These two leaders have always maintained "political distance". But "social distancing" has now brought them together. Yes... these two arch rivals are now working together.
They kept away from one another and were in different parties before joining the TRS. One of them was a minister in the earlier government. He contested and lost the 2018 elections, while his rival, who bested him, had later joined the TRS. Despite being in the same party, the two leaders were competing with one another on everything. The defeated minister is now an MLC. He is Mahender Reddy, while the other is Pilot Rohit Reddy, who is Tandur MLA. They have always been at loggerheads, but thanks to Corona, they are now working together. They are together moving in the constituency and are providing food and relief to the poor migrant workers.
Their coming together has become a hot top not just in Tandur assembly constituency but also in the whole former Rangareddy district. Many are quipping that these two arch rivals have now come together thanks to the social distancing.
