Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) has selected Patnam Narendra Reddy, brother of minister, Patnam Mahender Reddy, as its candidate, for Kondangal Assembly constituency, in Mahbubnagar district. It was represented by Congress leader, Revanth Reddy, who resigned from his post. Revanth won twice in 2009 and 2014 from Kondangal, on Telugu Desam Party (TDP) ticket. TRS planned to put up Narender Reddy from Kondangal, last year itself, when there was speculation of by-election following Revanth's resignation. He is at present MLC in TRS.
