TRS leader Gutha Sukhender Reddy, who has been declared as the party's candidate for election for the MLC seat under the MLAs' quota by Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao, will be elected unopposed if the Opposition fails to field a candidate.
The Congress, in all probability, is likely to bow out of the fray as it does not have enough members to win the seat. If the Congress decides to not contest the elections, Reddy will be elected unopposed.
KCR had declared Sukhender Reddy as the TRS candidate in order to fulfil his promise made before the recent Lok Sabha elections. Reddy wanted to contest for the Nalgonda MP seat. However he was denied the ticket by the CM. Instead, KCR promised Reddy that he would make him an MLC under the MLAs' quota. This had pacified the veteran politician.
The MLC seat fell vacant after the disqualification of former MLC K Yadavs Reddy from the seat after he switched over to the Congress.
