Sharmila, who has been undertaking Maro Praja Prasthanam Padayatra on behalf of
YSR Congress chief Sri. Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy, has been admitted to the
ApolloHospital in

Sharmila sustained the injury following a slip while boarding the bus during
Maro Praja Prasthanam. The Party suspended her Padayatra during the last three

specialist doctors have been continuously monitoring her condition. Doctors
said the operation may be performed in the next two days.

Dr.
Somasekhara Reddy, who has been monitoring the treatment of the ligament injury
and conducting medical tests on her, made it clear she should take rest for at
least three weeks after the operation.

Sharmila
has so far completed walking a distance of 822 km in 57 days prior to
suspending her Padayatra from Saturday following the ligament injury she
sustained.
