Serious dissidence has been brewing in the TRS over the possible candidature of Kusukuntla Prabhakar Reddy for the Munugode bypoll, even as the name of Legislative Council chairman Gutha Sukhender Reddy has also been making the rounds.

Minister from Nalgonda district G. Jagadish Reddy was given the responsibility to fix the dissidence but it is learnt that if it is not nipped in the bud, then internal rivalries within party leaders could harm the TRS’ prospects.
