Hyderabad: Swathi Bhavani Potla was the youngest in contention but proved that she was the second brightest of the 51 vying for stakes for an honourable place in the Telangana Court.
Meet 23-year-old Hyderabad girl, Swathi Bhavani Potla, who secured the second spot of the 51 selected for 67 posts in the Telangana court with a handsome tally of 241.16 marks out of 350 in the qualifying exam and has been appointed as the Junior civil judge. Swathi graduated last year and is the youngest among the applicants. The clincher came in the interview in September where she demonstrated her skills with rare aplomb. The results were announced on Tuesday. More incredible is that Ms Swathi is also the youngest among all judges selected in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana Courts.
Swathi has been a meritorious student, all along. She secured fourth rank in TS PGLCET or PG LAWCET-2018 and has also done internships under legal luminaries like Attorney General of India, K.K. Venugopal, Late PP Rao, Justices KS Panicker Radhakrishnan and Gopala Gowda, apart from various lawyers in New Delhi and Hyderabad.
Born to Satyanarayana Potla and Padmapriya, and a resident of RK Puram in Malkajgiri, the Dornakal (Khammam district) native is on cloud nine.
"Becoming a judge has been my career aim. I feel happy to secure the second rank and that too on my first attempt. Topping in both the Telugu States has made the occasion even joyous. I wish to be a fair judge and ensure justice in letter and spirit," Swathi exulted.
