Will Kavitha Kalwakuntla contest from Musheerabad?
There is a strong buzz in the Twin Cities of Hyderabad and Secunderabad that at least one member of the KCR family would contest the upcoming elections to the assembly from anyone of the constituencies under the GHMC. The party's thinking heads are said to be of the strong opinion that this will help in under-cutting the influence of the BjP,which has a strong base in the state capital.

If sources are to be believed, KCR's daughter Kavitha Kalwakuntla would be fielded from Musheerabad constituency. The sources say that KCR had already spoken to Musheerabad's sitting MLA Mutha Gopal. He is said to have told him that he would take care of the interests of the sitting MLA. Mutha Gopal is said to have enthusiastically responded to the proposal.

According to grapevine, KCR initially toyed with the idea of making Kavitha contest from either Kukatpalliy or Serilingampally. However, adverse reports by the survey organisations, which suggested a tough fight, have forced him to zero in on Musheerabad assembly constituency, which has a considerable population of Telanganites.

The BRS feels that the BJP has been growing considerably in the GHMC area and Musheerabad is one place that has been represented by Dr Laxman at least thrice so far. KCR wants to defeat Dr Laxman by putting up his daughter as the candidate from the constituency. As a result, there is every likelihood of the non-descript Musheerabad turning into a hot seat in the assembly elections.
