According to the reports, the Congress High Command wants to rope in Konda Surekha as the candidate and they are likely to announce it on August 18th. It is all known knowledge that Konda Surekha is one of the strongest BC leaders.

Etela Rajender and Gellu Srinivas Yadav also belong to BC Community. Congress might have been planning to finalize Konda Surekha so that she can give tough competition to the other candidates.
