Hyderabad, Sept 1 (Hydnow): Khairatabad, one of the important Assembly constituencies in the heart of the City, will witness a triangular fight among three major parties, including the BRS, Congress, and BJP. with incumbent Danam Nagender’s name cleared by the party to contest, the late P. Janardhan Reddy’s daughter P.Vijaya Reddy (local corporator) an active politician, remains the top contender from the congress, while former MLA and party senior Chintala Ramchandra Reddy is most likely to be given another chance to reclaim the seat for the BJP.
Khairatabad, which is a segment of the Secunderabad Lok Sabha constituency, has a total of 2,82,101 voters, including 1,34,862 women, as per the latest voter list (draft) published on August 21 by the Election Commission. With a sizable migrant population from AP in the constituency and some mixed population of both rich and slum dwellers, it reflects the typical Telangana mix-up.
This Assembly election will be witnessing an interesting contest this time as the Congress is likely to field Vijaya Reddy, the third daughter of PJR, a leader of the masses and one of the important leaders of Congress from yesteryears, who is still remembered for his welfare activities. However, her prospects of getting the ticket may be denied if her history of shifting loyalties to different parties is considered. She joined the congress after leaving TRS last year and contested from YSRCP in 2014. Khairatabad unit president Rohin Reddy is another aspirant from the constituency, who could get a chance if loyalty to the party is taken into consideration.
Chintala is to repeat 2014 if the party clears his name. While Chintala enjoys clout in the party and in the constituency, despite top contenders from the party like youth leader Pallapu Govardhan, who this year scored politically from the Filmnagar land episode involving the incumbent, analysts believe Chintala is the best bet to defeat Nagender, in 2014 Chintala defeated sitting MLA Nagender by over 20,000 majority and received 37.3 percent of vote share (53,102), while nagender who contested on congress tickets got 32,256 votes and Vijaya Reddy (YSRCP) secured 20,845 votes.
