TRS president and Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao on Sunday announced the names of party candidates for the Legislative Council. A notification has been issued for three seats under the MLAs quota, one seat each for the Teachers’ Constituency and Local Bodies. There are two seats to be filled under the Governor’s quota.
Under the MLAs quota, the TRS candidates are Vullolla Gangadhar Goud, Alimineti Krishna Reddy and Mynampalli Hanumantha Rao. The Chief Minister has also finalised the names of D Rajeshwar Rao and Farooq Hussain under the Governor’s quota. Krishna Reddy has been with the TRS for a long time and was the chairman of the party disciplinary committee. He had played an active role in the agitation for separate state.
With this, for the ensuing MLC elections to seven seats, two were given to the Muslims, two to Reddy Community, one each to the Christians, Velamas and BCs. Though the name of CM’s political secretary Subhash Reddy has been considered for the MLC seat, he could not be accommodated in the last minute, party sources said.
The MLC candidates under the MLAs’ quota will file their nominations on Tuesday. Home Minister Naini Narasimha Reddy, Municipal Administration Minister K Tarakarama Rao and TRSLP secretary Madati Ramesh Reddy will act as coordinators for the MLC polls.
