Pradesh Congress Committee president D Srinivas on Wednesday filed his nomination papers for the rural segment of the Nizamabad constituency.
Although DS' son had formally filed the nomination papers on his behalf a couple of days ago, DS did not want to take chances and filed a fresh set of nomination paper in the day.
Later, talking to newsmen, DS said his party would win at least six seats in the Telangana region. He however, rejected the contention that Naxalism would rise its head in case Telangana state was not formed.
To mediapersons' questions, DS indicated that Naxalism has increased in North Andhra districts, but there is no Naxalism in Telangana region.
