71st Republic Day Celebrations were held in a grand manner all over the Nation on Sunday. Unfortunately, AP Minister Avanthi Srinivas ended up making headlines for all the wrong reasons. All he did was hoisting the National Flag upside down during the Republic Day celebrations.

Hoisting National Flag upside down will remain as a black remark on the political career of Avanthi Srinivas. Though it wasn't intentional, He might have to deal with the negativity coming his way.

Avanthi Srinivas served as Anakapalli MP until May 2019 by winning on TDP Ticket in 2014 General Elections. He shifted his loyalties to YSR Congress Party ahead of the 2019 Polls. This time, He contested for MLA Seat from Bheemili Constituency. He won against TDP Candidate Sabbam Hari by a margin of around 20,000 votes. In 2009 Elections, Avanthi Srinivas bagged Bheemili MLA seat with a margin of around 6,500 votes contesting on Praja Rajyam Party ticket. The biggest positive for this Politician is emerging victorious inspite of contesting on behalf of different parties in three elections.
