During his recent tour, Nara Lokesh announced Butta Renuka as the TDP candidate for Kurnool Lok Sabha and SV Mohan Reddy as the party's pick for Kurnool Assembly segment in the next elections. This move didn't go down well with TG Venkatesh who is lobbying to obtain Kurnool Assembly Ticket for his son.
While speaking to media persons, The Rajya Sabha MP said: 'I was shocked to know about Nara Lokesh announcing party candidates. Is he a party president to do so? How could candidates be announced in an official programme? May be, SV Mohan Reddy could have hypnotized Lokesh'.
On the other hand, SV Mohan Reddy claimed to be having no rift with TG Venkatesh what-so-ever. He informed, 'When TG Venkatesh was nominated for Rajya Sabha, An agreement has been reached that I would be offered MLA Ticket in the 2019 Elections. That's what Nara Lokesh has announced officially'.
All those Leaders who opposed Nara Lokesh had been either sacked or forced to leave TDP in the past. What would happen in the case of TG?
