The grand old party released its first list on October 15. With this second list, the Congress announced candidates for a total of 100 constituencies across the state.

Different parties, same emotion

Bharat Rashtra Samithi (BRS) leader Thatikonda Rajaiah in August, could not keep his emotions intact after he was dismissed from an election ticket during the party’s first list of candidates announcement.

Rajaiah, a sitting MLA from Station Ghanpur broke down while kneeling before the statue of Dr B. R. Ambedkar in his constituency.

This time, he was denied a ticket in view of allegations of sexual harassment from a village sarpanch belonging to his own party.

The state is going to the ballot on November 30.
