Of all the 105 candidates KCR declared for the coming general elections, only two sitting MLAs were shown the door. One is Andole MLA Babu Mohan and the second is Chennur MLA Nallala Odelu. As dissent is growing among them, KCR personally called on both Babu Mohan and Odelu. He has asked them to meet him at his farm house.
Both Babu Mohan and Odelu have went to KCR’s farm house where KCR told to have explained them the reasons and reportedly assured them of compensating with some key and nominated posts. It was learnt that the duo was promised either MLC or any other key nominated post and both the leaders are said to be convinced with KCR’s assurance.
On the other hand, KCR & Co have been trying to pacify the unhappy leaders. PJR’s daughter Vijaya Reddy who had expected Khairatabad constituency is said to be very unhappy after she was denied ticket. TRS leaders are trying to convince Vijaya Reddy.
Meanwhile, Hyderabad Mayor Bonthu Rammohan Reddy, who is upset over not getting Uppal ticket has left to Bangalore along with his close friend. Top leaders in TRS are discussing the issue and took up the matter to KCR. If KCR gives his nod to change Bethi Subash Reddy, Ram Mohan would be given the chance. Meanwhile, TRS leaders are also preparing Bethi Subash Reddy for the changes. If Bonthu Ram Mohan gets the Uppal ticket, the vacant Mayor post is likely to be given to Keshava Rao’s daughter Vijaya Lakshmi. However, Keshava Rao wants his daughter Vijaya Lakshmi or his son Venkata Rao to be given Khairatabad seat.
Also, discussions are going on over Danam Nagender’s relentless attempts to get Khairatabad seat. TRS top leaders are weighing various options on to accommodate whom.With reports of Konda Surekha’s exit from TRS and likely to join Congress, TRS party wants to field Basavaraju from the party in Warangal East. Basavaraju Saraiah was present at Husnabad meet.
Choppadandi MLA Bodiga Sobha was also present at Praja Ashirwada Sabha in Husnabad. Meanwhile, there is a good competition for Malkajgiri Assembly seat. Sitting MLA Kanakareddy’s daughter-in-law Vijaya Santhi, MLC Mynampally Hanumantha Rao, Malkajgiri MP Mallareddy are all expecting the seat. Even there is a lot of curiosity over Medchal and Vikarabad constituencies. It is buzzed in TRS circuits that these seats may be filled with the leaders who join TRS from other parties.
On the whole, KCR & top party leaders are busy holding deliberations with ticket aspirators and trying to convince the others who are not getting tickets.
