He neither contested in elections nor did he hold any constitutional post during his days in Praja Rajyam Party.

For unaware George Reddy (born 16 January 1947) (died 14 April 1972) was a research student in physics at Osmania University, in Hyderabad, India, who was murdered by his opposition on 14 April 1972 in a student hostel, aged 25. The event led to the formation of the Progressive Democratic Students Union (PDSU), a student body on the campus of the university that took its name from the PDS imprint that Reddy had used when publishing pamphlets.
George Reddy was a university gold medalist and a keen boxer, remembered now primarily for his promotion of Marxist ideas and his opposition to social discrimination and inequality. According to a student friend, he was inspired by "the emerging Black Panthers movement in the US, the Vietnamese people's struggle against US imperialism and the peasant uprisings in Naxalbari and Srikakulam.'
