Rousing reception at Shamshabad airport
Hyderabad: A day after completing her 3,112 km padayatra in Itchapuram, YSR Congress party leader YS Sharmila on Monday called on her brother and party President YS Jaganmohan Reddy in Chanchalguda jail in the city. Sharmila, accompanied by her mother and party honorary President YS Vijayamma and Jagan’s wife YS Bharathi, drove straight to the jail from Shamshabad international airport where she was accorded a rousing reception by party workers after returning to the city.
Speaking to newsmen after the meeting, she said her brother was very happy with the way the padayatra was conducted.
He appreciated her for completing the marathon walkathon. She thanked god and all people who have blessed, co-operated and extended their unfailing love during her yatra. It was second time Sharmila met Jagan after she launched the padayatra in 2012. She met her brother a few months back when she suffered knee injury and temporarily suspended her yatra on health grounds.
Sources said that the duo also discussed political developments taking place in the state after the Congress endorsed formation of Telangana. She also told Jagan about the problems being faced by people of which she learnt in the course of her walkathon. Earlier, a huge car rally from Shamshabad airport to Chanchalguda jail was taken out by YSR party to welcome Sharmila.
