Jagan Odarpu Yatra in Telangana soon

Hyderabad, Feb 24, 2014: YS
Jagan Mohan Reddy would resume his Odarpu Yatra in Telangana and address a
public meeting in Khammam district soon putting at rest the false propaganda
that YSR Congress has lost its base in Telangana region.

 “A decision to this
effect was taken at the Telangana district coordinators review meeting chaired
by YS Jagan Mohan Reddy. He would be undertaking the unfinished Odarpu yatra in
the all the nine Telagnana districts, barring Khammam where he completed the
tour,” Party spokespersons Gattu Ramachandra Rao and Janak Prasad told
reporters here on Monday.

The dates and tour details
would be announced shortly they said and scoffed the false propaganda that the
Party has no base in Telangana region. On the contrary as YSR is admired as the
best Chief Minister by over 63 % of the people in the region who were directly
benefitted by his welfare schemes.

“YS Jagan Mohan Reddy would
console about 250 families in the Telangana region as part of his Odarpu Yatra
which would begin with a public meeting at Khammam.

Setting aside the loose
talk of TRS MLA T Harish Rao that YS Jagan Mohan Reddy cannot enter Telangana,
they said, in a democratic set-up every citizen is free to tour any party of
the country. We were of the opinion that development could be possible only in
a united state while your party has thought otherwise.

Difference of opinion in
political thought need not refrain from Political Parties to carry out their
respective agenda. YS Jagan Mohan Reddy has consoled over 700 families that
lost a member on hearing the news YSR death and as a responsible son, he has
visited all the families to express sympathy.

While so many youth have
given up their lives during Telangana agitation, did the TRS President or
leaders ever visit any one house and console the family members. Such remarks
from Harish Rao come only out of the fear that their base may erode and YSRCP
will get a thumping response, they said.

We know how to balance
development and welfare. Since a decision has been taken on Telangana, the
focus should now shift towards development and YSRCP is going ahead on those
lines, unlike other parties that are thinking in political terms of mergers and

The Party cadre is
enthusiastic and is looking forward for the public meeting and Odarpu Yatra.  

On Chandrababu Naidu’s oft
repeated remarks that there is a tie-up with Congress as YSRCP is going soft on
Sonia Gandhi, they said: “it is Chandrababu Naidu who has been saving Congress at
the Centre and State and he has been carrying out orders from 10 Janpath, which
has become TDP high command of late. On the other hand people are the high
command of YSRCP.

YS Jagan Mohan Reddy could
dare question Sonia Gandhi on many counts and has called her a dictator. There
are many people who have benefitted out of YSR welfare schemes, including
farmers, students, women, and old people while Jagan has a good following in
Telangana and our Party will emerge as a strong force in the region, they said.

The merger experiment of
Cong and TRS is bound to fail as difference of opinion would crop up but YSRCP
will have a strong leadership to tide over any crisis, they said.
