A Gazette notification in this regard will be issued on October 7 and the last date for filing of nominations will be October 14. The election will be held on November 3 and the counting of votes on November 6.
The bypoll has been necessitated by the resignation of Congress MLA Komatireddy Raj Gopal Reddy on August 2, citing differences with Telangana Congress chief A Revanth Reddy. Raj Gopal Reddy has since joined the BJP, which has fielded him in the byelection.
The Congress, meanwhile, has fielded Palvai Sravanthi, the daughter of former MLA and ex- Rajya Sabha MP Palvai Govardhan Reddy. The Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) will have former MLA K Prabhakar Reddy in the fray.
