Mancherial: Chennur MLA Balka Suman, who was named as Government Whip by Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao on Saturday, said he would accept whatever post is given to him.
Incidentally, this is the second time that a Chennur legislator has been given the post. Former Chennur MLA N Odelu had also served as Government Whip from 2014-18. Suman, who was Member of Parliament from Peddapalli constituency, contested from Chennur to Telangana legislative Assembly and won by a thumping majority.
The student leader-turned-politician is known for ripping Opposition parties over several issues. He is considered to be loyal to the Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao and TRS working president K T Rama Rao.
The PhD holder has been playing a vital role in the activities of Telangana Rashtra Samithi and is known for promoting the government’s welfare schemes and developmental works with gusto. He had organized a mega community lunch near Godavari to promote Kaleshwaram Project and gifted silk saris and hosted lunch for beneficiaries of Kalyana Laxmi and Shadi Mubarak.
“I sincerely obey the decision of top leadership of the party. I happily accept whatever post is offered by the Chief Minister to me. I am always indebted to Rao for giving the Government Whip post. I thank leaders of the party and local cadres for extending their cooperation,” Suman told ‘Telangana Today.’
Meanwhile, supporters of Suman and members of TRS celebrated allocation of the post to the legislator, by bursting crackers and distributing sweets.
