Elections: Significant traffic congestion unfolded along the Hyderabad-Vijayawada National Highway as individuals made their way back to Hyderabad after exercising their voting rights in their respective hometowns on Monday evening. With elections held in Telangana and Andhra Pradesh on the same day, many commuters traveled to their native places in AP or within Telangana, only to return to Hyderabad thereafter. This influx led to a substantial buildup of vehicles on the highway, particularly evident at toll plazas, as Monday evening progressed.

Hyderabad’s highways appeared desolate on election day as a large number of people departed the city to cast their ballots.

On Sunday and Monday, Hyderabad’s normally bustling highways appeared almost desolate. Usually, one may only witness such sights around Sankranti, when a large number of people go back to their hometowns to celebrate the harvest festival.

In Hyderabad, there are over 12 lakh voters who are from Andhra Pradesh.

Two Telugu states went to the polls on Monday, with Telangana holding elections for 17 Lok Sabha seats. Andhra Pradesh had elections for 25 Lok Sabha seats as well as 175 assembly seats.

As per the Election Commission of India, Telangana witnessed a voter turnout of 64.74%, while Andhra Pradesh recorded a voting percentage of 78.25%.
