Jyothula Naveen Kumar, son of Jyothula Nehru (Jagammpeta MLA) assumed charge as in-charge chairman of the East Godavari Zilla Parishad today.
The post was vacant following the resignation of Namana Rambabu after completing three years out of the five-year tenure. It may be recalled that Nehru had shifted his loyalities from YSRCP to TDP following reported assurance from the ruling parting that he would be accommodated in the Cabinet expansion. Since he was given a post, he reportedly insisted the party to make his son a ZPTC member as Chairman of the Zilla Parishad.
Deputy Chief Minister Nimmakayala Chinarajappa who was the chief guest said that Naveen Kumar would be make ZP Chairman once the notification was issued.
