According to sources with in the party Naidu is planning to contest from Serilingampally assembly seat in Hyderabad because his present seat Kuppam will go to Seemandhra region as the result of bifurcation.
There are also rumors that Chandrababu Naidu’s son Lokesh will contest from Kuppam Assembly seat. In this situation senior Naidu has no other option, other than contesting from Hyderabad. In rest of the Telangana region no other Assembly seat looks safe for the TDP supremo to contest from.
Serilingampally constituency is a strong hold for Telugudesam party. All major software companies are located in that constituency. The industry considers Naidu as as a favorable candidate.
Apart from the voters from software community, there is a large population of voters from other sections as well who support TDP since beginning. According to the party sources, after assessing every situation Naidu has opted Serilingampally assembly seat.
If Hyderabad will become Union Territory, then there will be no assembly elections in there as per the rules. And this will be a real shock to the TDP. In such situation if Chandrababu Naidu opts to contest from Seemandhra state, then party may face leadership question in Telangana .
