Meanwhile, the Congress party has finalized the names of its candidates for the by-elections to the Council seats. Komatreddy Lakshmi Reddy will be the candidate from Nalgonda, Enugula Venkatram Reddy from Warangal and Kommareddy Uday Mohan Reddy from Rangareddy seats.
By-elections at two constituencies were necessitated due to the resignation of sitting members, Patnam Narender Reddy (Rangareddy) and Kotatireddy Rajagopal Reddy (Nalgonda) following their election as MLAs. At the third seat, it was due to Konda Muralidhar Rao (Warangal) having to vacate it after he left TRS to join Congress.
It may be noted that Nalgonda candidate Lakshmi is the wife of Komatireddy Rajagopal Reddy.
