KCR, the leader of the BRS party, will announce the first list of around 50 party candidates for the upcoming Assembly elections on Monday. He has informed party leaders about their candidature and told them to start working. Many current ministers and other officials will be retained for the third consecutive time.
KCR has given priority to sitting members of the state Assembly. However, in places where there is conflict between new and old leaders, he has decided to change the candidate. For example, in Tandur, there is a conflict between MLA Pilot Rohit Reddy and MLC Patnam Mahender Reddy, and KCR has chosen Rohit Reddy.
The list of candidates includes KCR (Gajwel), KTR (Sircilla), T Harish Rao (Siddipet), and many others. In the city limits, candidates like Ch Malla Reddy (Medchal) and Arikepudi Gandhi (Serilingampally) have been finalized. In other areas, candidates like V Srinivas Goud (Mahbubnagar) and D Vinay Bhaskar (Warangal West) have been chosen.
Overall, KCR is focusing on retaining current members while also resolving conflicts between leaders in certain areas.
