Political Background >
Maganti Gopinath was born in 1964 in Hyderguda of Hyderabad. As with many other politicians of that time, drawing inspiration from NTR he joined TDP. He led the party's youth wing 'Telugu Yuvatha' and also served as the TDP city president. Later held several important positions in the party.
Though he decided to contest in 1999 elections from Khairatabad, he had to change his mind at the last minute. During the most tumultuous period in TDP's history, he was with Chandrababu Naidu and helped him strengthen the party. At end of the constituency delimitation exercise he managed to secure party's ticket and contest in 2014 elections and became MLA of the constituency. With the TRS confirming his candidature to contest in elections, he intensified his efforts to secure a victory and succeeded by defeating the Congress contestant Vishnuvardhan Reddy with a margin of 15,997 votes.
