Maro Praja Prasthanam - Sharmila Padayatra


YS Sharmila, YSR Congress Party leader and sister of party founder and Kadapa MP Jagan Mohan Reddy, has launched her marathon padayatra from Idupulapaya on 18 October 2012.

Sharmila is scheduled to walk 3000 km covering all the 23 districts of Andhra Pradesh. Jagan Mohan Reddy will join here when he gets released from jail.
