Hyderabad: Vani Surabhi Devi, daughter of former Prime Minister P.V. Narasimha Rao, has made her debut in politics in her 70s after the ruling Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) leader K. Chandrasekhar Rao named her as a candidate in the MLC elections for the Mahabubnagar-Rangareddy-Hyderabad Graduates’ constituency in Telangana.
