YSR Congress Party honorary president Y.S. Vijayamma called on her son and party president Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy at Chanchalguda central prison where he is presently undergoing judicial custody.

Ms. Vijayamma was accompanied by her daughter Sharmila. The visit follows reports of YSR Congress winning a majority of the 18 Assembly constituencies and one Lok Sabha seat where by-elections were held on June 12. The three were closeted for some time.

Activists and supporters of YSR Congress, gathered in front of the central prison requesting the police that they be allowed to meet their leader. As the restive crowd remained unrelenting on their demand to meet their leader, the police took them into custody and forcibly removed them from the area.
