You can call it an ordained destiny or rather you can say it’s a step towards women empowerment. For the second time in the history of Visakhapatnam, a woman candidate called Golagani Hari Venkata Surya Kumari, who won as a corporator from ward no 11, became the second Women Mayor in a unique way for the Visakhapatnam. Jiyyani Sridhar, of Ward 52, has been announced as the Deputy Mayor.
Indeed it has been definitely a very momentous moment in my life,” Ms Golagani Hari Venkata Surya Kumar told Hello Vizag. I have been receiving several congratulatory messages for being elected as a new mayor of Visakhapatnam, which has been designated as Executive Capital of Andhra Pradesh.
Of course, I do take a lot of pride and prestige in that, but I do want to thank the residents of the city of Vizag that voted for me in large numbers, said Hari Venkata Surya Kumar. Stating further, she said a big thank you for the trust reposed on me by the hon’ble chief minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy and in particular peace-loving people of Vizag.
