Three years after the death of late chief Minister YS Rajasekhar Reddy, the Government of Congress has announced to distribute Rs. 1 lakh ex-gratia to each of the victimised families of those who committed suicide after learning the death of YSR in helicopter crash. Government Whip in the Legislative Council Rudraraju Padma Raju in connection with the third death anniversary of YSR told to media, “Congress party would fulfill the promise of giving Rs. 1 lakh ex-gratia to all the families whose kin committed suicide after YSR’s tragic death. List of victims was prepared when D. Srinivas was heading the Pradesh Congress Committee and the same has been sent to All India Congress Committee for approval and they soon distribute the amount among families of victims.
YSR was a Congressman till his last breath and he would always remain an asset for party. YSR Congress party’s claim on Congress party have lost rights over YSR after his death can never be justified. Congress party has been implementing all the schemes initiated by YSR and would continue to do despite all hurdles.”
