Former minister and TRS candidate for MLC seat under the MLAs quota Md. Fareeduddin was on Thursday declared elected for the seat unopposed.
Legislative Assembly Secretary S. Rajasadaram made announcement in this regard on Thursday and handed over the winning certificate to Fareeduddin. The vacancy for the seat arose after Tummala Nageswara Rao, R&B minister, resigned from Telangana legislative council following his victory in the Palair assembly by-election earlier this year.
With no other party fielding their candidates in the fray, election of Fareeduddin to the Legislative Council was unanimous. A host of TRS leaders congratulated Fareeduddin on his election to the Legislative Council. (INN)
