 - Sakshi Post

AMARAVATI: Andhra Pradesh Governor Biswabhushan Harichandan appointed Pandula Ravindrababu and Zakia Khanam for the two vacant memberships in the State Legislative Council under the governor’s quota. The governor nominated both as MLCs. The state's chief electoral officer K. Vijayanand released a  gazette notification to this effect on Tuesday, July 28.

Zakia is a Muslim minority woman from Rayachoti of YSR Kadapa district, while Ravindrababu is a former MP from Amalapuram, East Godavari district and belongs to the SC category. The governor nominated these two based on the recommendation of Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy even as the nomination of the two from minority and weaker sections evoked widespread appreciation.

Speaking after being appointed to the MLC post, Zakia thanked CM YS Jagan for nominating her from the party to the State Legislative Council. She said that it is a great pleasure for her to work under the dynamic leadership of YS Jagan, who always works for the development of state and welfare of the people. She said that her husband was a close associate to the family of  Y S Rajasekhara Reddy and worked for the party. Zakia said that she will contribute to the development of the constituency, besides the party. She also thanked MLA Srikanth Reddy and MP Mithun Reddy.

Speaking about his nomination for the MLC post, Ravindrababu said that he was shocked to see a leader like YS Jagan who always remained committed to his word.
Highlights of Ravindra Speech:
►Many people give promises when they enter politics but after being voted to power they forget everything. But YS Jagan is a leader who is always true to his word and implemented all the assurances given by him.
►The CM is committed for the upliftment of weaker sections and is leading the state with a 'big-brotherly' assurance to the Dalit, tribal and weaker sections.
►We felt like orphans in the last 10 years but scenario has changed after YS Jagan became the chief minister of the state. He is working hard for the welfare of Dalit, tribal and weaker sections.
►Poor people needs a chief minister like YS Jagan for the betterment of their lives. "We will elect YS Jagan as CM for the rest of our lives," said Ravindra Babu.
