Congress MP and state unit president Revanth Reddy stirred the discussion by asserting that Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao’s genetic origins trace back to Bihar rather than Telangana.

BRS emerged victorious in that election, defeating both the BJP and Congress. However, with the leader’s return, the dynamics have changed.
Additionally, the return of Vivek Venkataswamy, former BJP Manifesto committee head and son of ex-Congress Union Minister G Venkataswamy, to the Congress is seen as a noteworthy development. A senior leader remarked that the comeback of the former Munugode MLA reflects the ‘climate change’ in Telangana politics.
Congress had contested 99 seats and won 19 with a vote share of 28.43 per cent. However, 14 of them switched allegiance to BRS and BJP.
Despite the challenges, Congress poll managers exude confidence in achieving a stronger performance and potentially surpassing BRS in the upcoming elections. This optimism persists even as BRS marks a decade in power since the formation of Telangana.
