Union Labour Minister, Bandaru Dattatreya was asked to resign and he submitted his resignation as well. He is likely to be sent as Governor to some state. In that case, by-election becomes imminent for Secunderabad Loksabha Position.
In such case, Senior BJP leaders Kishan Reddy or Muralidhara Rao may contest there. We are told that TRS will not contest in the by-election, according to the understanding with BJP. In such case, it is like both the parties have announced their alliance plan.
BJP is unlikely to win if TRS is in the fray. On the other side, there are rumours that Dattatreya will be made Governor only before 2019 elections to avoid the by-election. A clarity on this will emerge after the Union Cabinet Expansion tomorrow.
