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.
