Hyderabad, Sept.23 (NSS): The mother of the first martyr of second separate Telangana state agitation Srikantha Chari and ruling TRS Party Leader Kasoju shankaramma is likely to contest from huzurnagar Assembly constituency as BJP candidate. She is likely to join the BJP to contest the elections.
She contested as the TRS party candidate in the 2014 assembly elections but lost at the hands of TPCC President N. Uttam Kumar Reddy. She was denied the party ticket in the 2018 assembly elections by the ruling party. The party high command had fielded NRI S. Saidi Reddy from the Huzurnagar seat in the last assembly elections. This has prompted her to keep a distance from the party activities. The chief minister of the state and the TRS party president has once again decided to field the same defeated candidate of the party, Saidi reddy, from the same seat.
