New Kid in Seemandhra Politics

The new entrant in Rayalaseema politics is Bhuma Akhila Priya. Bhuma Akhila, elder daughter of late MLA Shobha Nagi Reddy and former Nandyal MP Bhuma Nagi Reddy, will be reprising her mother's role in Allagadda constitution and she's in fray in upcoming by-election. Akhila has filed her nomination from YSR Congress Party on Friday and sounded the poll buggle.

Akhila Priya said that she never thought of "joining" politics and "it's only destiny". However, Akhila now makes up her mind to "serve" people of her constitution. "We're always proud of my mother and father. Especially there were several days where she couldn't pay attention to us (children) due to her hectic schedule in politics, yet we're always happy. The respect she earned from people is what makes us proud," Bhuma Akhila said.

Akhila added, "Right from my childhood, I'm always inclined towards business, entrepreneurship. Both mom and dad too encouraged me as it was my passion. Now family responibility has plunged me into politics. I decided to carry forward my mother's legacy."

Meanwhile, TDP is mulling over to pit its candidate against Bhuma Akhila. However, nothing has been finalized yet.
