A 90-year-old elder, Rathamma has nominated herself for Sarpanch post, at Thummalapalli village of Penubelli mandal in Khammam. She had been thrice sarpanch in the past. This time, she did not want to contest because of her age. But the villagers said that they wanted her to contest and so she has filed nomination. Rathamma's husband, Chenchaiah had been a freedom fighter and later a sarpanch of the village. He had inspired Rathamma to work for the welfare of the people.
