Khammam: The two-day Maha Sabha of the Communist Party of India (CPI) concluded here on Monday with the members electing new bodies for Khammam and Bhadradri-Kothagudem districts.
On the second day, while CPI Telangana State secretary Chada Venkat Reddy detailed party’s future plans, senior leader and former legislator Puvvada Nageswara Rao, former MLA Kunamneni Sambashiva Rao and TV Chowdary spoke on building and strengthening people’s movements in the region.
Bagam Hemanth Rao has been re-elected unanimously as Khammam district council secretary. Rao belongs to Mutapuram village under Nelakondapalli mandal. He worked in different capacities since his student days and became district secretary first time in 2009, then in 2012 and again in 2015.
Rao was also the DCCB vice-president. Khammam council will have 56 council members and 18 secretariat members.It may be noted here that the split of Bhadradri-Kothagudem district from erstwhile Khammam necessitated the party to elect separate councils for the two districts.
The new council for the Bhadradri-Kothagudem district will be headed by new secretary Sk Sabir Pasha. He is also a long-serving member of the party and worked as Kothagudem municipal vice-chairman in the past. In undivided Khammam, he was the district joint secretary. The council will have 68 district members and 20 secretariat members.
