    The BRS party in Hyderabad is facing challenges as corporators are leaving, causing them to lose control of municipalities on the outskirts of the city. Recently, 15 corporators from the Peerzadiguda municipal corporation in the Medchal constituency have defected from the party.

    In the 2020 elections, the Congress party did not win in any of the nine Urban Local Bodies (ULBs) in the Medchal Malkajgiri district. However, due to recent political changes, the Congress has been gaining control of these ULBs, with the latest blow being the impending loss of the Peerzadiguda Municipal Corporation.

    Led by Deputy Mayor Shiv Kumar, the 15 BRS corporators are currently in Goa and are expected to join the Congress party soon. Despite efforts by Medchal MLA Ch Malla Reddy to prevent their defection, the corporators have decided to switch parties.

    There have been claims from BRS leaders that the corporators were coerced into joining the Congress party, with allegations of kidnapping. This incident follows a pattern where Congress has been able to gain control of corporations from BRS, including Jawaharnagar and Boduppal Municipal Corporations.

    There are suspicions among BRS leaders that a senior party member may have influenced the corporators to defect. Speculations also suggest that Medchal MLA Malla Reddy might be considering leaving the party, raising concerns that he could be behind the corporators’ decision to join the Congress party.
