Forward Bloc applicants secured votes in hundreds despite the fact that the birthday party doesn’t have any base in Telangana. The TRS leaders cried foul pronouncing uneducated citizens, especially in rural areas voted for the Truck due to the confusion.

For example, in Dharmapuri meeting constituency, Ok Narsaiah of Samajwadi Forward Bloc had secured 13,114 votes despite the fact that he was just a alsoran candidate. With the lack of these votes, TRS candidate Koppula Eshwar controlled to win with simply 400-vote margin. Similarly, TRS Nakrekal meeting candidate Vemula Veeresham lost the ballot via eight, 259 votes, whilst the Samajwadi Forward Block candidate Dubba Ravi Kumar secured 10, 383 votes, which can be greater than the combined votes secured via CPM and BJP applicants.

NEW WHEELS


‘Move to curb any confusion in LS ballot’


Samajwadi Forward Bloc applicants secured greater than five,000 votes in about 15 meeting constituencies, together with Manakondur (13,616), Dubbak (12,251), Jangaon (10,031), Nagarjunasagar (9,819). The birthday party not best fielded applicants with equivalent names, but had similar initials as that of TRS applicants. This is a fraudulent job,” TRS MP B Vinod Kumar told TOI.


TRS president Ok Chandrasekhar Rao expressed worry that confusion over the emblem might again make a dent within the birthday party votes within the upcoming Lok Sabha polls. A group of TRS leaders approached the ECI in December and suggested the ballot body to get to the bottom of the problem.


The birthday party has suggested the ECI not to allot truck, tractor with farmer and electric iron symbols, which in some way resemble TRS’ Car, to any candidate. However, the ECI, requested the TRS on January 7 to publish a redesigned Car image to take vital measure.
