Chevella parliament seat is witnessing one of the most interesting battles in the recent years as two prime contenders fielded rich businessmen in the fray. The sitting MP Konda Vishweshwar Reddy this time contesting in Congress ticket, while the TRS fielded the Business Tycoon Ranjith Reddy as their choice. BJP and BSP candidates are also in the fray but they are unlikely to show their presence seriously. The constituency is spread across previous congress bastions like Maheshwaram and Chevella but all the MLAs including former Home minister Sabitha Indra Reddy defected to the TRS after the selection of Vishweshwar reddy as its nominee by Congress. initially Sabitha tried ticket for her son Karthik Reddy but a third alternative was brought in the form of Ranjith Reddy . Chevella assembly seat comprises Maheshwaram, Chevella, Tandur, Rajendranagar, Parigi, Sheri Lingam Palli and Vikarabad constituencies as its arts. Till date the Congress is representing the Thandur seat and the former minister Mahender Reddy was defeated here by Congress MLA Pilot Rohith Reddy. Vishweshwar Reddy is giving a stiff challenge to the TRS man here and he is banking wholly in his family influences in this part.
