KCRs favourite 4 may not get party tickets?
Is KCR going to dump the four MLAs, who were part of the sting operation that claimed that the BJP had offered them largesse if they leave the TRS? These four MLAs - Pilot Rohit Reddy of Tandur, Kollapur's Harshavardhan Reddy, Achampet's Guvvala Balaraju and Pinapaka's Rega Kantha Rao - may not get party tickets this time, say highly placed sources.

These four MLAs claimed that that the BJP had send emissaries with an offer. The BRS boss made much of this and launched a publicity blitzkrieg against the BJP. He even kept these four MLAs in his Pragathi Bhavan for days and then provided protection to them so that no one approaches them. He called them his best MLAs. However, things appear to have changed a lot since then.

These MLAs appear to be no longer finding favour of KCR. He had not given an appointment to either of the MLAs in recent times. Not just that. Survey after survey in these four constituencies is showing that the popularity graph of the MLAs is plummeting. To add to their woes, they are not on friendly terms with their respective MPs.

All is not well between Rohit Reddy and MP Patnam Mahender Reddy. MPs supporters have openly declared that they would work to defeat Rohit Reddy if he is made the party candidate again. Similarly, Harshavardhan Reddy too is on a weak wicket. As for Guvvala Balaraju, the unanimous opinion in the constituency is that he is inaccessible. Rega Kantha Rao this time around, will have to face a strong rival in Payam Venkateswarlu, who would be backed by Ponguleti Srinivas Reddy.
