However, both leaders apparently agreed to drop from the contest if one of them got ticket. Signaling their readiness to contest from Munugode, the siblings have already convened meetings with Congress activists in Munugode, Nampally and Chandur mandals. While the constituency in-charge Palvai Govardhan Reddy, who is also representing Upper House, is making efforts to field his daughter Sravanti Reddy in the polls. However, Komatireddy brothers leaving no stone unturned to thwart his plans. The constituency is a bastion for Govardhan Reddy, a six-time MLA and former minister. In spite of Govardhan Reddy's might in the constituency, the brothers are doling out sops to Congress cadre to garner their support. During his speeches, Rajagopal Reddy heaping praise on late Chief Minister YS Rajasekhara Reddy and Congress president Sonia Gandhi to attract voters. But Venkat Reddy is trying to explain people about the reasons that led him to sacrifice his ministerial post for Telangana cause. Political analysts feel that Rajagopal Reddy took decision to contest from Munugode as he failed to maintain good relationships with the MLAs of Bhongir, Alair, Janagam, Tungaturthy, Munugode and Ibrahimpatnam in his Lok Sabha constituency. Meanwhile, Suryapet MLA Ramreddy Damodar Reddy's son Sarvottam Reddy is planning to make his political debut by contesting as Congress MP candidate from Bhongir segment in the ensuing elections. Apparently shocked with Komatireddy brothers moves, Govardhan Reddy openly asked them to focus on their constituencies instead of Munugode. He also accused them of being coverts to YSRCP chief YS Jaganmohan Reddy. The MP alleges that the brothers had amassed huge wealth after bagging contracts by blackmailing the state government. While the speculation is rife that Congress would not give tickets to them in upcoming elections, the brothers are apparently contemplating to field their NRI brother Komatireddy Anil Reddy from Munugode on behalf of YSRCP.
