Former minister Dr P Shankar Rao on Monday hinted that the YSR Congress party would win the Kovvur assembly seat where polling was held on Sunday.
Although Dr Shankar Rao did not name the YSR Congress party, but said that the party ‘having a Congress name’ would win the Kovvur seat. However, he restrained from predicting the results in other seats in the Telangana region.
The former minister also welcomed the nomination of K Chiranjeevi, Renuka Chowdhary, P Govardhan Reddy and R Anand Bhaskar for the Rajya Sabha seats. He said that their nomination would send a good message within the party and senior leaders would feel ensured that their services would be recognised and awarded. He said the party would win the general elections in 2014 if it continues to respect the senior leaders in the party.
Dr Shankar Rao said that the party might utilise the services of K Keshava Rao, who did not get re-nomination for Rajya Sabha, at an appropriate time. (INN)
