Mahabubnagar Congress Mahila President joins TRS along with husband

Mahabubnagar: In a major blow to Congress party in Mahabubnagar, District Mahila Congress President Padmaja Yadav, along with her husband Gopal Yadav joined TRS party on Monday, in presence of MLA V. Srinivas Goud.

Gopal Yadav has been active in town politics for the past three decades and has also served several times as a ward counsellor. His wife, Padmaja, is currently the ward counselor for 21 ward. His paternal uncle Sahadeva Yadav had also served as the Municipal Chairperson in the past.

Addressing the media after wearing the pink stole at the R&B Guest House in Mahabubnagar town, he said that though he had been with Congress party for decades, he had worked along with TRS from 2000 to 2005 and had also won as a counselor on TRS’ ticket back then.

However, influenced by the leadership of Congress leader Vittal Rao, he went back to Congress later. He said that it was because of the development of Yadava community under the leadership of MLA V. Srinivas Goud, he had taken the decision to become part of the developmental story of the community he belonged to.

Padmaja Yadav said that she, as a ward counselor, had received lot of support and help from MLA Srinivas Goud whether it was restoration of Yerakunta Cheruvu or development of a park in her ward. As Srinivas Goud was the only MLA from the BC community among 14 assembly constituencies of united Mahabubnagar, she thought it was apt for her to support his leadership, she added.

The couple made it clear that they were happy with Congress and were feeling sad leaving the party. They said they were leaving the party only because they wanted to do something for their Yadava community and help the State government in developing Mahabubnagar in all aspects.

Municipal Chairperson Radha Amar, TRS State Secretary Md Imtiyaaz and others were present on the occasion.
