Initially, KCR considered the candidature of Naveen Rao for Malkajgiri Lok Sabha Segment. To everyone's surprise, Rajasekhar Reddy has been preferred in the end.
Who is Rajasekhar Reddy? He is the Son-in-Law of Telangana Minister Malla Reddy and also the chairman of educational institutions. Malla Reddy promised to take the responsibility of victory in Malkajgiri Constituency if his Son-in-Law is preferred. After the confirmation of Revanth Reddy's candidature for Malkajgiri, KCR replaced Naveen Rao with Rajasekhar Reddy because he is financially sound and could have better winning chances.
If he faces defeat in Lok Sabha Polls as well, The image of Revanth Reddy gets damaged further. So, 2019 Lok Sabha Elections would be very crucial for the Firebrand Leader.
