In the run-up to the elections in Khanapur Constituency, the political atmosphere is charged with heated criticisms from contenders who express confidence in securing victory. Each party asserts its commitment to development, vowing to replicate past achievements or promising a fresh wave of progress if granted another opportunity.
Amidst these claims, the focus shifts to the verdict of the people in Khanapur Constituency, raising anticipation about the representative they will choose for the Assembly. Located in Nirmal District under the joint Adilabad, Khanapur is a key battleground where the political landscape is marked by contrasting narratives.
The BRS leadership has endorsed Bhukya Johnson Rathod Naik, a close associate of KTR and a foreign returnee, as their candidate. Opposition Congress presents Vedma Bojju, while the BJP fields former Adilabad MP Ramesh Rathore. The diversity in candidates reflects the competitive nature of this electoral contest.
Khanapur Constituency boasts a significant voter base with 1,06,985 male voters, 1,10,667 female voters, 13 transgender voters, and 416 service electors, totaling 2,18,081 voters. Although the 2018 elections recorded a robust 80.87 percent voter turnout, this time it stands at 77.46 percent. The reserved constituency status, coupled with evolving political equations tied to ‘development,’ has the potential to influence voter sentiments and impact the success chances of candidates.
As the election day approaches, all eyes are on Khanapur Constituency to witness the outcome of this dynamic political contest, where criticisms clash, promises of development resonate, and the electorate holds the power to shape the future representation in the Assembly.
