Will KCR campaign in Huzurabad? This is the biggest question before the ruling TRS in Huzurabad. It is a no-brainer that there is no orator like KCR and that he can swing the public opinion effortlessly in the course of just one speech. He has done it in the past and can work the magic now too.
He changed the complexion of the campaign in Nagarjunasagar with just one public meeting in Haaliya. Similarly, he was to speak in Huzurnagar bypoll. But that had to be cancelled because of the inclement weather. He addressed a public meeting in a village that is very close to Dubbak during the bypoll there. But sources say addressing such a public meeting in Huzurabad is difficult in view of the Covid restrictions. No public meeting is allowed and the attendance in election meetings should not exceed 1000. This has only made holding a public meeting impossible in Huzurnagar.
One possibility is to adopt a Dubbak-like strategy. As per this, a public meeting would be held very close to Huzurabad, out outside the constituency so that it does not attract any provisions of the election code. Some party sources are planning to put up LED projectors all across the constituency to broadcast the meeting live. The BJP too is planning a similar meeting outside the constituency.
Meanwhile, the Congress stoo has released a list of 20 star campaigners, who will campaign for the Huzurabad byelections. The list includes TPCC Chief Revanth Reddy, PCC incharge Manickam Tagore, former cricketer Azharuddin and Sitakka.
