Ahead of 2018 Telangana Assembly Election, getting the party ticket was considered a lucky chance. Many party leaders were disappointed after their party high command could not offer party tickets to them. These leaders who kept much hope to get the seats have revolted against their party high-command. They turned rebels and contested in the election as Independents. Some of the Independents have the chances of winning the election. On the other hand, TRS and Mahakutami have begun focussing on the issue and reportedly attracting the Independent candidates who have the chances of winning in the election. Both TRS and the leaders of Mahakutami are approaching the Independent candidates with offers.
