Women voters are going to play a key role in the Telangana Assembly elections with more than half of the Assembly constituencies having more than 50 per cent female voters.

As per data on district and Assembly constituency-wise voters, as of September 18, 2023, 66 constituencies have more than 50% women voters. Twenty of the 33 districts have more than 50% women voters with Nizamabad district having the highest number of 52.1% women followed by Jagtial, Nirmal, Kamareddy, Khammam, Medak, Rajanna Sircilla and Bhadradri which have more than 51% women voters. Women voters comprise 49.84% of the electorate across Telangana.

Balkonda has the highest percentage of women voters at 53.7% followed by Nizamabad Rural with 53.2% and Armoor 53.1%. The lowest is Serilingampally with 46.8%, followed by Jubilee Hills at 46.9%.

In Telangana, in the 2018 elections, 1.02 crore women voted across the State and played a major role in the mandate with women exceeding men by around 4,700. In 2018, 2.5 lakh more men were enrolled than women.

It may be mentioned here that in 2018, during the Telangana Assembly elections, more women voters turned up in the constituencies of Mancherial, Nirmal, Nizamabad, Kamareddy, Jagtial, Karimnagar, Rajanna Sircilla, Siddipet, Rangareddy, Medchal Malkajgiri, Mahbubnagar, Wanarpathy, Jayashankar Bhupalpally and Khammam.

In the GHMC area, in Kukatpally, Nampally, Serilingampally, Uppal, Pattancheru, Medchal, Quthbullapur, Sanath Nagar and LB Nagar more women turned up to vote than men.

Keeping in view women across the state, the Congress has already announced the Mahalakshmi scheme for women through which an assistance of Rs 2,500 per month will be given to women.

Apart from that LPG gas would be provided for Rs 500 a cylinder and free travel would be allowed for women in TSRTC buses across the state.

The BRS on the other hand has been giving schemes in the name of women, be it 2BHK houses of the Gruha Lakshmi scheme.

The BRS government is pitching hard the KCR kit scheme, nutrition kit and the Amma Vodi Scheme among others.

The BRS has nominated only seven women in 115 constituencies. The BJP is going to use the Women’s Reservation Bill to make inroads in the state. Women’s reservation is a gender-justice step that the BJP government will focus on during the 2024 campaign like the triple talaq ordinance during the 2019 polls. In the 2019 Lok Sabha elections more women than men exercised their right to vote.
