Former TDP leader Dokka Mkya Vara Prasad Rao on Tuesday sworn in as Member of Legislative Council of Andhra Pradesh.
Prasad had joined YSR Congress Party (YSRCP) in March this year, for which he had resigned his membership in Legislative Council, as it is a mandatory rule in YSRCP that if any person from other party wants to join YSRCP, he must resign his existing public representative position.
Accordingly, Mkya Vara Prasad resigned from TDP and his MLC position. After joining YSRCP, he is given the chance for MLC again. Prasad filed nomination on June 25.
He was the only person who filed nomination so his election, which was held on July 6, was unmous and today, he has sworn in as the MLC of AP Legislative Council.
