TG Venkatesh has proved that he gets what he wants. From the beginning, he wanted his son TG Bharat to be given party ticket for Kurnool Assembly seat. He did not yield to any pressure. Strong and loyal TDP leader like SV Mohan Reddy too wanted the ticket and got an assurance from Chandrababu that his loyalty would be rewarded. Despite this, TG stuck to his guns and said his son should be given the ticket. He had even sent veiled threats to the TDP leadership. All these seem to have worked.
Despite still competition an strong contenders, the Chandrababu Naidu has finally given the Kurnool Assembly constituency ticket to TG Bharat only. SV was asked to make way for Bharat. SV has strong support from Nara Lokesh, but it did not work. He had to back off from the contest. In return, SV was promised MLC post.
The reason for Chandrababu's decision is TG's assurance that he would get his son emerge victorious in the polls. He assured that there would be no dearth of resources. He even told the TDP leadership that he would take care of Kotla Suryaprakash Reddy's Lok Sabha election expenses. This seems to have worked on Chandrababu Naidu.
