Medak, the Multistarrer
Medak is on everyone’s mind, beginning with actor-turned-MP M. Vijayashanthi. Amitabh Bachchan’s co-star in Zamaanat is seeking support for Congress in Medak, her constituency, though she was elected by TRS in 2009. She is switching loyalties as TRS suspended her and she hopes Congress will give her the ticket. She’ll have to beat two contenders: TRS chief K. Chandrasekhara Rao himself and Rahul Gandhi, who is being persuaded by Congress to contest from Medak from where his grandmother won in 1980.
