Tinmar Mallanna, born Chintapandu naveen Kumar on january 17, 1983, in Madhavapuram village of Turkapalli Mandal in bhuvanagiri district, transitioned from a journalist to a prominent political figure in India. His journey began with a thirst for questioning and a commitment to journalism, earning him degrees in Political Science and an MBA from osmania university and JNTU Hyderabad, respectively.

Mallanna's journalistic career flourished in popular tv channels like I news, NTV, and later v6 news, where he gained widespread recognition for exposing government failures. However, Mallanna's relentless questioning of the government led to his resignation from v6 news, prompting his foray into politics. Initially contesting as an independent in the jawahar Nagar election, Mallanna caught the attention of the congress party, which eventually offered him a ticket for the Nalgonda-Khammam-Warangal MLC elections. 

Despite his narrow defeat, Mallanna's dissatisfaction with certain Congress leaders led him to establish Q news and become increasingly critical of the establishment. Subsequently, Mallanna's activism landed him in jail for 75 days. His wife's announcement of his affiliation with the bjp marked a new chapter, though Mallanna's disillusionment with the party's policies prompted his departure. Joining the congress party, Mallanna continued his crusade against what he saw as the BJP's state and central government's anarchy.

Despite being initially poised for a potential karimnagar MP ticket, Mallanna was instead nominated as an MLC candidate by the congress leadership. Political analysts predict Mallanna's strong performance in the Khammam, Nalgonda, and warangal regions, highlighting his growing influence and resonance among voters. Mallanna's journey exemplifies the intersection of media scrutiny and political activism, underscoring the vital role of questioning in sustaining democracy.
