Hyderabad: Bypolls to the 12 assembly
seats that fell vacant following the resignation of sitting
MLAs in support of the separate Telangana demand would be held
before mid-August this year, Election Commissioner S Y Qureshi
said today.

"We have to do it within six months. The vacancies, I
think, arose on February 14. By August 14 we have to hold the
election, which is a long way off," he told reporters near
Guntur in Andhra Pradesh today where he attended a function
organised by a college.
