Party's district president Balineni Srinivas Reddy and several other senior leaders have attended the meeting. Speaking on the occasion, Giddalur constituency incharge IV Reddy recalled the contribution of people's leader Dr YS Rajasekhara Reddy in developing Andhra Pradesh.
IV Reddy urged the urged the Central Government to confer Bharat Ratna, the highest civilian award of the country, on YSR for his contribution to the uplift of poor and needy sections. 
He said YSR had initiated several welfare measures for the poor people and is still being remembered for his concern for the poor and the marginalised.
"Ask any poor man or woman! They will tell you what YSR did for them. Ask a young techie working in Chennai, Pune or Hyderabad! He will tall you how fee reimbursement helped him. But today, 108 service, which helped save thousands of lives, is being weakened. Look at the plight of the poor men and women standing for hours and fainting while waiting for their pensions,"" IV Reddy said
He further said several states are now emulating the plethora of cases put in place by late YSR. He had worked to ensure that there are smiles in every face and he helped everyone regardless of their political affiliation. So, he should be honoured with Bharat Ratna, IV Reddy demanded.
