MULUG (WARANGAL DT.): Encouraged by the massive attendance at the public meeting late on Tuesday night at Parkal, Congress leaders led by Chief Minister Y. S. Rajasekhara Reddy set out with great enthusiasm for the campaign on Wednesday.

The Chief Minister turned out to be party’s only star campaigner and his visit was much awaited by the district party leaders and candidates for long.

People came in good numbers to the meetings held at important mandal headquarters such as Mulug Ghanpur and Mulug mandals while the crowds were encouraging for the road shows as well.

The Chief Minister restricted himself to listing out the initiatives undertaken by his government and the development brought in during the last four years rather than criticising the opposition parties. He said people had lost faith in the TDP and the TRS as they failed to fulfil the aspirations of people.

Dr. Reddy, who stayed overnight at Parkal mandal headquarters, began his day around 9 a.m. after garlanding the portrait of late Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi.

Listing out welfare schemes launched by his government, Dr. Reddy said the benefits reached all the deserving sections.

“Many people are enjoying the fruits of welfare schemes and they also brought down extremism in certain areas like this,” he claimed. Stating that only the Congress had a moral right to seek votes in the elections, Dr. Reddy said it was his party which made promises during the elections and delivered them.
