Stage set for Maro Praja Prasthanam

YSR Congress Party President
Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy’s sister Sharmila, along with her mother and party
honourary president Smt. Y.S. Vijayamma and other family members left for
Idupulapaya in Kadapa district on Wednesday from Hyderabad ahead of the Maro
Praja Prasthanam beginning Oct 18.

Meanwhile, Idupulapaya
is geared up to witness the launching of the historical Yatra aimed at
highlighting the Government’s failures and anti-people policies besides the
conspiracy hatched against Jagan by the ruling Congress and the opposition TDP.

Sharmila, wearing a black badge, is scheduled to begin the 3000 km walkathon ‘Maro Praja Prasthanam’ Padayatra on Thursday from Idupulapaya after paying homage to YSR at his Samadhi.

The Yatra, which is a
mass contact programme of the party, will witness Sharmila’s interaction with
villagers wherein she will get firsthand knowledge of the sufferings of the
people during the course of the Yatra.

Sharmila will meet
different segments of the people and try to assess their problems emanating
from the anti people policies of the Government.

The mega Yatra, which
will span over more than six months, will take off soon after an all religious
prayer meeting at YSR Samadhi. The event will be attended by, among others, party
MPs, MLAs, MLCs, political affairs committee members and senior leaders.

Party leaders will hold
parleys prior to the Yatra to discuss the finer things of the Yatra and related

Thousands of party
activists and Jagan fans are also expected to participate in the event and
accompany the Yatra which is expected to begin around noon. Sharmila and other
leaders will address a massive public meeting later in the evening at Vempally.
