AP Minister Nara Lokesh during his tour in Kurnool district announced Butta Renuka as the TDP candidate for Kurnool Lok Sabha and SV Mohan Reddy as the party's pick for Kurnool Assembly segment in the next elections. This move has not gone well with party Rajya Sabha member TG Venkatesh. TDP MP while reacting over it said he was shocked to know about Nara Lokesh announcing party candidates. 'Is he a party president to do so?'. How could candidates be announced in an official programme?, Rajya Sabha member raised his doubt. 'May be, SV Mohan Reddy could have hypnotized Lokesh', TG Venkatesh said in a satirical note. On the other hand, SV Mohan Reddy said he does not have any personal enmity with TG Venkatesh. 'I would be offered MLA Ticket in the 2019 Elections. So Nara Lokesh has announced officially', SV Krishna Reddy said.
