HYDERABAD: S Keshava Reddy, TRS supported candidate, was unanimously elected as vice- president of the Secunderabad Cantonment Board (SCB) on Tuesday. He won from Ward 2.

As seven out of the eight board members belong to TRS party, the election of vice- president became a one-sided affair. Though two to three ward members vied for the vice-president post, the TRS high command gave the nod to nominate Keshava Reddy for the coveted post in the SCB. As his name made rounds for the VP post prominently since the announcement of election results in January, his elevation did not come as surprise on Tuesday. “Water shortage is the main problem in SCB area and now being summer it has intensified. Our first priority will be to take up water problem,” Keshava Reddy said after being elected as the vice-president.

SCB president AS Negi, chief executive officer Sujatha Gupta, elected and nominated members of the board were present on the occasion.
