Public dissent against the Government have seen increases to many folds this time shortly before the GHMC elections and if the political analysts are to be believed there is a great possibility that it will cast a shadow over the poll outcome for which the polling is scheduled on 1st December and result would be out on 4th december next month.
Ahead of blowing the bugle of GHMC election, the city has witnessed a devastating flood that has trampled the lives of thousands of people in just a fraction of a moment prompting the government to take up relief measures on war footing. While facing an uncontrolled situation this time, the government soon realized that putting in place mere relief measures as usual will not help it to sail with the situation as it soon has to face the GHMC elections. Thus, for the first time in the history of Telangana the government took a bold decision and has taken up distribution of cash relief among the flood victims.
However, the reports of irregularities in distribution of relief amount blow up the coals of an already volatile situation after the flood. The outrage among the people went up to the next level when the government abruptly halted the distribution of cash relief prompting the aggrieved people to hit the streets in several areas.
Finding no other option but to concede the demand of enraged people, the government has extended the date of distribution of relief for a few more days only to end it later in haste by declaring the election schedule that took even the political analysts to surprise.
The only thing that wasn’t changing with the evolving development is the magnitude of the outrage and dissent among the people who were seen taking umbrage over the way the government has taken up relief measures and distribution of cash relief among the victims.
People in several flood hit areas are seen questioning and pointing fingers towards the government for the failure of official machinery in discerning between the deserved and the flawed besides rendering justice with the affected people.
Despite spending almost Rs.5000 crore on cash relief distribution the significant number of affected people are remain deprived with the government dole and have seen censuring it for extending benefit among bogus people instead of the genuine one being affected with the ravaging flood.
According to the political analysts, the intensity of the dissent among the public is extremely great and there is a great possibility that it would cast a shadow over the election result for which the polling is scheduled to be done on 1st December and the result will be out on 4th December next month.
