GHMC Standing Committee polls to witness triangular fight Hyderabad, May 13: Almost six months after severing ties, the Majlise-Ittehadul Muslimeen and Congress party are gearing up for a direct combat in the elections for the Standing Committee of Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation. The MIM-Congress was able to maintain its control over the GHMC's Standing Committee for three consecutive terms. While Congress party had eight members, the MIM was able to win seven slots in the Standing Committee. The alliance of Congress with 52 corporators and MIM with 43 corporators, had reduced the opposition Telugu Desam Party to a non-entity in the Standing Committee although it had 43 corporators. However, this time the political equations look different.
As many as six corporators have quit the Congress to join the YSR Congress Party. Further, it lost the Borabanda elections to MIM which reduced its number to 45. The MIM had same numbers compared to June last year when the Standing Committee elections were held. While it lost the Langar Houz division due to the disqualification of its corporator, its candidate won from Borabanda seat. The TDP lost two corporators with one joining the BJP and other YSRCP. However, with the Congress and MIM severing ties, the Standing Committee elections are all set to witness a triangular fight. Analysts say that for the first time, the TDP will be able to win at least two seats in the Standing Committee while the major loss would be incurred by the MIM. The Standing Committee elections will be held on June 6 from 10 AM to 3 PM at GHMC Headquarters at Tank Bund and the results will also be declared on the same day
