Generally, National Parties refrain from announcing CM Candidate prior to the Assembly Polls. Rahul Gandhi has done the same in the case of Telangana Elections as well. He made it clear that the primary objective is to dethrone KCR from power and only then CM Candidate would be finalized.
Pointing out that TRS backed anti-people decisions such as Demonetisation and GST which gave scope for massive corruption, Rahul Gandhi stressed the need to defeat KCR and Modi. He assured Congress would fulfill the aspirations of Telangana People.
Most likely, Congress Leadership and TDP Leadership could prefer Revanth Reddy as Chief Minister if Mahakutami forms the government.
