At one stage, Gaddar announced he would contest against KCR in Gajwel if the Opposition Parties extend support. However, Mahakutami preferred Vanteru Prathap Reddy as its candidate to defeat the TRS Supremo. Prathap Reddy faced defeat contesting against KCR in 2014 Polls by a slight margin.
Congress convinced Gaddar to campaign for its candidate Vanteru Prathap Reddy in Gajwel days before the polling. Certainly, Telugu Balladeer might influence few voters with his campaigning.
Before 2014 Polls, There was strong buzz that Vanteru Prathap Reddy is a winning horse in Gajwel. The situation turned completely after KCR announced he would contest from that constituency. People of Gajwel feel proud that CM of Telangana represents them. So, Defeating such a Leader is going to be almost impossible task.
