HYDERABAD: YS Sharmila seems to have intensified her efforts to launch her party in Telangana but has maintained that more consultations are needed to decide whether to float one or not.As the model code of conduct is in force in TS, Sharmila has deferred her tours but intensified the paperwork to form her party. According to sources close to her, key leaders in her group, such as Konda Raghava Reddy, have been camping in Delhi to get the party registered.
It is said that she is likely to announce her party in Khammam on her father and former Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister YS Rajasekhara Reddy’s birth anniversary. Sharmila had already announced that her party would bring ‘Rajanna Rajyam’ in Telangana. She is of the opinion that doing this would resonate with the people in a stronger way, sources said.
