It seems that KCR, who had guaranteed tickets for all in the upcoming assembly elections, has now reconsidered. Reportedly, in order to avoid dissidence against the government led by KCR, sitting MLAs are being ignored when it comes to ticket allocation.
It appears that around 25 to 30 TRS MLAs are likely to be excluded from the contest in the next general elections in Telangana. While TRS won 88 seats in the 2018 election, 15 MLAs who won from other parties joined the ruling party, increasing the strength of TRS to 103. It is reported that one-fourth of them may not secure a seat in the upcoming elections.
There is deep dissatisfaction among the people, especially towards some MLAs, regarding the lack of loan waivers for farmers, the non-provision of double-bedroom houses, issues with the Dharani portal, pending bills, and the unresolved employee issues.
It is said that KCR has made the decision to exclude certain MLAs and is waiting for the right time, as revealing the list now could potentially lead to a revolt among the sitting MLAs. Additionally, it appears that three sitting MLAs in Karimnagar district may face difficulty in obtaining a ticket. One MLA each in Nizamabad, Adilabad, Ranga Reddy, Mahabubnagar, and joint Khammam districts, as well as one or two in Medak, and two sitting MLAs in Warangal district, are already on the elimination list according to reports.
