Sharmila to carry on second Praja Prasthanam from Oct 18

Press Release

Hyderabad, October 11:
The second Praja Prasthanam would begin on October 18 from Idupulapaya with YSR
family members carrying on the legacy of mass contact programme which will
highlight the failure of State Government and its nexus with TDP targeting YS
Jagan Mohan Reddy.

“The Padayatra will
begin at Idupulapaya on October 18 and conclude at Srikakulam. Sharmila will
carry out the programme and will be joined with other family members and when
YS Jagan Mohan Reddy comes out, he will take over from us,” YSRCP Honorary
President, YS Vijayamma told reporters here on Thursday.

The Padayatra covering
all the three regions of the State will be on the lines that YSR has toed
during his Praja Prasthanam which turned a new leaf in the polity of the State,
she said after the Political Affairs Committee (PAC) meeting which has prepared
the roadmap and was approved by YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, she said.

The lack of governance
and the anarchy prevailing in the State, with all the YSR welfare schemes being
dumped or distorted, and the indifferent attitude of the Government towards all
major issues affecting farmers, workers, students, women, minorities and other
sections of the society on one hand and the nexus of main opposition TDP which
is on “Save Congress “mode are the focal points of the Padayatra, she said.

TDP leaders meeting
Finance Minister P Chidambaram, hours before ED, working under his Ministry,
issuing attachment notice has exposed that the two Parties are working in
tandem targeting YS Jagan Mohan Reddy. The event taking place on the eve of the
Supreme Court verdict on YS Jagan Mohan Reddy bail petition shows the
conspiracy angle in full glare of the public. It is not a coincidence as this
has been a pattern with Congress, TDP and vested interests pulling up something
big whenever the judicial proceedings of YS Jagan Mohan Reddy reach a crucial

The motive seems to be
very clear. The Congress and TDP want to share power in turns and will not
allow any third force to grow. They were proved wrong on many occasions, but
they are bent on their theory and are persistent, unmindful of the public
opinion, YS Vijayamma, who shared the dais with Koathala Ramakrishna and
Bajireddy Govardhan, said. 

In course of the
Padayatra, will create a public opinion forcing the main opposition TDP to move
a no-confidence motion against the State Government which hardly governs nor
cares for the common man and has been taxing indiscriminately and going to the
extent of collecting power dues in retrospective effect and TDP remains silent,
instead of taking the issue head-on, she said adding that watering down of fees
reimbursement scheme, poor power supply to farmers and as to why TDP is not
playing its role as the Opposition Party are the questions we should be raising
during the Padayatra.

We have been fighting on
public issues ever since the Party has come into being and will continue to do
so. Our programme will aim at raising public opinion against the insensitive
State Government and equally numb and compromising Opposition TDP and force a
no-confidence motion at the earliest.

The Padayatra will be a
continuation of the various agitations led by YS Jagan Mohan Reddy against the
Congress for watering down YSR schemes and taking anti-people decisions, she
