Khammam: For the legislators, the ensuing zilla and mandal polls are more important than the recent general elections.
Both the TRS and the Congress leaderships have their legislators and local leaders to select the candidates and get them elected.
This is not a small thing for an MLA. The local body elections are crucual for their political existence. The local body representatives will play an active role during the Assembly elections and could determine their fate.
An MLA, on condition of anonymity, said, “The defeat or victory of the Lok Sabha candidate of our party will not make any difference for me. But, the victory of my party candidates is must in the local bodies’ election.”
