Ponnala Lakshmaiah Warns Party About Jangaon Ticket

Amid reports of the Jangaon ticket being given to the coalition partners, the former Telangana Congress President warned the ticket was rightfully his.
Hyderabad | 9th November 2018
Amid reports of denial of the ticket to him in the upcoming elections, former minister and former TPCC President Ponnala Lakshmaiah on Friday said that the ticket for the Jangaon Assembly segment was rightfully his, and that he would contest the election from Jangaon.

Lakshmaiah made these remarks following reports that the seat was likely to be allotted to the grand alliance partners as part of the coalition compulsions.

Commenting on the issue, he said, "I have seen the news reports. If the Jangaon seat is allotted to a Reddy leader from other political parties, it will send a wrong message to the people of the state, especially the BC communities which I belong to. Such a decision will only benefit the TRS in the elections."

The former TPCC President also said that there was a sense of insecurity among the BCs in the state, and that the only way to make them feel secure was to reward them with a good number of seats.

Lakshmaiah's remarks assume importance in the wake of reports that the TJS president Kodandaram is likely to contest from Jangaon. Kodandaram apparently conveyed his intentions to contest the elections from the Jangaon seat to the Congress high command. This has led to speculation that Lakshmaiah might be denied the ticket due to coalition compulsions.

A senior party leader said that the former TPCC President would be sent to the Rajya Sabha if he sacrificed his seat for the TJS. However, neither the Congress nor the TJS has made any official announcement on the issue so far.
