Sharmila to undertake padayatra from Oct 18

Sharmila to undertake padayatra from Oct 18 - Sakshi Post

Putting an end to the nerve-breaking suspense, YSR Congress party honorary president YS Vijayamma today announced that her daughter, Sharmila would undertake the mass contact programme and it is going be a padayatra.

Addressing media persons at her Lotus Pond residence after the party’s Political Affairs Committee meeting, Vijayamma said that Sharmila would begin her padayatra on October 18 at Idupulapaya in her home district of Kadapa and walk throughout the State to reach Itchapuram, bordering Odisha. A detailed road map is being drawn, she explained.
“Soon after Jagan is freed, he will begin the padayatra where Sharmila will end. However, as along as Sharmila is on the yatra I will be addressing the rallies off and on, at least once in a couple of days,” Vijayamma added. “In fact, the party leaders have advised me to take up the exercise. Since I am suffering from health problems like arthritis, on medical advice I have decided not to venture,” she explained.
The decision was taken at the Political Affairs Committee meeting and it had the approval of party president Jaganmohan Reddy, Vijayamma added. Jagan wanted Sharmila to undertake the yatra till he is freed and once Jagan comes out, he will take up from where Sharmila would leave it, she noted.
“Jagan wants us to be with the people always and constantly interact with them so that we will have a first-hand understanding of their problems. Both the ruling Congress and the main Opposition Telugu Desam Party (TDP) had failed miserably in meeting the aspirations of the people,” she said adding that it is only the YSRCP that can rise upto their (people’s) expectations. “People have reposed immense faith in us. And, we will stand by them at all times,” she stated.
Listing out the failures of the Congress Government in the State, Vijayamma said that the prices of essential commodities have skyrocketed, something as basic as diesel is not available for 104 ambulances, completely unhealthy conditions prevail in government hospitals with doctors rarely being present, not even a single ration card was issued after YSR’s demise and not a single house constructed in the recent past.
Pavala Vaddi scheme is no longer relevant and farmers and women are not getting their due benefits from the Government. “No one can predict when power supply will be stopped and when it will be restored. YSR had promised nine-hour supply to the farming sector. But now power is not available even for an hour in the day,” she narrated. “All these schemes are closer to the heart of YSR and the party will reactivate all the departments that are now in deep slumber,” she observed.
Stating that total injustice is done to Jagan, she said both the State unit of the Congress and the TDP are hand-in-glove in preventing Jagan from getting bail. “We will expose all their evil designs during our padayatra and also the failures of the post-YSR dispensations and how the people suffered under Chandrababu Naidu’s rule.”
People are eagerly waiting for the golden rule of YSR and we promise that we will live upto their expectations,” Vijayamma added.
