Gajwel elections: K Chandrashekhar Rao ‘KCR’ vs Vanteru Pratap Reddy

Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao, or KCR as he is popularly known, faces a tough challenge in his home constituency of Gajwel where he is squaring off against TDP-backed ‘Mahakutami’ or ‘Grand Alliance’ candidate Vantaru Pratap Reddy. While the arithmetic appears to be favouring Reddy following the alliance, the perception is said to be in KCR’s favour. In the last election, KCR had defeated Reddy by a margin of 19,000 votes. While KCR had polled 86,000 votes, Reddy bagged 67,000 votes.

The small town of Gajwel is located in Mewat district, about 75 kilometres from Telangana’s capital Hyderabad. However, the chief minister has not campaigned much here, a News 18 report says.

Gajwel election result: Winner of Gajwel constituency in 2018, KALVAKUNTLA CHANDRASHEKAR RAO.

While KCR is undeniably the most popular politician in present-day Telangana, he is facing a potent challenge from the Mahakutami this time. His opponent, Pratap Reddy, had contested on a TDP ticket last time, the Congress had fielded Tumkunta Narsa Reddy who polled 34,000 votes. Together, the Congress and TDP candidates had polled 1,01,000 votes, a number way higher than the votes polled by KCR.

KCR supporters claim that a victory for him is a done deal and there’s no need for the chief minister to come here and campaign. However, the proposed Mallanna Sagara reservoir project near Gajwel has become a big issue in the constituency and affects nearly 10,000 voters. The villagers who are set to be displaced in case the project gets passed are reportedly angry with TRS and may vote against KCR.
