Accusing ‘Disloyal’ Ministers of defiling the statue of former chief minister YS Rajasekhara Reddy by staging a dharna at the Punjagutta Crossroads on Sunday, supporters of Kadapa MP YS Jaganmohan Reddy on Monday performed purification rituals by washing the statue with milk.

The protestors, all of them staunch supporters of Mr Jaganmohan Reddy, criticised the protestors who had participated in the agitation on Sunday for conveniently forgetting the benevolence YSR had showered on them and attacking the Kadapa MP.

Addressing the gathering former MLC HA Rahman challenged Minister for Health Danam Nagender to resign from his Assembly seat and contest again under Chief Minister K Rosaiah’s banner. He said that even Mr Nagender knows that such a move would relegate him to wilderness.

Mr Rahman added that he would willingly contest against Mr Nagender, in the constituency of his choosing and win the election under the YSR banner. The former MLC added that Mr Nagender is now aligning himself with YSR detractors just to save his chair.

Mr Rahman reminded the gathering that apart from the many public welfare schemes envisaged and initiated by YSR, including Arogyasri, Housing schemes for the poor, Paval Vaddi, Abhayahastham and many others, the former chief minister also provided reservations for minorities.
