Amid people: Women greet Kadapa MP Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy at Donakonda in Prakasam district

CUMBUM (Prakasam District): Congress Kadapa MP Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy's ‘Odarpu Yatra' evoked good response on the second day in the erstwhile naxalite strongholds in Giddalur Assembly constituency of Prakasam district on Saturday. Flanked by his uncle Y.V. Subba Reddy and the Mines Minister Balineni Srinivasa Reddy, and Darsi MLA B.Sivaprasad Reddy, the Kadapa MPs tour could cover only three mandals of Cumbum, Ardhaveedu Bestavaripeta as against five mandals planned for the day. People, particularly women and youth, lined up and waited patiently for hours together to have a glimpse of the son of late Chief Minister Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy.

Steering clear of controversies, Mr. Jagan rekindled the memories of YSR, shook hands with people, signed autographs and hugged babies to get closer to the people. Union Minister of State for Textiles Panabaka Lakshmi, Ongole MP Magunta Srinvasulu Reddy, eight MLAs, and two MLCS did not attend the programme. However a large number of second rung Congress leaders joined the Kadapa MP.

Though Mr. Jagan did not make any mention of Congress president Sonia Gandhi, the party activists carried in large numbers flags with pictures of Ms.Gandhi as also AICC General Secretary Rahul Gandhi, besides YSR. Mr. Jagan consoled the family of one person who died in the wake of the helicopter crash that killed YSR. He also unveiled the statues of YSR in as many as 10 places.

Addressing a meeting in Kakarla, he recalled that it was because of the efforts of YSR, the long pending demand for taking up Veligonda project could be realised.

Mr. Jagan, who addressed a series of public meetings, reiterated that each member of every family had benefited one way or the other thanks to a large number of welfare schemes and development projects launched by YSR. The Mines Minister urged the people to stand by Mr. Jagan to realise the dreams of YSR. The Government would do all its best to implement the projects initiated by YSR.
