    In the Secunderabad Lok Sabha constituency, the average polling percentage across seven Assembly segments is 44%. This has left the major political parties uncertain about their winning chances, with candidates focusing on their own constituencies.

    The main contenders in the election are G Kishan Reddy from BJP, T Padma Rao from BRS, and Danam Nagender from Congress. Among the seven constituencies in Secunderabad, Khairatabad had the highest polling percentage (over 47.65), followed by Secunderabad (over 46.57), Amberpet (over 45.30), Sanathnagar (over 42.15), Musheerabad (over 41), Jubilee Hills (over 39.38), and Nampally (over 37.30).

    The polling in the Secunderabad constituency started slowly, with only 10% voting in the first two hours. Technical glitches in electronic voting machines caused delays, including one incident where BJP candidate G Kishan Reddy had to wait 40 minutes to cast his vote.

    Voting picked up later in the day, with long lines forming in areas like Amberpet, Secunderabad, Nampally, and Jubilee Hills. The fate of the candidates will only be known on June 4 after the votes are counted.
