2015 Municipal polls

The main fight fight in the 2015 GHMC polls is between the Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) and the Telugu Desam Party (TDP). While the TRS has given the responsibility to lead the party in the polls to IT minister K Taraka Rama Rao, TDP's newly anointed national general secretary Nara Lokesh is leading from the front.

KTR has taken the charge of planning the strategy for his party by publicising the government developmental works taken up in the GHMC area. The TRS party is trying to establish Hyderabad as the IT capital of Telangana and attract IT startups to the city. Meanwhile Nara Lokesh has told the TDP leaders to counter TRS' claim and explain to people how former Chief Minister and TDP chief Chandrababu Naidu has put Hyderabad city on the global map. Publicity on Naidu's efforts on development efforts of Hyderabad including the construction of international airport, numerous flyovers, sport stadiums and other infrastructure facilities will be TDP's main points while campaigning.
