Kiran Kumar Reddy resigned as the chief minister protesting the formation and formed a party of his own, Chandrababu Naidu suddenly started playing with the idea behind the newly-formed state, but KCR maintained his pro-Telangana stand.
The Lok Sabha elections are to be held in Andhra Pradesh tomorrow and it is yet unknown which direction the results will take, especially when BJP has entered the scene with an alliance in Telangana.
Medak is to go on polls tomorrow, from where KCR is contesting this time. In 2009, he had fought from Mahbubnagar and had topped the chart in his constituency with 366,569 votes.
A member of the 15th Lok Sabha of India, he is a member of Parliament from the Mahaboobnagar constituency of Telangana.
KCR, as he known, entered politics with the youth congress party in Medak district, under the flagship of Sanjay Gandhi in 1970.
He was a part of the TDP in 1983, but later separated to firm an independent party TRS, complaining that the politicians were suppressed. He served as the Deputy Speaker and TDP MLA of the party and had also contested against A. Madan Mohan and lost that election.
He formed the TRS in 2001.
Other members fighting against him in the Medak constituency include Chaganla Narendra Nath (BJP), Y. Shankar Goud (BSP), Dr.P. Shravan Kumar Reddy (INC), Iqbal Ali Zafar (MBT), Kompelli Prabhudas RPI(A), Prabhugoud, Pullaiahgari (YSRCP), Bomma Balesham (PPOI), and others.
Analysis: KCR's win have high chances, given that this is his birthplace and that he is the mastermind behind the formation of Telangana.
