Sharmila crosses yet another milestone

Hyderabad, June 23, 2013: Sharmila’s
padayatra has created history of sorts as she goes past the 2,500 km milestone
rekindling hope among the dejected people who are vexed with the anti-people
policies of the state government and its nexus with TDP in keeping YS Jagan
Mohan away from the people.

 “Taking ahead
the agenda of the welfare state of the Party, Sharmila will be crossing the
milestone at Kakarapalli in Tuni today and her padayatra has been rolling on in
the true spirit of the mass contact progamme,” party MLA Bhumana Karunakara
Reddy told reporters here on Sunday.

 The Long
March of Sharmila has been well received by the people as she raised their
hopes with the assurance that YS Jagan Mohan Reddy will bring back the gold era
of YSR welfare state. “The deceptive politics of the Congress and TDP have been
well exposed as Sharmila could drive home the point of how her brother became a
victim of political vendetta.

People have
understood the game plan of the opponents very well and are eagerly waiting to
pronounce their verdict at the earliest available opportunity. The overwhelming
response to the padayatra of Sharmila speaks of the mood of the people,” he

 The Maro
prajaprasthanam padayatra is not for the sake of creating records, though such
a feat by a woman will not go unnoticed and will be recorded with golden
letters in the history, he said, the programme was aimed at highlighting the
failure of the Congress government and its tie-up with TDP, CBI and vested
interests to keep Jagan in judicial custody for more than a year without any
proper reason and Sharmila has been successfully carrying out the task.

there was another padayatra in the state, which seemed like a nocturnal
activity and the TDP leader folded up the programme as it neither covered the
intended purpose nor could it impress his own cadre and leaders who left the
party in droves, Reddy said.  

padayatra, on the other hand, was well received in all the regions of the state
and her racha banda programmes, public meetings or interaction with various
sections of people drew very good response. She could assure them that the
despair would soon end and Jagan will be at the helm of affairs and the state
will take a turnaround in terms of development and welfare.

 “It took 188
days for Shrmila to cover the 2,500 km mark. En-route she covered 1,500
villages spread over 91 assembly constituencies touching 35 municipalities, 7
municipal corporations and 155 mandals. She interacted with over 3.5 crore
people during the padayatra so far,” he said.

 It is a
daunting task for a woman to walk this distance and Sharmila could derive the
strength from the people’s support besides emulating her father and the
commitment to carry out YS Jagan Mohan Reddy’s message to the masses, he said.

YSR was the
person responsible for bringing Congress to power for the second term and the
Kiran Kumar Reddy government has been pitch-forked onto the helm of affairs.
People are not happy with the Congress and they will teach a fitting lesson at
the hustings, he said.
