Sharmila Reddy, sister of Chief Minister Jagan Reddy, has launched a political party in Telangana
Ms. Sharmila stated that she will bring 'Rajanna Rajyam' to Telangana, as well as carry on her father's welfare pledges.
Former Chief Minister YS Rajashekhara Reddy's daughter, YS Sharmila, announced the formation of the YSR Telangana Party on Thursday, the former Chief Minister's birthday.
“It's a joyous occasion to kick off the party on YSR's birthday. During the launch of the party at a convention centre, YS Sharmila, who was joined by her mother YS Vijayamma and husband Anil Kumar, said, "I would bring back Rajanna Rajyam and fight for the welfare and development of Telangana."
She said both CMs should sit down and discuss the Krishna water issue, referring to the river water dispute between Andhra Pradesh and Telangana. She slammed the BJP and the state's ruling TRS, alleging that the two parties were working together. Ms Sharmila has previously stated that she will not allow a single drop of Telangana water to flow into Andhra Pradesh.
Sharmila announced the formation of her political party in April. Sharmila remarked at the time that she wants to follow in the footsteps of YSR, which is why she is entering politics for the first time. "YS Rajasekhara Reddy began his Pada Yatra on April 9, 18 years ago from Chevella, and walked for 22 kilometers each day. YSR has strolled across places listening to people's issues, which led to the creation of many schemes that were later implemented by YSR." She also stated that she wants to follow in the footsteps of YSR, which is why she is entering politics for the first time.
