Uttam Kumar Reddy had represented Huzurnagar in the last assembly and had won from the same constituency in the 2018 polls. However, the party had asked him to contest for the Nalgonda Lok Sabha seat and he had registered a victory in the elections. Later, he resigned the MLA post thus necessitating a bypoll. He has on Wednesday announced at a meeting of party elders in Nakkagudem village that his wife and former MLA Padmavathi would contest from Huzurnagar.
This led Revanth Reddy to react and criticise Uttam Kumar Reddy. Uttam and Revanth are not getting on well for quite some time. Revanth has criticised Uttam's decisions in the past too. Meanwhile, the ruling TRS is said to be mulling over making KCR's daughter Kalwakuntla Kavitha its candidate for the Huzurabad bypoll.
