    The decision to induct a minister just three months before the Assembly elections raised concerns. Mahender Reddy had threatened to quit the party when his political rival and sitting MLA Pilot Rohit Reddy was announced as the candidate for the Tandoor Assembly constituency. He was planning to join the Congress, but KCR offered him a ministerial position in order to prevent any potential losses for the party in the elections. Mahender Reddy has previously served as a minister in KCR’s government.
