YSR Congress leader Sharmila on Saturday promised that if her brother and party president Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy is voted to power, the new government would complete the Srisailam tunnel project and provide safe drinking water to all fluoride-hit villages in the district.

Addressing road-side meetings in Marriguda mandal, on the second day of her ‘Maropraja Prasthanam Praja Yatra’, she claimed that while Telugu Desam leader N. Chandrababu Naidu made available only Rs. 9 crore for providing water to the flouride victims, the YSR Government had released Rs.375 crore. If YSR was alive he would have ensured water supply to all the affected villages, she said.

Ms. Sharmila said while the YSR dispensation had extended all benefits to farmers and students, the Kiran Kumar Reddy government not only cut down the welfare measures but burdened the people with higher power tariff, taxes and failing to control prices. She accused both the TDP and the Congress of colluding to put her brother in jail for alleged corruption. She sought people’s support for YSRCP if their lot was to improve. Senior YSRCP leader M.V. Mysoora Reddy accompanied her during the padayatra which entered the second day in the district.

The YSR sibling, who has so far walked over 859 km, will cover 132 km in the district, touching Devarakonda (seven km), Munugode (39.5 km), Nalgonda (24 km), Nagarjunasagar (33 km) and Miryalaguda (33.5 km).
