Tributes Paid To YSR On 8th Death Anniversary:- Rich tributes were paid to former Andhra Pradesh Chief Minister, Y S Rajasekhara Reddy on his eight death anniversary today.

YSR’s widow Vijayawamma, son and YSR Congress party chief YS Jaganmohan Reddy, Jagan’s wife YS Bharathi Reddy, YSR’s  daughter Sharmila and other family members paid floral tributes at the YSR ghat at Idupulapaya in Kadapa district of Andhra Pradesh.

The family members and several leaders of the partypaid homage and also participated in a prayer meeting by observing silence for two minutes.

YS Jagan Mohan Reddy took to twitter saying,”YSR lives because he made lives better.”

The Congress leaders in both Andhra Pradesh and Telangana paid tributes to YSR, who was the chief minister of undivided Andhra Pradesh from 2004 to 2009. YSR’s statue in Hyderabad was also garlanded by President of the Telangana unit of Congress, Uttam Kumar Reddy, and other leaders.

It on this day (September 2) that YSR died in a helicopter crash, a few months after he led the Congress to victory for a second successive term in power. In 2010, his son and wife quit the Congress and floated a new party. Meanwhile, a protest was staged by the YSR Congress members in Andhra Pradesh assembly over the removal of YSR’s portrait from the assembly lounge. The main opposition party members were on their feet to lodge their protest, as soon as the house met. The house was adjourned for some time by Speaker Kodela Sivaprasad Rao.

The speaker later said only former speakers’ pictures are displayed in the lounges. The pictures of former chief ministers are displayed in committee hall, but since the committee hall has been allotted to Telangana assembly due to the bifurcation, a decision on former chief ministers' portraits will be taken after a debate.
