Visakhapatnam, June 4
Three independent corporators of the Greater Visakha Municipal Corporation (GVMC) joined the YSRCP in the presence of party leader and Rajya Sabha member V. Vijaya Sai Reddy in the city on Friday.
The three corporators — Villuri Bhaskara Rao, ward No. 35, K. Nagaraju, ward No. 32, and Sadik, ward No. 39 — contested the elections held in March as independent candidates as they were denied the YSRCP ticket.
Mr. Reddy welcomed them into the party by placing a scarf around their neck.
