Revanth said he received information from some important sources that three key leaders in Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao’s cabinet will be not given opportunity to contest in Assembly elections. Irrigation Minister T Harish Rao, Deputy Chief Minister K Srihari and Finance minister E Rajendar will be sent to Lok Sabha in 2019 elections.
“KCR is preparing ground to clear all hurdles to his son and IT minister KT Rama Rao to become next Chief Minister. KCR considered Harish is a big competitor to KTR. The other two senior leaders and ministers Rajender and Srihari were also not cordial. The TRS is of the view that three leaders will also strong following and win Lok Sabha MP seats easily”, said Revanth.
KCR wanted to retain all 12 Lok Sabha seats in 2019 elections which will help him to play a key role at Centre post 2019 elections. Sending the three senior leaders to Parliament will help KCR to serve the political purpose, Revanth explained.
