After sweeping the municipalities and municipal companies in Andhra Pradesh, the YSR Congress Party, in a heartwarming gesture, made a vegetable vendor because the Chairperson of a municipality within the state.
The ruling social gathering on Thursday made Sheik Basha the newly elected Chairperson of the Rayachoty Municipality. Mr Basha, who holds a level, advised NDTV that life has taken a u-turn since he was picked by the chief minister to contest the municipal polls.
“I thank Chief Minister Jagan Mohan Reddy for giving somebody like me the chance to be the Chairperson of the Rayachoty Municipality. Despite being a level holder, resulting from unemployment, I needed to promote greens in my village to outlive. I had no path in life. It was then that YSR Congress gave me the chance to contest on a councillor’s ticket. Now, I’ve been elected to be the Chairperson of the municipality. The chief minister has catered most variety of seats to the backward communities within the state. We thank him for doing so and inspiring individuals from the economically backward sections of the society, like me,” Mr Basha stated.
The YSR Congress swept 84 out of 86 municipalities/municipal companies within the state. The most praiseworthy side of the election was that the Jagan Mohan Reddy-led social gathering gave 60.47 per cent of posts to girls and 78 per cent of posts to the backward communities.
