Press Release

Hyderabad, May 13, 2013: YSR Congress has resolved to chalk out a winning strategy in the ensuing local bodies elections and also to express solidarity with Sharmila whose padayatra will be crossing the 2,000 km mark on May 16.

“The party has decided to chalk out a strategy to win most of ZPTC and MPTC seats in the coming elections. All MPs, MLAs and other leaders of the party will be with Sharmila when she crosses over the 2,000 km mark in West Godavari district on May16,” party senior leader DA Somyajulu told media after the Political Affairs Committee (PAC) meeting held here on Monday.

On completion of 2,000 km in course of her padayatra, Sharmila will be joined by party leaders at Ravikampadu of Chinthalapudi assembly constituency in 
West Godavari district. She will be walking for another 1,000 km to set the record of being the first woman to walk that distance.

Her padayatra has been getting good response at every place and the party leaders will share the moment of completing two-third distance of her Maro Prajaprasthanam, Somayajulu said.

The other major decision taken by the PAC, Somayajulu said, was to convene an extensive executive meeting of the party to chalk out the strategy for the coming local bodies’ elections.

We have survey reports suggesting that our party will fare better. As these elections are scheduled to be held on party basis we are taking it seriously.

“The wish of the people will be shown in the ZPTC and MPTC elections as they will be held on party basis. People have lost faith in Congress and TDP and it will be resolutely told once again. We will meet on May 17 to draw a strategy for the elections,” he said.

The third decision taken by the PAC is to hold a meeting at Pranahita under the leadership of YS Vijayamma. The date will be decided later and tentatively it will either on May 20 or May 21. Senior leaders will be taking part in the meeting he said adding that a Rachabanda will also be held.

Discussion on Odarpu Yatra was broached at the meeting, but majority felt that since it was started party president YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, it would be better if he resumes it.

The PAC was held with the available leaders. Besides DA Somayajulu, Dr Mysoora Reddy, Mekapati Rajmohan Reddy and other leaders participated in the meeting.

Konathala Ramakrishna could not attend the meeting as he had to attend an important wedding and was out of station.
