Savithramma re-elected CB Pur ZP vice-president

B Savithramma, who had been ousted with a no-confidence vote recently, was re-elected as vice-president of the Zilla Panchayat on Thursday.

The Communist Party (Marxist) had lost a first-ever won seat in the Zilla Panchayat with the successful no-confidence vote passed on February 25 against vice-president B Savithramma.

On Thursday, however, the party won back the seat after Savithramma filed her nomination and was elected as vice-president of the ZP.

Members of the CPM burst crackers at Shidlaghatta Circle and distributed sweets to celebrate Savithramma's victory.

CPM district unit secretary M P Munivenkatappa, Zilla Panchayat member Narayanamma, Bagepalli Taluk Panchayat president Shobha Rani, leaders B N Munikrishnappa, M Krishna, Manjunath Reddy, Srinivas and others were present on the occasion.
