Grand welcome for Jagan at home


Hyderabad: YSR Congress president Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy’s mother Y.S. Vijayalakshmi, sister Sharmila, wife Bharati and two daughters were waiting for him at his home adjacent to Lotus Pond in Jubilee Hills, after he walked out of the Chanchalguda Central Prison on Tuesday evening.
They welcomed him with the age-old ritual of breaking open a pumpkin to keep away bad omens.
Jagan Mohan Reddy’s cousins, Avinash Reddy and Yeshwant Reddy furnished the two securities of Rs 2 lakh each at the Nampally CBI court on Tuesday morning.
With protests raging across the state over the proposed bifurcation, Jagan Mohan Reddy’s release on bail will add a new dimension to the political equation. The YSRC is the only party that favours a unified Andhra Pradesh.
In his bail plea, Jagan Mohan Reddy had cited the ongoing protests in coastal Andhra and Rayalaseema regions as a reason for his release — that he needed to be with his people and lead his party.
Jagan will go on state tour: YSRC
YSRC MLAs and former MLAs met here at the YSRC Legislature Party office in the Assembly on Tuesday and celebrated Jagan’s bail by exchanging sweets. The YSRC MLAs announced that their party president Y.S. Jagan will tour the state after getting the court’s consent.
MLAs N. Prasanna Kumar Reddy, G. Srikant Reddy and others told the media that Jagan Mohan Reddy will move a petition in the court requesting permission to leave Hyderabad city. After getting the court’s nod he intended to make a tour of the state, including Telangana region.
They clarified that their party’s stand on the T-issue was a united state from the beginning. They said Jagan’s release was an opportunity — when people were waiting for a strong leader who would  fight to solve their problems.
They criticised the Telugu Desam chief Chandrababu Naidu for his ‘double stand’. They pointed out that all this while Naidu had been praising the CBI, but when Jagan was granted bail he started calling the CBI the ‘Congress Bureau of Investigation’.
YSR Congress legislators told Telugu Desam MLAs to bring pressure on Naidu to withdraw the letter which was given to the centre supporting a separate Telangana.
To a question, they replied that all regions were equal in the eyes of their party, and they claimed their party had strong support in Telangana region too.

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
