    The political scene in Mahabubnagar is heating up as three BJP leaders, DKAruna, Shanti Kumar, and Jitender Reddy, are all competing for the BJP Mahabubnagar parliament ticket. This competition within the party is expected to be intense as the leaders position themselves for the important nomination.

    DK Aruna, the national vice president of the party, is seen as the frontrunner for the BJP Mahabubnagar parliament ticket. However, she faces tough competition from AP Jitender Reddy, which adds an interesting twist to the race. Another candidate to watch out for is Shanti Kumar, the BJP State treasurer, who is reportedly doing everything possible to secure the sought-after ticket.

    Sources say that Shanti Kumar has been aspiring to contest from Mahabubnagar for a long time. In the previous assembly elections, he faced several obstacles in his attempt to secure an MLA ticket, as Jitender Reddy was a former MP in Mahabubnagar and DK Aruna’s MLA ticket was given to a BC candidate in Gadwal. Even in Jadcherla, Shanti Kumar faced tough competition from senior BJP leader Chittaranjan Das.

    Despite previous setbacks, Shanti Kumar is said to be intensifying his efforts to secure the Mahabubnagar BJP Parliament ticket. On the other hand, Aruna, who graciously gave up her MLA ticket for a BC candidate, is determined to retain the BJP parliament ticket from Mahabubnagar for the upcoming Lok Sabha Election.

    Shanti Kumar recently stated during a program in the Jadcherla constituency that he expects to secure the Mahabubnagar Lok Sabha ticket this time. He hopes that both DK Aruna and Jitender Reddy will consider sacrificing the ticket for a BC candidate like him, considering that Mahabubnagar district has a BC population of over 60%.

    As Aruna and Jitender Reddy have previously contested as MPs from Mahabubnagar, Shanti Kumar is hopeful that the BJP high command will choose him and give him the opportunity to showcase his strengths in the upcoming electoral battle. The competition within the BJP in Mahabubnagar is shaping up to be a political drama filled with intrigue and suspense as the contenders vie for the party’s approval.
