Takkellapadu villages in Macharla and Gurajala Mandals, she assured them that Jagan
Mohan Reddy would soon come out of the jail and bring in Rajanna Rajyam. “I
request you not to lose heart,” she told them with folded hands.

Earlier, several chilly
growers narrated their problems to her saying that they suffered heavy losses
in the last three years forcing farmers to commit suicides. “We are suffering
financially as there is no free power supply and remunerative prices to our
produce,” they told her.
