    The battle lines are drawn for the Warangal Lok Sabha (SC Reserved) seat with the BRS announcing Dr M Sudheer Kumar, Hanumakonda Zilla Parishad chairman, as its candidate on Friday. It took some time for BRS to finalize its candidate after Dr Kavya refused to contest on the pink party ticket.

    BRS chief K Chandrasekhar Rao has been looking for a strong candidate to face the Congress’ Dr Kadiyam Kavya and the BJP’s Aroori Ramesh. Almost all BRS leaders in the Warangal district supported Sudheer who has been with the party since 2001.
