    YSR leaves for pilgrimage to Israel

    Hyderabad (IANS): Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy, who took charge as Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister for the second consecutive term last week, on Wednesday left for a pilgrimage to Israel along with his family members.

    YSR, who became the first Congress Chief Minister to retain power in three decades, will visit Bethlehem and other holy places for Christians during the four-day visit. He will return to Hyderabad on May 31.

    YSR, a Christian by faith, is accompanied by his wife Vijayalakshmi, his son and daughter and their family members.

    His son Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy was elected to the Lok Sabha from Kadapa in the just-concluded polls while his son-in-law Anil Kumar is an evangelist.

    The chief minister will offer thanks-giving prayers at the holy places for the victory of the Congress party, which won 156 seats in the 294-member State Assembly and 33 out of 42 Lok Sabha seats.

    This is YSR's second pilgrimage to Israel. He first visited Bethlehem after coming to power in the State in 2004.
