The ruling party in Telangana has chosen Marri Rajasekhar Reddy for the biggest Lok Sabha constituency – Malkajgiri. Reddy is state Labour and Employment Minister Chamakura Malla Reddy’s son-in-law. Malla Reddy has remained a representative of the constituency and is currently the MLA-elect of the Medchal segment.
