Jagan's handicapped supporters to undertake rally to Delhi

Hyderabad, June 27 (IANS) A group of 30 physically handicapped people will undertake a rally from Andhra Pradesh's Anantapur district to New Delhi on tri-cycles to oppose what they call "illegal detention" of YSR Congress party president Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy.

The group along with 10 of their aides will undertake 2,000-km long rally over next three and a half months.

"The rally is to highlight the illegal manner in which their beloved leader Jagan's case is being prolonged by the CBI at the behest of vested interests," said a statement by YSR Aasaya Sadhana Samithi.

The group is expected to reach Hyderabad on July 4 or 5. It will also undertake two-day fast here.

Samithi's secretary Sharif said during the regime of Jagan's father Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy, several schemes were announced and implemented for the welfare of the physically handicapped.

The Samithi was set up two years ago to ensure that the schemes launched by YSR were implemented effectively.

Jagan, who is the MP from Kadapa, is in jail for more than a year in alleged disproportionate assets case.
