Hyderabad: The Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) released its fourth list of candidates for the upcoming Telangana Assembly elections.

Ex-Congress leader Chalamala Krishna Reddy was disappointed and quit the party to join BJP after Komatireddy Raj Gopal Reddy was given the Munugode ticket on his return to the grand old party.
Raj Gopal Reddy had quit the Congress and joined the BJP last year, but returned to the party after he was overlooked by the BJP which decided not to offer him a ticket for the Assembly polls.
