Sharmila creates Padayatra history

Srikakulam, July 29,
2013: Inking history, Smt. Y.S. Sharmila reached yet another milestone by completing
3000 km distance of her Maro Praja Prasthanam Padayatra when she had reached
the Dhanapuram village of Srikakulam district on the 224th day on Monday.

Smt. Sharmila, who had
embarked on the walkathon on October 18 last from the YSR Samadhi at
Idupulapaya in YSR District on behalf of the incarcerated YSRCP chief Sri Y.S.
Jagan Mohan Reddy, became the first woman in the country to have attained such
a record.

After taking off from
Idupulapaya, she marched forward as thousands of people had followed and
heralded her walkathon whole heartedly in each of the more than 1700 villages that
spanned across 14 districts and 107 assembly constituencies covered by her.

Targeting the ruling
Congress for its failure to continue the YSR welfare schemes and TDP for its
reluctance to criticize the anti-people policies of the Congress Government,
Smt Sharmila in most of her public speeches had driven home the point that Sri Jagan
Mohan Reddy had become  victim of
political conspiracy by Congress and TDP.

Waking thorough the
vagaries of nature and bearing the simmering heat at times, Smt. Sharmila
interacted with people, mostly the poor, the aged, students and women at her
innumerable Rachchabandas and impromptu road shows and assured people that
their problems would be seriously looked into and solved when the YSRCP came to

Assuring that Sri Jagan
Mohan Reddy would bring the YSR’s golden era back after assuming power, she fairly
succeeded in exposing the deceptive politics and evil designs of Congress and

Smt. Sharmila took a
6-week break from Padayatra from Dec 15 following a keyhole surgery to her
ligament injury she sustained earlier and resumed Padayatra on Feb 6.

The following are some
