Hyderabad: YSR Congress president and Kadapa MP, YS Jaganmohan Reddy on Monday said his party would strive to usher in "value-based politics".

"We have been facing a lot of trouble over the past one year, but what kept us going is the faith people have placed in us," Jagan told partymen after hoisting the YSRC flag at the party headquarters here on the occasion of its first anniversary.

"Initially, there was discouragement from many quarters. Some of them said coming out of Congress would be suicidal.

They tried to lure me with party posts and cabinet berth, but I did not yield," he said.

"I believed what my heart said and took the decision and the party was formed....Our party works for the poor and farmers and these are the focus areas," he added.

YSR Congress honorary president YS Vijaya, who hoisted the party flag at her husband's grave at Idupulapaya, said the party came into existence to serve the poor and the downtrodden, and to carry forward the ideals of YSR.
