YSR Congress chief YS Jagan Mohan Reddy’s wife YS Bharati heaped choicest encomiums on Sharmila, Jagan’s sister, for undertaking a marathon padayatra across the state in support of Jagan.

“Normally, we see a mother sacrificing for her son, a wife giving up things for her husband. But, it is a very rare occurrence where a sister deciding to walk for as much as 2,000 km distance for the sake of her brother. Sharmila is so mad about her brother. She is to be appreciated for her supreme sacrifice,” said Bharati.

In an informal chat with some journalists at her Lotus Pond residence in Banjara Hills here on Thursday, Jagan’s wife refuted the speculations that differences were cropping up between Bharati and Sharmila over who should have the supreme say on the affairs of the party.

She said the entire family of the late YS Rajasekhara Reddy was very closely-knit and the members supported one another on any issue. Some rival parties were conducting  a false propaganda saying that there were differences among members of YSR’s family  just to lower the morale of the YSRC cadres in the run-up to the general election next year, she alleged.

“When YSR was alive, Sharmila never stepped out of the house. She never walked under the sun when her father was there. But, such a doting daughter of the late YSR is now walking under scorching sun for the sake of making his brother sit on the chief minister’s seat to bring back the golden regime of his father as per the wishes of people,” said Bharati.
