Nalgonda: The Komatireddy brothers it can be said, secured three tickets to contest on behalf of the Congress party. Komatireddy Venkat Reddy will fight from Nalgonda seat. He will take on the TRS candidate, Kancharla Bhupal Reddy. It is largely being perceived that Komatireddy would have no problems retaining this seat.

Komatireddy Rajagopal Reddy will contest the Munugode seat on a Congress ticket and will seek to ward off the challenge posed by Kusukuntla Prabhaker Reddy of the TRS, who won the seat in 2014, defeating an independent candidate, Palvai Sravanthi, daughter of veteran Congressman, Palvai Goverdhan Reddy, who represented Munugode earlier.

A close associate of the Komatireddy brothers, Chirumarthi Lingaiah can now breathe easy after getting the Congress ticket Nakrekal (SC) seat. Earlier, Lingaiah and the Komatireddy brothers expressed their unhappiness at speculative reports in the media that Nakrekal had been allocated to Telangana Inti Party as a part of seat-sharing.

Once a close associate of KCR in the Telangana movement,  Dr. Cheruku Sudhakar founded Telangana Inti party on June 02, 2017, the state formation day. Komatireddy brothers insisted that the Nakrekal ticket be given to Chirmarthi Lingaiah, who will take on Vemula Veeresham of the TRS. The TRS candidate is battling a strong anti-incumbency sentiment, according to many locals. Interestingly, Veeresham, riding a TRS wave, had defeated Lingaiah by a slender majority of 2,370 votes in the 2014 elections.

Expressing happiness of getting in the 1st list of the Congress candidates , Komatireddy Venkat Reddy said that the Congress High Command has been extremely cautious in issuing tickets this time.

Venkat Reddy was pleased with the developments and said that the manner in which the Congress party and its top leaders, Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi have allocated seats, points to a certain win for the Grand Alliance in the state of Telangana. Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi's scheduled visit to the state for campaigning, would infuse great energy and enthusiasm in the party workers and the people itself.

Chirumarthi Lingaiah, on his part, expressed his deepest gratitude to the Komatireddy brothers for ensuring that he was given the Nakrekal ticket.
