Hyderabad: Adding more fuel to the speculation over possible candidates for Lok Sabha elections, TRS supremo and Telangana chief minister K Chandrashekhar Rao has indicated that some senior leaders didn’t get berths in the Cabinet because of forth coming Parliament elections. This statement has almost confirmed that T Harish Rao, former minister and nephew of KCR, will be a Lok Sabha candidate most probably from Medak constituency, said a source.
“Few of our senior leaders didn’t ministries in the latest expansion of the state Cabinet. We’re going for Lok Sabha elections in two or three months. That’s the reason, they (some senior leaders) didn’t get berths in the Cabinet,” said KCR.
The chief minister has advised his new Cabinet ministers to work hard and sincerely to earn good name and credibility for the TRS government.
KCR is keen on Khammam and Mahabubabad Lok Sabha constituencies as TRS lagged in some segments during the Assembly elections. “We’ll bridge these gaps in Khammam and Mahabubabad Lok Sabha constituencies. The list of candidates for 16 Lok Sabha constituencies will be announced soon. Party working president KT Rama Rao will coordinate the Lok Sabha elections along with ministers, MPs and MLAs. We’ll bag all the five MLC seats and the process has begun,” remarked KCR.
TRS is confident of winning MLC from teachers and graduates’ constituencies. The candidates will be chosen based on an internal survey.
