Vedire Sriram unveils plan to interlink Godavari and Krishna

Sriram pitted against S. Sudhakar Reddy and G. Sukhender Reddy in Nalgonda LS segment

‘Separate Telangana in 100 days’ has gone down well with people, he says

NALGONDA: Software engineer-turned-politician Vedire Sriram, BJP candidate for Nalgonda Lok Sabha seat, is leaving no stone unturned to enlist the support of all sections, including the technology savvy netizens, to emerge triumphant in the election.

Mr. Sriram, who worked in a Fortune 500 company in the USA for more than a decade, has embraced Information Technology to supplement his election campaign and reach out to a wider section of the voters. A postgraduate in computer science from Osmania University, Mr. Sriram, has launched website sriramfornalgondamp.com to use it as a potential communication tool to connect with voters.

He prominently projected the salient features of the book “Water and power crisis – what makes Telangana State a must”, co-authored by him along with his father in the website.

US model

He unveiled a plan of action to ensure interlinking of Godavari and Krishna rivers based on his comparative study of the world’s greatest water systems – Mississippi, Three Gorges, Rhine and Nile through the book which was earlier released by the BJP Prime Ministerial candidate LK Advani.

Mr. Sriram is taking on the political heavyweights - CPI national deputy secretary Suravaram Sudhakar Reddy and the Congress candidate G. Sukhender Reddy in a triangular contest.

Mr. Sriram is hopeful of reaping rich electoral dividends from his intensive electioneering. “The e-campaign is supplementing my conventional campaign which is mostly in the form of door-to-door visits,” he says.

Though, the traditional campaign formed the crux of my electioneering, I have launched a website exclusively to harness the power of IT to reach out to netizens, Mr. Sriram, an active member of “Overseas friends of BJP” said.

Smaller States

The BJP has a proven track record in the formation of smaller States and the promise made by Mr. Advani to form separate Telangana in 100 days if voted to power has gone down well with the people, he said.
