Andhra Pradesh ruling YSR Congress Party on Friday, November 6, celebrated the third anniversary of the “Praja Sankalp Yatra” undertaken by party president and Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy.

An inter-religious prayer service was organised the party’s Central office in Tadepalli as part of the celebration, according to Telangana Today. Government Adviser (Public Affairs) Sajjala Ramakrishna Reddy, ministers Botsa Satyanarayana, Anil Kumar Yadav, and Vellampalli Srinivas, and other YSRCP leaders took part in the service.

Addressing the party functionaries, Botsa stated that the YSRCP government has fulfilled majority of promises mentioned in the party’s election manifesto. Sajjala said that the YSRCP leaders and workers will take feedback from the people about the AP government’s rule in the next ten days.

He recalled the difficulties faced by Jagan Mohan Reddy during his ‘Pada Yatra’ and said he single-handedly brought the party to power in Andhra Pradesh. “Reddy had interacted with all cross-sections of the society during his Pada Yatra, and is fulfilling all the promises made during the Pada Yatra,” he was quoted by ANI as saying.

Party general secretary Sajjala Ramakrishna Reddy, speaking on the occasion, said the 3,648-km-long ‘Pada Yatra’ made history and added that many obstacles were faced by Jagan Mogan during the same. “Even a murder attempt was made,” he said.

“Jagan had devised the party manifesto based on his interactions with the public during that yatra and kept it as paramount to fulfill the promises made in that manifesto. Now Jagan is fulfilling not merely those promises but beyond them too,” he added.

The ‘Praja Sankalpa Yatra’ was started on November 6, 2017, from Idupulapaya in Kadapa district. He had walked 3,648 kms covering all 13 districts of Andhra Pradesh interacting with the people.
