After discussing the upcoming MLC elections (MLA quota) with senior party MLAs, Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee president Uttam Kumar Reddy has formed a nine-member sub-committee with the following leaders to submit recommendations for who should be the party's nominee:
The sub-committee will meet on Monday and make its recommendation for potential MLC candidates.
For the uninitiated, elections will be held for five Telangana Legislative Council seats on March 12. These seats are all from the MLAs quota, and are falling vacant due to the expiry of the terms of Shabbir Ali, Mahmood Ali, Ponguleti Sudhakar Reddy, T Santhosh Kumar and Mohammed Salim.
The TRS has the numbers to win four of them, and the Congress has a chance in the fifth, which the TRS has left for its ally the MIM.
