September 3, 2014 - Hyderabad
TDP MLC VR Satish Reddy has on Wednesday filed his nomination for the post of Deputy Chairman of AP Legislative Council.
The declaration of his election to the post on Thursday is unanimous following Satish Reddy gained support from the Congress, YSRCP, Progressive Democratic Front and Independents.
The name of Satish Reddy came as a surprise on Wednesday as the TDP initially planned to field KVV Satyanarayna (Chaitanya Raju) who joined the party recently in the back drop that some members have expressed reservations over his choice for the post.
It may be noted here that the Congress and YSRCP initially wanted to field their own candidates but later changed their mood and supported Satish Reddy who met the former PCC president Botcha Satyanarayna and YSRCP chief.
Satish Reddy filed his nomination with the AP Legislative Secretary K Satyanarayna Rao in presence of Deputy Chief Minister N Chinna Rajappa, Minister Narayana and Leader of the Opposition C Ramachandraiah among others.
