Sharmila1 300x131 Padayatra will highlight failures of Govt: YSRCP

Describing the Maro Praja Prasthanam Padayatra as unique in many ways, the YSR Congress party has said that it would be a protest march to highlight the failures of the State Government and its nexus with main opposition TDP.

“The 3,000 km Padayatra of YSR daughter Sharmila will turn a new leaf in the polity of the State as no woman has so far ventured into such a programme and the opportunistic and nexus politics of Congress and TDP will be the focal point of the Padayatra,” the Party MLA, Bhumana Karunakar Reddy told media here on Sunday.

The Padayatra will begin on October 18 at Idupulapaya where a public meeting will be held and will go on uninterrupted for over six months, he said adding that the protest march will traverse through Kadapa, Ananthapur and Kurnool districts in the first phase.

“On the first day of the Padayatra Sharmila will walk for 14.5 km in YSR Kadapa district,” Karunakar Reddy, who is member of the coordinating committee along with Kotamreddy Sridhar Reddy and Putta Prathap, said.

The State Government, which has been indifferent towards people’s issues, has been taxing them indiscriminately and has held back the welfare schemes of YSR. While farmers are a worried lot with the hike in input costs and lack of proper power supply, industries are being closed due to lack of power supply.

The fees reimbursement has been diluted drastically while health care has become a far cry in the Kiran Kumar Reddy government. Even as all the sections of the society are expressing resentment, the main Opposition TDP has been very irresponsible on its part.

“Instead of raising the issue in the floor of the house and move a no confidence motion, TDP has opted to go on a padayatra criticising the Congress. The double standards of TDP only speak of the clear nexus between the Congress and TDP,’ he said.

We will expose this nexus during the padayatra which is our form of protest, he said.
