Hyderabad, June 10 - TRS legislator Sirikonda Madhusudhanachary was Tuesday elected the first speaker of Telangana state legislative assembly here.

His election was an unanimous affair with all opposition parties supporting his candidature.

The legislator of the ruling Telangana Rashtra Samithi (TRS) assumed charge after pro-term speaker K. Jana Reddy announced his election.

The main opposition Congress, Telugu Desam Party (BJP), Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslimeen (MIM) and others supported Chary's candidature.

Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhara Rao and leaders of all parties congratulated Chary and escorted him to the speaker's podium soon after Jana Reddy announced his election unopposed.

The chief minister said Chary's role in Telangana movement would always be remembered, adding that Chari was active in the movement even before the TRS was floated.

Jana Reddy, who is the leader of Congress, TDP's T. Srinivas Yadav and the BJP's G. Kishan Reddy assured full cooperation to the speaker in smooth conduct of the proceedings.
