On Wednesday, the Telangana party president YS Sharmila said that she would restart her interrupted Praja Pasthanam Yatra after this Sankranthi. In front of the media, she announced that she will begin the 2nd phase of her padayatra in January, as she was advised by the doctors to be at rest for 3 weeks.
After a crucial attack by the workers of KCR-led Bharat Rashtra Samithi in Warangal district, Sharmila halted her padayatra suddenly on November 28, 2022.
Sharmila said, “KCR’s goons attacked me and my activists and raised law and order issues, but I was arrested in turn. My hunger strike was interrupted and they imposed curfew in the vicinity. They did not even allow me go to the court. When asked they pass the buck on to their higher authorities.”
BRS workers had cruelly burnt her bus with fire and threw stones on other vehicles on Nov 28 in Warangal district. As Sharmila denied to stop the padayatra because of the strange situation in the area, she was arrested by the police later.
