AP Council: YSRCP candidate Dokka to file nomination for MLC by-poll today
The YSRCP leadership has finalised former minister Dokka Manikya Vara Prasad as its MLC candidate. Dokka had served as the TDP MLC and tendered resignation to his post after YSRCP came to power. The MLC seat fell vacant with his resignation. He will be filing nomination for the MLC by-poll on Thursday as June 25 is the last day. As the TDP decided not to field its candidate, Dokka will be elected as MLC unanimously. The YSRCP has less MLCs compared to the opposition TDP in the AP Legislative Council.
