The ruling TRS has sought the co-operation of the Congress for unanimous election of Deputy Speaker.
Speculation is rife that Sabita and her son Karthik are likely to join TRS while defections may result in one woman MLA from Congress being inducted in KCR's cabinet.

The officials informed the municipal commissioner that around 8,046 persons enrolled for the graduate elections pertaining to the Central Assembly constituency.
