HYDERABAD: The municipal administrations of Rangareddy and Medchal-Malkajgiri districts are all set for the upcoming urban local body elections. In fact, they have already finalised their ward and voters. As many as 16 municipalities from these districts are located on the fringes of Hyderabad. This is probably what is drawing the special attention of officials and politicians to these areas.

The government is yet to release the election notification for the municipal elections. It is expected to be released soon. As per the data from the Municipal Administration and Urban Development Department (MAUD), there are 351 wards in Rangareddy and 289 wards in Medchal-Malkajgiri across the 28 municipalities of both the districts.

These have been notified by Principal Secretary of MAUD Arvind Kumar after careful consideration. The municipalities include Nizampet and Shamshabad — two of the fastest-growing parts of the city. In fact, Nizampet is one of the most densely populated areas in the city.

Officials have turned down the requests for 118 and 100 objections in Rangareddy and Medchal respectively. Interestingly, in Medchal, not a single objection was raised in Bandlaguda, Nizampet, Narsingi, Madhira, Dharmapuri, Jawaharnagar and Kompally with regard to delimitation.
