Sangareddy: The concept of small districts conceived by Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao has not only made administration easy, but has also simplified the holding of elections. Since the elections were conducted almost without any issues across Telangana, it has become a talk in not only official circles but also among the general public in the State.
For example, a Superintendent of Police and Collector of erstwhile Medak district, having a collectorate in Sangareddy, used to travel 300 km just to make a visit to Siddipet constituency headquarters. Since the distance to the constituency in Sangareddy district has been reduced to just 70 km, it has considerably reduced the time a Collector and SP spend on travel during the crucial election time.
Even during the counting, the small districts had helped them to carry out the counting process without any hiccups in the State.
Increase in voter turnout:
Meanwhile, officials have also said that small districts were also one of the key reasons for improving the polling percentage considerably this year. Since the officials were less burdened with election work, an officer said that they could concentrate more on conducting awareness programmes.
In addition, officials said that the use of technology had also made work and coordination easy for them.
