Many Aspirants for K-A-N-M Graduates MLC Seat

The seat is represented by the Chairman of the Telangana Legislative Council V Swamy Goud, and will fall vacant when his term expires in March.
Hyderabad | 28th January 2019
There is plenty of interest around the Karimnagar, Adilabad, Nizamabad and Medak graduates' MLC seat in the state.

The seat is represented by the Chairman of the Telangana State Legislative Council V Swamy Goud, and will fall vacant when the term of Goud expires in March this year. Keeping this in mind, the Election Commission of India is planning to issue a notification to hold elections for the seat in February.

There are already several contenders for the post as reports of incumbent MLC Swamy Goud opting out of the fray are doing the rounds in the political corridors. TRS sources are saying that Goud may be fielded from one of the Lok Sabha constituencies in the state in the upcoming Parliament elections. With this, the former MLC for the seat and senior journalist R Satyanarayana is trying to contest for the seat again. He has already urged the party leadership to extend support to his candidature.

Satyanarayana, who became MLC in 2007, quit his post following a call given by TRS president K Chandrashekar Rao and actively took part in the Telangana statehood agitation. He later sought the party ticket for the Karimnagar Assembly seat but failed to get it for various reasons. TRS party leaders Harish Rao and others promised to reward him with a good post in future, and this made him continue in the party.

In the bye-elections held in 2008, TRS candidate Naradasu Laxman Rao won the MLC seat. Later, in the next elections held in 2013, the present MLC Swamy Goud won the seat, and even became the Chairman of the Legislative Council.

Satyanarayana is not unopposed, however - the Secretary of Telangana Private Educational Institutions Yadagiri Rao, the Mayor of Karimnagar Municipal Corporation Sardar Ravinder Singh, former TNGOs leader Hameed and P Devender Rao are all also expecting the support of the TRS for the MLC seat.

Although the elections for the graduates' seats are intended to be held in an apolitical manner, key political parties in the state field their candidates to have a majority in the upper house of the state legislature.
