KVP's book on YSR to be released on Friday

September 6, 2012 - New Delhi

The new book penned by Congress MP KVP Ramachandra Rao 'Padayatra My Dairy - Dr YS Rajasekhara Reddy' will be released by senior congress leaders Motilal Vora and Ghulam Nabi Azad on Friday. The book chronicles the events and memories of the historic 1470 kilometer padayatra undertaken by Rajasekhara Reddy in 2003. Following the padayatra, YS Rajasekhara Reddy was able to lead Congress to victory in the assembly elections and eventually formed the government in the state.

The release of the book by KVP Ramachandra Rao, who is a close-confidant of YSR, is coming at a time when the legacy battle is cropping up between the Congress party and the son of Rajasekhara Reddy who formed the YSR Congress Party.

The Congress leaders claim that they are true inheritors of the YSR legacy saying and are continuing the popular schemes introduced by the former chief minister including 108, 104, fee reimbursement, Rs.2 per kilo rice scheme, Arogya Sri.

On the other hand, the YSR family alleged that the Congress has insulted the Rajasekhara Reddy by denying them to organize Odarpu Yatra and eventually distancing Congress MP Jagan Mohan Reddy by the AICC president Sonia Gandhi.
