Khammam: YSR Congress Telangana president and Khammam MP Ponguleti Srinivas Reddy said that his party was ready to let a member from departed MLA Ramreddy Venkat Reddy's family get elected unopposed from his Palair Assembly seat. Addressing party activists meeting here on Wednesday, the MP said that the tradition of ensuring election unopposed if a vacancy caused due to the death of a sitting legislator was followed only during the regime of former Chief Minister YS Rajasekhara Reddy.

“However, the present day politics are different,” he added. “If all the major parties agree to come forward to support the family member of Ramreddy Venkat Reddy, the YSRC will welcome it. Otherwise, we will try tooth and nail to win the Palair seat,” Reddy clarified. Referring to the speculation that he may change loyalties to ruling TRS, Reddy ruled out any such plans. “If any such necessity arises, I will take the permission of each and every activist of the party,” the MP said.
