    Karimnagar is facing political turmoil as the ruling BRS party, which had held the Mayor and Deputy Mayor posts for the past four and a half years, is now in trouble. The Congress party is looking to remove Mayor Sunil Rao from his position, even though his term is set to end in six months. In the 2020 municipal elections, the Congress party failed to win any divisions, a first in the history of the municipality.

    Before the elections, all Congress corporators switched sides to join the BRS party, leaving the Congress without a suitable candidate. This led to the Congress party having no representation in the council for the first time. As a result, the Congress party is determined to regain power in the corporation.

    Minister Ponnam Prabhakar is reportedly leading the charge to bring the Congress party back into power. Several BRS corporators have already joined the Congress, with more expected to follow suit. If everything goes according to plan, there may be a vote of no confidence against Mayor Sunil Rao in June.

    The Karimnagar Municipal Corporation has 60 divisions, with BRS holding 33 seats, BJP with 13, MIM with 6, and independents with 8. The dynamics of the council have shifted with BRS corporators switching loyalties to the Congress, potentially affecting the balance of power in the corporation.

    With strategic moves being made by both parties, it remains to be seen who will ultimately gain control of the Mayor’s seat. The support of MIM corporators will play a crucial role in determining the outcome of this political showdown.
