    In the upcoming election, the Amberpet constituency will see a tough contest between the BJP and the BRS. The contenders list has been released by the BRS, and the pink party has chosen Kaleru Venkatesh as their candidate. G Kishan Reddy from the BJP and senior leader V Hanumantha Rao from the Congress are also aspiring for the party ticket.

    In the previous election, there was a close fight between the BRS and the BJP. The BRS MLA Venkatesh won by just 1,016 votes, with Kishan Reddy trailing behind. The Congress has not been able to win the seat and has remained a vocal critic. Kishan Reddy first contested the Assembly polls in 2004 and got elected. He was the only MLA for his party at that time. After the delimitation of constituencies, he was subsequently elected to the Assembly from Amberpet in 2009 and 2014.

    Venkatesh started his political journey with the Congress and served as a corporator of Golnaka. Later, he joined the pink party and became its leader. He was elected as an MLA in 2018.

    The BRS leaders in Amberpet recently made headlines for openly fighting in public. Venkatesh and Golnaka corporator Dusari Lavanya, along with her husband Dusari Srinivas Goud, got into an argument which escalated into a quarrel between their supporters. For veteran Hanumantha Rao, this is his home turf. He is likely to sway the votes of BCs and squatters. Political analysts predict challenges for both the BRS and the BJP. The AMIM might also enter the field to increase their party’s seats in this election.

The AMIM might also enter the field to increase their party’s seats. The constituency has a diverse population with different socio-economic backgrounds.
