Huzurabad Bypoll Result 2021: BJP candidate Eatala Rajender wins
Hyderabad, Nov 02: BJP candidate Eatela Rajender registered win in the keenly-fought Huzurabad (Telangana) bypoll with a majority of more than 20,000 votes against his closest rival TRS candidate Gellu Srinivas.
The by-election has been necessitated in Huzurabad in view of the resignation of Eatala Rajender in June following his removal from the state Cabinet over allegations of land-grabbing.
Rajender, who dismissed the allegations, had quit TRS and joined BJP.
Though as many as 30 candidates are in the fray, the main contest was among Gellu Srinivas Yadav of TRS, BJP's Eatala Rajender and Venkat Balmoori (Congress).
The bypoll is significant for the BJP as it aims at emerging as the alternative to ruling TRS in the 2023 Legislative Assembly elections.
