Party won 64 out of 119 assembly seats:
Congress MLA-elect Mallu Bhatti Vikramarka is likely to be sworn in as Deputy Chief Minister. CPI General Secretary D Raja and CPI MLA-elect Kunamneni Sambasiva Rao are also set to participate. The AICC leadership officially declared Revanth Reddy as the Congress Legislature Party leader and the upcoming Chief Minister following the party’s triumph in 64 out of 119 assembly seats, bringing an end to the decade-long rule of KCR-led BRS.
About Revanth Reddy:
After joining the BJP’s student branch, the ABVP, Revanth eventually switched to the TDP, where he won the Kodangal seat in the Mahaboobnagar district in the 2009 and 2014 assembly elections. In October 2017, he became a member of the Congress, and in the 2018 elections, he was defeated by the BRS. But he recovered in a matter of months, taking home the Malkajgiri Lok Sabha seat in the election.
Traffic and security arrangements have been put in place for the smooth conduct of the event, with VVIPs arriving at different airports in the city.
