Telangana TDP leader L Ramana stated that he would not contest the elections, but would strive for the victory of the Mahakootami candidates.
Speaking to mediapersons, Ramana said that he would work for the victory of Congress candidate Jeevan Reddy in his home constituency Jagtial.
For the uninitiated, Ramana was first elected to the Assembly from Jagtial in 1994 on a TDP ticket, and held the seat five times.
The TDP leader said that his main aim was to defeat and end the "dictatorial TRS rule", and that being an MLA was much less important.
Ramana also alleged that Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao was distributing Rs 1,000 crores to win the elections.
Participating later in the campaigning for Jeevan Reddy, Ramana reiterated his confidence that the Mahakootami would emerge victorious in the December 7 elections and that KCR would be defeated. Despite the differences among the grand alliance partners, they were going to achieve their aim of forming the next government in Telangana, he claimed.
