Former Minister Konda Surekha is likely to be the Congress candidate for the upcoming Huzurabad bypolls. The party leadership is keen on fielding Konda Surekha as the contestant as she is one of the most experienced politicians and can counter opponents' claims in the campaign. It is also said that she would give tough competition to the other leaders.
According to the reports, Konda Surekha has kept a couple of conditions to the high command. It is said that if she contests in the Huzurabad bypolls then another seat from Warangal East should be given to the other member of her family; the party should bear the total expenditure to be incurred on the upcoming Huzurabad byelections.
Konda Surekha's husband Konda Murali made sensational comments on Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao. Recalling his experience in working TRS in the past, Konda Murali said that KCR had spent nearly Rs 500 crore to defeat Konda Surekha in the last 2018 elections and now he is spending thousands of crores to defeat Etela Rajender.
He recalled that once he went to meet KCR and didn't remove his shoes; as a result, KCR took revenge on him. He made strong comments that the leaders from the TRS are working as slaves to the KCR. He also criticized Warangal Corporators. He expressed anguish that many corporators have urged him for the tickets but now they cheated him.
