Vijayalakshmi follows YSR sentiment

After son and Kadapa MP Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy’s arrest, YSRC honorary president Y.S. Vijayalakshmi is gearing up for her bypoll campaign with party cadres taking care of last-minute arrangements.

Vijayalakshmi’s maiden campaign begins at Narasannapeta constituency in Srikakulam; a favourite with many in the past as it lies on the eastern side of the state.

Many believe that initiating campaigns from Srikakulam district in the east of Andhra Pradesh is auspicious and will bring fortune.

Incidentally, her husband and late chief minister YSR culminated his historic 1,600-km padayatra before the 2004 elections at Ichapuram in Srikakulam district.

The padayatra was instrumental in bringing the Congress back to power in 2004.
