Hyderabad : Brushing aside the remarks of TDP leaders and their personal attack on Leader of Opposition YS Jagan Mohan Reddy, YSR Congress has said that the comments stem out of the fear of the stupendous success of Yuva Bheri. It said that the Party leader held a crucial meeting ahead of the Nov 2 Padayatra to take stock of the situation.
Speaking to reporters here on Wednesday, Party leaders Mekapati Rajamohan Reddy, RK Roja and Ambati Rambabu said the crucial meeting was attended by the MPs, MLAs, MLCs, constituency coordinators, district level leaders and heads of all the affiliated wings of the Party and discussed the logistics of the Padayatra and how to go about with the mass contact agenda.
YS Jagan Mohan Reddy had thrown open the floor to the leaders to express their views about the way in which the Padayatra arrangements should be made. He gave a patient hearing to the views expressed by the members and their viewpoint. Most of the speakers had suggested that the booth level committees should be strengthened and the outreach should be widened and it was resolved in the meeting that every village should be visited by the cadre and the Party flag should be hoisted, they said.
As booth-level committees form the backbone of the Party, they should be given importance and the cadre should be roped in in every programme, the members had told YS Jagan Mohan Reddy. Over 50 participants had expressed their views that were considered by the Party President.
The meeting discussed about the arrangements to be made in the remaining 12 districts while the Leader of Opposition is touring one district and the modalities thereof and all aspects of the Padayatra were taken into account, they said.
