As elections near in Telangana, the Kodangal assembly segment which was under the jurisdiction of Mahbubnagar district earlier, now is under Vikarabad after the reorganisation of districts. While the Telangana Congress Working President A. Revanth Reddy is confident that he will win his seat, TRS is also upping the ante by fielding P. Narender Reddy, brother of TRS Minister P. Mahender Reddy.
TRS believes that the new name from the region might work for voters who are vexed with Revanth Reddy. According to TRS sources, the reorganisation of districts also might help their candidate.
It is also planning to deploy senior ministers to support Narender Reddy’s candidature and campaign in the constituency. Sources say that the TRS is also planning to rake up the Cash for Vote case to throw Revanth Reddy in a quandary and weaken his base with the allegations.
After the recent IT raids on Revanth Reddy’s properties, the poll battle for Kodangal definitely will be a sight to watch out for, in Telangana.
