Politics: In a significant setback to the TDP+ alliance’s prospects, the Election Commission has declared theIn non-Janasena constituencies, a glass symbol can be used as a free election symbol. Currently, rebels, independents, and candidates from non-recognized parties in 50 assembly constituencies have been assigned the glass symbol.

The concern arises because the glass symbol is heavily associated with JSP’s election campaign and has become ingrained in the public consciousness. However, with the EC’s decision, rebels and independents contesting in constituencies where JSP is absent could gain an unfair advantage by using the glass symbol, which is closely associated with JSP’s recognized symbol.

This decision not only impacts JSP but also affects TDP and BJP, as there is a risk of voter confusion. Some voters might mistakenly cast their votes for the glass symbol, believing it belongs to JSP candidates. -Politics

In a closely contested election, every single vote holds immense significance, and even a slight deviation can lead to crucial outcomes. Therefore, any diversion caused by rebels and independents obtaining the glass symbol poses a significant threat to the TDP+ alliance. Given this trend, it’s plausible to anticipate the presence of the glass symbol in contention across all 154 assembly seats where JSP is not contesting and instead supporting TDP+ candidates.

The situation is particularly critical in constituencies such as Chandrababu’s Kuppam, Nara Lokesh’s Mangalagiri, and other key segments where independents and candidates from smaller parties hold sway. How will the alliance address this challenge? Only time will tell.
