Sharmila crisscrosses through 170 villages

Mahabubnagar, Nov 27,
2012: Sharmila, who has been undertaking Maro Praja Prasthanam Padayatra on
behalf of YSR Congress president Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy since Oct 18, has so
far visited 170 villages besides 6 municipalities and 2 corporations
crisscrossing a distance of 539 km.

Lakhs of people
followed Sharmila across her walkathon in the three districts of YSR,
Anantapuram and Kurnool where Maro Praja Prasthanam has been completed and in
Mahabubnagar district where it is presently under way.

Sharmila interacted
with people of all walks of life at Rachchabanda programmes besides addressing public
meetings at several villages and towns. Where ever she went, she received a
galore of complaints on lack of proper power supply, non-implementation of
Arogya Sri, absence of drinking water facilities, insufficient supply of
essentials on ration cards and dilution of fee reimbursement scheme.

While seven out of ten
people who she met complained of power supply for only three hours a day, the
rest told her the supply of 16 kg of rice on ration cards in a month was not enough
to feed their families. Most of the aged women she met complained of
non-receipt of pensions and the absence of Arogya Sri facilities.

At most of the places,
daily laborers told her there were no regular works for them and they were only
paid Rs. 30 a day when they got works. Farmers and handloom workers also listed
out their problems to her throughout the Padayatra.

For her part, Sharmila
succeeded in reposing a sense of confidence among the people that their
problems would be solved when YSRCP comes to power under the leadership of Y.S.
Jagan Mohan Reddy.
