Telugu man chips in for Trump's victory

HYDERABAD: In his first speech after the results were out, Trump thanked many people behind his success. Perhaps, he forgot one - a Telugu man from Rajahmundry.


Avinash Iragavarapu from Rajahmundry, happened to go to Arizona in 2014 and took interest in the Republican Party. He helped Doug Doucey who later became the Governor. He worked for the party locally and then got into the big league to mobilise votes for Trump.


During 2014 polls, Avinash was associated with the YSR Congress to help out with data and strategy.
