Senior leaders from Congress Party, who desire to introduce their sons and daughters as party candidates in upcoming Telangana Assembly elections before taking retirement from the politics, have been facing troubles due to the conditions imposed by the party’s high command.
While few leaders want to give political path to their successors, the high command of the Congress party strictly issued instructions on single ticket to each family and no exemptions except few who are already won in the previous elections.

Mr. Karthik Reddy is already moving pawns in Rajendranagar by launching campaign with his cadre and delivering speeches at colonies to attract both the mass and class people. Mr. Karthik Reddy fought against the GO-111 which restricts multi-storied constructions at the radius of 15 kilometer from Usman Sagar (Gandipate) and Himayath Sagar lakes and partially got succeeded with the National Green Tribunal, which led a good publicity and hopes on him among the voters from the villages under the jurisdiction of Rajendranagar segment.
