Trans woman Chandramukhi Muvvala, who is contesting from the Goshamahal assembly in the Hyderabad city, is the only one member from Trans community of the total 3,584 candidates filed their nomination for the upcoming Telangana assembly elections.
Chandramukhi is contesting under the banner of Bahujan Left Front (BLF) against Congress candidate Mukesh Goud and BJP’s sitting MLA Raja Singh.
Talking about contesting elections, Chandramukhi told a media website that “I choose to enter politics because when we ask for policy-level changes, politicians only promise. They are not trying to make policy-level changes for the benefit of the trans or LGBTQ community. I want to sit there and ask them why they are not doing things, and demand that they start doing them now”.
Speaking on the lines of Goshamahal constituency, she opined that “ I am not promising them the world and I would not promise to provide each and every person with a job and that I will do everything. Road facility is terrible, roadside areas and by-lanes are in bad shape, housing schemes are bad. We don’t even have water facilities in some areas”.
Telangana polls are scheduled for December 7 and results will be declared on December 11.
