Things started taking pace in Telangana politics with the Dubbaka by-polls phase. In a recent development, KCR-led TRS government on Friday announced the finalised list of three nominated Members of the Legislative Council (MLC) under the Governor’s quota.
The move came hours after the Chief Minister and party chief KCR called for a cabinet meeting which has cleared the names and sent them to Governor Tamilisai Soundararajan for approval. Popular lyricist and folk singer Goreti Venkanna, Basavaraju Saraiah and Dayanand Gupta are the three names approved by the cabinet.
It can be recalled that MLCs fell vacant following completion of the term of Nayani Narsimha Reddy and Karne Prabhakar a few months ago and another seat disqualification of Ramulu Naik after joining Congress. It is now in the court of Governor to approve the candidates.
