Strange as it may get, two close relatives are not only vying for the same seat, but also are eying ticket from the same party.

State Education Minister M Hanumantha Rao was supposed to contest from the Manglagiri Assembly seat. He was denied ticket due to some opposition and instead the same was offered to his son M Satyam.

Meanwhile, Congress leader and former civic chief, K Kamala, who is also Satyam’s mother-in-law, too was trying for nomination from the same seat of the temple town.

Now, both Satyam and Kamala have party B-forms, sources said adding the party can and would back only one officially. It would be clear after the scrutiny of nomination papers is done.
