Thousands of youth greet YS Jagan

Chittoor: Leader of the Opposition in Andhra Pradesh Legislative Assembly and YSRCP President YS Jagan Mohan Reddy touched the 900 km milestone in the village of Cherlopally in Srikalahasti constituency. This historic walkathon began on 6th November, 2016 in Idupulapaya in YSR District. On reaching the 900 km milestone in Cherlopally, YS Jagan planted a Raavi or peepul sapling to mark the historic occasion. Beginning in YSR District, Praja Sankalpa Yatra has already coursed through the districts of Kurnool and Anantapur. It is now passing through Chittoor district.

Thousands of youth, women and the elderly walked alongside YS Jagan in Srikalahasti, as in other places, to express their solidarity. People thronged from far and near lending a festive occasion to the walkathon even as scores of people approached him with their problems. YS Jagan gave a patient ear to every single individual who came up to him pouring out his or her woes.

The people at large expressed their resentment and sense of despair at the distress they had been subjected to in the four years of TDP rule under Chandrababu Naidu in which justice was denied to poorer and backward sections of the society, they said. They welcomed the YSRCP chief heartily. On his part, he stopped to listen to their grievances and their complaints. In many places in Srikalahasti constituency in district, people waited for hours to pour out their grievances to the AP leader of the Opposition. Ranging from the elderly who were denied pensions, to youth who did not get their jobs as promised by Chandrababu Naidu, to students who have been waiting in vain for fees to be reimbursed to them, to contract lecturers whose services had not been regularised, to farmers whose crops had been destroyed and compensation not yet paid as yet, people expressed grievance after grievance about the TDP regime.

One thing was abundantly clear—people everywhere were vexed with Chandrababu Naidu's fraudulent promises and the TDP's politics of deception.
