Congress has greater appeal among women says Revanth Reddy:- The Congress party seems to have garnered strong support from female voters in the state, thanks to its Mahalakshmi, Gruha Jyothi, and Indiramma housing initiatives. Thousands of women are benefiting from the Mahalakshmi free bus program, receiving 200 units of free power each month, purchasing gas cylinders for Rs 500, and obtaining one-time assistance for Indiramma houses. In 13 out of the 17 Lok Sabha constituencies in the state, women voters outnumber men, indicating that the Congress party is likely to receive a higher percentage of the female vote. In the recent Assembly elections, the Congress party triumphed in 37 out of 56 constituencies where women voters surpassed men, clearly demonstrating the extensive support base it has built through the implementation of Mahalakshmi, Gruhalakshmi, and Indiramma Houses programs.

According to the most recent voter data released by the Election Commission of India (ECI) in March for the Lok Sabha elections, there are more female voters than male voters in Adilabad, Peddapalli, Karimnagar, Nizamabad, Zaheerabad, Medak, Mahbubnagar, Nagarkurnool, Nalgonda, Bhongir, Warangal, Mahbubabad, and Khammam constituencies. In these constituencies, women have the potential to play a crucial role in determining the political fate of parties. As of February this year, the total number of voters in the state stands at 3,29,19,735. Out of this, women voters make up 1,65,87,221, while men voters are 1,64,31,777, and there are 2,737 third gender voters. The number of women voters exceeds that of men by 1,55,444, and this gap is expected to increase further before the polling takes place. Notably, the Nizamabad constituency has the highest margin with 90,953 more female voters compared to male voters.

To attract the attention of women voters, the Congress, BJP, and BRS are going the extra mile. The Congress is aggressively promoting the Mahalakshmi scheme, which offers free travel in TSRTC buses. They highlight that nearly 30 lakh women have benefitted from this scheme since its launch on December 9, 2023, resulting in a total savings of Rs 1,177 crore in travel expenses within four months. On average, each household saves up to Rs 2,000 per month in travel expenses. Additionally, nearly 40 lakh households are availing gas cylinders at a subsidized rate of Rs 500 each.
