Telangana Telugu Desam Party (TTDP) is likely to select Nama Nageswara Rao as it's candidate, for bypoll to Paleru Assembly constituency. The party did not show much interest until yesterday. But as soon as TRS selected Thummala, it brought it's own candidate to the forefront. The left parties are fielding CPM district secretary Kokineni Sudarshan as their joint candidate. Congress believes that it will win sympathy votes by selecting someone from Ram Reddy Venkat Reddy's kin.
