TRS President and Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao today announced the names of the party candidates for the two Rajya Sabha seats coming up for election in Telangana.
The CM declared TRS Parliamentary Party leader Dr K Keshava Rao and former united AP Assembly speaker K R Suresh Reddy as the party's nominees.
The two candidates will file their nominations on Friday.
Both Rao and Reddy thanked the Chief Minister for deciding on their candidature. The Chief Minister in turn congratulated both of them.
Apart from the two candidates nominated, many TRS seniors aspired for the RS seats. Ponguleti Srinivas Reddy from Khammam and Nayani Narasimha Reddy from Hyderabad were among them. It was also speculated that KCR's daughter and former Lok Sabha member K Kavitha, who was defeated in the last Lok Sabha election, might be selected for one of the seats.
