Hyderabad, May 30 (IANS) Urban Development Minister M. Venkaiah Naidu has thanked the ruling Telugu Desam Party for support to the candidature of Railway Minister Suresh Prabhu for a Rajya Sabha seat from Andhra Pradesh.
Naidu tweeted: “I am happy that my friend Suresh Prabhu is filing nomination to the RS from Andhra Pradesh. Thanks to the TDP for supporting him. I hope his election from AP will be beneficial for AP.”
Union Minister of State Y.S. Chowdary and industrialist and former Congress minister T.G. Venkatesh are the other two candidates finalised for the Rajya Sabha slots from the state.
TDP supremo N. Chandrababu Naidu is still working on the fourth candidate, even though the party has not enough strength in the assembly to ensure his/her win. The party is likely to name the fourth candidate late Monday night or Tuesday morning.
