Tough times for Erabelli Dayakar Rao?
When you think of Palakurthy assembly constituency in Warangal district, the name of Errabelli Dayakar Rao readily comes to mind. He has been representing the constituency through thick and thin, first as TDP leader and then as a TRS candidate. He is currently a key minister in the KCR government and is playing an important role in the Warangal district politics.

However, things do not seem to be going smoothly for this veteran politician this time. There is anti-incumbency in the constituency and the youth particularly appear to want a change. Though Dayakar Rao has an enviable track record in Palakurthy because of his wide contacts and history of public service, the ride could be bumpy in the upcoming elections, say sources.

The Congress this time is likely to give ticket to NRI doctor Jhansi Reddy. Jhansi Reddy and her husband A Rajender Reddy are quite popular because of their social work and philanthropy. They have also set up a 30-bd hospital for the locals. Their trust has been working among the poor and the marginalized sections in the constituency. If all goes well, she could be made the party candidate this time.

If this is done, several local level leaders could switch sides and might even work against Rao. Not just that, the Congress could bury its groupism and could give Errabelli Dayakar Rao a run for his money. Several party workers too are unhappy with the working style of Errabelli Dayakar Rao. Jhansi Reddy is likely to capitalize on these chinks in the BRS armour, say political watchers.
