EC had to hold elections before November to the constituency, as Uttam Kumar Reddy, sitting MLA won as Nalgonda MP and decided to continue as MP.
TRS has been eyeing the seat from few months and they have been planning to give it to Kalvakuntla Kavitha, who lost in elections previously.
Congress is looking to win the seat again while BJP is staying away from this constituency. EC might have been acting according to BJP's plans, we are not sure.
