Sharmila will be YSRCP Chief Campaigner in Telangana State.
YSR Congress President Jagan Mohan Reddy announced on Wednesday that his sister Sharmila will be the YSRCP Chief campaigner in Telangana State.
This was among the decisions taken in the first general body meeting of the Telangana wing of the YSR Congress in Hyderabad on Wednesday that was attended by nearly 5,000 delegates from the 10 Telangana districts.
Jagan said in another four years in Telangana, both the TRS and TDP will be wiped out and only the Congress, BJP and YSRCP will be in the contest.
Giving him a thunderous applause, party delegates urged Jagan to let Sharmila take over the party campaign in Telangana. Conceding to their request, Jagan announced that his sister will tour the Telangana districts to console the families of those who committed suicide or died of heart attack after hearing the news of YSR’s sudden death. “The tour and schedule will be announced soon,” Jagan said.
An enthused Sharmila also addressed the gathering and reminded that the free power scheme launched by YSR had actually benefited Telangana most as they had the maximum agriculture pump sets among all the regions in Telangana state. “Is there any other leader in Telangana who is better than YSR? He always had the welfare of the poor and underprivileged in Telangana in mind and launched several irrigation projects to change the face of agriculture in the region,” Sharmila said.
