Hyderabad, Jun 12: Telangana Rashtra Samiti (TRS) legislator M Padma Devender Reddy on Thursday became first Deputy Speaker of the Telangana Legislative Assembly.

With opposition parties not fielding any candidate, the 45-year-old law graduate and two-time MLA was declared elected to the post.

Padma, who defeated actor-turned-politician Vijayashanti in Medak constituency in the recent Assembly elections, later assumed charge as the House took up discussion on the motion of thanks for the Governor's address.
