Visakhapatnam

Confident of victory, says Sabbam Hari

Former Mayor Sabbam Hari, whose name was announced late on Monday night by the Telugu Desam Party (TDP) as the party nominee for the Bheemunipatnam Assembly segment, had a steady stream of visitors at his Seethammadhara residence on Tuesday.

The visitors included his schoolmates, who came from Bheemunipatnam, to greet him. Though Mr. Hari has been living in the city for the past several years, he has his roots in Bheemunipatnam. “I kept myself away from active politics for five years. But, I never lost touch with my native place . I strive to solve problems of people through meetings and discussions,” he said.

Mr. Hari recalled that he had joined the Congress, when the TDP was in power in 1984. “I was disillusioned with the Congress by its one-sided decision to bifurcate Andhra Pradesh. The Congress had to suffer a defeat in the election in A.P. Mr. Chandrababu Naidu has ensured development of the State, despite lack of cooperation from the Centre,” he said.

Takes a dig at YSRCP

Taking a dig at the YSRCP, he said the party was creating obstacles for the completion of Polavaram project and development of Amaravati.

To another query, he said the people were more interested in the success of the TDP and this would ensure his success in the election.
