TRS MLC Gutha Sukender Reddy who assumed charge as the Chairman of State Legislative Council on Wednesday was extended best wishes by the members of Legislative Council on Wednesday.

Members of Legislative Council vowed to run the House without any bias and encourage healthy discussions.

Speaking on the occasion, Finance Minister T Harish Rao recalled his long association with Reddy since the latter worked with Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao in TDP and later on, during separate Statehood movement.

He said Reddy was not only a tall person physically but had a strong stature and was confident that he would bring laurels to the chair. He said one cannot forget humble beginnings of Reddy as a ward member who went on to serve three terms as a Parliament member, before becoming the Council Chairman.

He said due to efforts of Reddy, the Alimineti Madhava Reddy project was completed.

Municipal Administration and Urban Development Minister K T Rama Rao said despite working in Congress, Reddy extended support to agitators from other political parties. He said Reddy had been a strong advocate of separate Telangana State and contributed his might as an MP in the formation of separate State.

He said that Assembly Speaker Pocharam Srinivas Reddy and the Council Chairman were both farmers and passionate about agriculture, which augurs well for farmers in the State.

Opposition leaders - Congress MLC T Jeevan Reddy, BJP MLC N Ramachander Rao, AIMIM MLC Syed Amin Jafri and others, urged the Chairman to spare adequate time to the Opposition and encourage healthy discussions.

Deputy Chairman Nethi Vidyasagar, Home Minister Mohd Mahmood Ali, Ministers V Prashanth Reddy, G Jagadish Reddy, Talasani Srinivas Yadav, Satyavathi Rathod, V Srinivas Goud, former Ministers Nayini Narasimha Reddy and Kadiam Srihari, Government Chief Whip Bodekunti Venkateshwarlu and others also spoke on the occasion.

They recalled the four-decades of political career by the Chairman, terming it as an inspiration for many young politicians.

Reddy thanked TRS president and Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao for giving him the opportunity to head the Council. He vowed to uphold the dignity and integrity of the post by encouraging healthy and progressive discussions.
