KARIMNAGAR: Polling for the by-elections to the Huzurabad assembly segment progressing at a brisk pace in various parts of the assembly segment on Saturday.

Voting started at 7 am and the voters were seen forming serpentine queues strictly adhering to the Covid-19 norms of wearing facemask and maintaining social distancing. Till 11 am, the authorities had stated that the polling was 33.27 per cent and would pick up in the day.

At all the 306 polling stations, the voters were seen in large numbers to exercise their franchise. A total of 2.37 lakh electorate would cast their votes. A total of 1935 polling personnel were deployed for the poll duties including 178 students for webcasting of the polling process. On the other hand, the police had also made unprecedented security arrangements by deploying 3865 personnel including 1520 central para-military forces.

The district election authorities had made all arrangements for the smooth conduct of voting. They had opened help desks and health desks at all polling stations to provide necessary medical assistance, supplying sanitisers etc. They had also kept PPE kits for the benefit of Covid patients to cast their votes from 6 pm to 7 pm. Special arrangements were also made for the specially-abled voters by constructing ramps at all polling stations.

BJP candidate and former Minister Etala Rajender along with his wife Jamuna exercised their franchise at a polling station in Kamalapur mandal headquarters. Speaking on the occasion, he alleged that the ruling TRS had misused the official machinery and resorted to undemocratic acts of distributing money and liquor to lure the voters. He called upon the people to protect democracy and self-respect by casting their votes. He also inspected various polling stations to study the polling process and hoped that the polling percentage would reach 90 per cent.

Collector and District election officer RV Karnan had also toured various polling stations in Veenavanka mandal and inspected the arrangements and polling process. He also interacted with the voters in the queue lines. Commissioner of Police V Satyanarayana was also seen inspecting the polling stations and reviewing the security arrangements. He instructed the police officials not to allow any kind of campaigning in front of the polling stations.

On the other hand, the social media campaigning was still being continued by the main contesting parties. They were leaving no stone unturned as a last minute effort to lure the voters by sending messages using the social media platform.
