Speech made by Prabhakar

Thank you very much.

You, Voters have made an independent choice in favour a first time politician.

From  north to south and east to west, you defied the odds and the experts and delivered a surprise victory to me and my party.

I thank all the people of Ranimundry for electing me as your next MLA.

Every day I hold this office, I will give all that is in me to serve you well and make you proud.

Most of all, I will remember that while the honor is mine, a MLA is people's representative.

I want to thank my party president, Mr. Venkateshwara and all the speakers for their call of congratulations. A hard contest is now behind us, and now we must come together as a united citizens of this town.

I promised to my family members and friends at the very beginning,  that win or lose we would run a race which would make us all proud. I kept my word and we ran a clean, issues oriented, upbeat campaign with the involvement of large number people.

When I first started running, I asked for a lot of help, because I knew it was going to be me against the  big party machines. As it happened all of us were against those machines. But we persisted with determination with our aim of sending one among us to the assembly.

I’m grateful to all those who supported me even when I was a long shot. I especially thank a friend who was there with encouragement from the very beginning, Venkateshwara Rao. He guided me using his experience as a contestant in the parliamentary election.

There are some  people who gave me a chance and believed in me. For the trust they placed in me, and for all they have taught me, I thank my friends and party members. The victory celebration today is because of your early belief and support.

It all started with me, and my visits to party members houses. Our party president appreciated our campaign with an address here. Then it resulted in the Chief Minister's hurried visit to the town to defend his party. His special criticism of me and my party showed what we have achieved through our way of campaign.

In every corner of our town, I met with people, looked them in the eye, shook their hand, and asked them for their vote. I didn’t worry about their party affiliation, and they didn’t worry about mine. It was simply shared conviction that brought us all together. That helps in serving all as MLA of the town. Now every one can visit me and discuss issues.

In Hyderabad, I will work in the assembly with members of all parties to express your views and influence them to support your views.

As I proudly take up the duty you have given me, I promise to do my best for Ranimundry, East Godavari District, Andhra Pradesh and India.

I go to Hyderabad as the representative of no faction or interest, answering only to my conscience and to the people. I’ve got a lot to learn in the assembly,  but I know who I am and I know who I serve.

Thank you very much.
