Minister Nara Lokesh created a flutter among the already differing Telugu Desam Party (TDP) leaders in Kurnool. As a part of his tour of the district, Nara Lokesh announced that on behalf of the party, Butta Renuka will contest as MP and S.V.Mohan Reddy will contest as MLA from Kurnool. This announcement has sent shock waves among present party MP from the region, T.G.Venkatesh supporters. Venkatesh planned to launch his son this time as MLA. There a lot of differences among the party leaders over the issue. Lokesh's statement added fuel to fire.
