Idupulapaya (Kadapa): YS Jaganmohan
Reddy, who is being projected as the next chief minister of
Andhra Pradesh, left for Hyderabad on Sunday, two days after his
father YS Rajasekhara Reddy was laid to rest here.
Accompanied by his mother Vijayalakshmi and sister
Sharmila, he left by a helicopter.
Though the Congress high command has sought to
restrain his supporters from openly campaigning for making him
the next chief minister, his presence in Hyderabad is expected
to again galvanise the drive.
Meanwhile, a multi-religious prayer meeting to condole
the death of Rajasekhara Reddy was held at the state Congress
headquarter, Gandhi Bhavan, in Hyderabad.
Interim Chief Minister K Rosaiah, PCC president D
Srinivas, former chief minister Janardhan Reddy, Union
Minister S Jaipal Reddy and Rajya Sabha member T Subbirami
Reddy were among those present on the occasion.
