WARANGAL:  With their efforts to convince revolutionary balladeer Gadar to contest the Warangal Lok Sabha byelection proving futile, the Left parties have finally announced Gali Vinod Kumar, a professor of  Osmania University, as their candidate for the seat.

At a meeting attended by leaders of major Left parties here on Tuesday, CPI state secretary Chada Venkat Reddy said they  deiced to field Vinod Kumar, a native to Warangal district, as their candidate for the Warangal MP byelection.

Vinod Kumar, a known social activist and Ambedkarist, is working as principal of PG College of Law (PGCL), Osmania University, Basheergah. He is also leading the Telangana Samajika Vedika as its convener.

Kumar was born at Mamnoor village on the outskirts of Warangal city and worked as a journalist for a brief period in Warangal city.

Speaking to Express, Vinod Kumar hoped that organisations like MRPS would support him in the election as he belonged to the same community and called for unity of Marxists and Ambedkarists.

CPM state secretary Tammineni Veerabhadram,  MCPI (U) state secretary MD Ghouse, CPM district secretary Sarampally Vasudeva Reddy, CPI district secretary Takkallapalli Srinivasa Rao and others attended.
