Jagga Reddy, who was appointed the president of Medak district Congress recently, shocked Congress in a surprised move.
On Wednesday, BJP state president G Kishan Reddy announced the name at the state office in the presence of Jagga Reddy.
Jagga Reddy will file his nominations today as Wednesday is the last day.
The former MLA will now take on to Kotha Prabhakar Reddy of TRS and Sunitha Laxma Reddy of Congress, thus making this by-poll a ‘reddy’ affair.
The seat fell vacant as KCR opted to become CM of Telangana resigning from the MP seat which he won along with Gajwel assembly seat in the general and state elections held together in April this year.
