Konda Surekha blames cross-voting for her loss in Parkal by-poll

June 15, 2012

Former Minister and YSR Congress Party candidate for Parkal by-election Konda Surekha blamed cross voting for losing the Parkal by-election. TRS candidate M Bikshapati won the Parkal constituency by a close margin in a see-saw battle at Parkal.

Speaking to media after the results were announced, Surekha alleged that Congress leaders have worked for the victory of TRS in the by-election. Though, she lost the close contest, Surekha said that she was not disappointed. She felt proud for giving a tough fight to TRS who has brought national level and state level leaders to Parkal and tried hard to defeat her. The close contest proved that there is a lot of following to Jagan Mohan Reddy in Telangana and that said that the Telangana sentiment didn't work as much as TRS had hoped. However, she clarified that she is not saying that there is no Telangana sentiment in the region.

Surekha alleged that the TRS party have cheated the people in the by-election. She reminded that people would teach TRS a lesson if it couldn't manage to get the Telangana state as promised within three months. Revealing her future plans, Surekha plans to stay close to the people of the region. She expressed happiness over the YSR Congress Party's victory in 15 constituencies.
