    Political career

    Early political career

    Revanth Reddy was a member of ABVP while he was a student. In 2006, he contested the local body election and was elected as ZPTC member from Midjil mandal as an independent candidate.

    In 2007, Revanth Reddy was elected as a Member of Legislative Council (MLC) as an independent candidate. Later, he met Telugu Desam Party (TDP) chief N. Chandrababu Naidu and joined the TDP.

    Member of Legislative Assembly

    In 2009 Revanth Reddy was elected to the Andhra Pradesh Assembly from Kodangal constituency with 46.46% votes as a TDP candidate. He won against the incumbent and five-time MLA Gurunath Reddy of Congress (INC). He served as MLA in the Andhra Pradesh Assembly between 2009 and 2014 and in Telangana Assembly between 2014 and 2018.

    He contested the 2014 undivided Andhra Pradesh Legislative Assembly elections and was elected to the Telangana Assembly from Kodangal with a majority of 14,614 votes against Gurunath Reddy. He was elected as the floor leader of Telugu Desam Party (TDP) in the Telangana Legislative Assembly.

    On 25 October 2017, TDP removed him as the floor leader of the Telangana TDP after reports surfaced that he would consider joining the Congress party. On 31 October 2017 he joined Congress.

    He contested the 2018 Telangana Assembly elections from Kodangal as a Indian National Congress (INC) candidate and lost to Bhartiya Rashtra Samithi (BRS) candidate Patnam Narender Reddy, marking his first defeat in any election. On 20 September 2018, he was appointed one of the three working presidents of Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC).

    Member of Parliament

    Following his defeat in the 2018 Telangana legislative assembly election, Reddy successfully contested the 2019 general election from the Malkajgiri Lok Sabha constituency as a Congress candidate, by a margin of 10,919 votes, constituting 38.63% of the total votes. He defeated his closest competitor, Marri Rajashekar Reddy from TRS.

    2023 Telangana Assembly election campaign

    In June 2021, Reddy was appointed as president of Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee replacing N. Uttam Kumar Reddy. He took the new role on 7 July 2021.

    He led the Congress' successful campaigning against the incumbent Chief Minister K. Chandrashekar Rao in 2023 Telangana Legislative Assembly election with the party winning 64 seats, 4 seats past the majority mark. He contested from Kodangal and Kamareddy constituencies, winning in the former seat and losing in the latter. After his earlier wins from Kodangal constituency in 2009 and 2014, he is representing the constituency for the third time.

    Chief Minister of Telangana

    All India Congress Committee (AICC) named Reddy as the leader of Congress Legislature Party, following the elected MLAs' resolution authorising AICC to nominate the leader paving way for him to become the Chief Minister of Telangana.

    On 7 December 2023, he took oath as the Chief Minister of Telangana making him the second person to hold the post. On the day of his swearing-in, the iron barricades at the entrance to the chief minister's office were removed. Reddy announced his availability at the office to listen to people's grievances daily from 8 December 2023, reflecting the promise of people's government.

    Overseas engagements

    In 2009, when Indian students were being attacked in Australia, then Telugu Desam leaders Reddy and Nama Nageswara Rao had visited Melbourne, Australia to meet with International students from India. Reddy had visited hospitals, and travelled in trains and public transport in Melbourne to meet victims, and interact with Indian students in Australia, to get a better understanding of the situation.

    Reddy had also visited the Victorian Parliament, and had meetings with then Victorian opposition leader Ted Baillieu, and ministerial adviser Nitin Gupta to raise concerns about Indian students being attacked in Melbourne, Australia.
