Today marks the 71st birth anniversary of late YS Rajasekhara Reddy. To honor his services towards the farmers, AP CM YS Jagan Mohan Reddy declared July 8th as Farmer's Day in the state in 2019.
The welfare schemes implemented by the late YSR made him very close to the mass and poor people. Loan waiver for farmers and interest-free loans were some of the schemes implemented for the welfare of the farmers.
Let's have a look into his glorious political career. YSR entered into active politics in the year 1978 and made it to the State Assembly and Lok Sabha for five and four times respectively. The one record he holds is never lost in any elections.
During his tenure as CM, YS Rajasekhar Reddy introduced medical services- 108 and 104 services for faster medical treatment in emergency situations.
To pay tribute to YS Rajasekhar Reddy, the Andhra Pradesh government led by CM Jagan Mohan Reddy inaugurated 412 new ambulances in the state by replacing the older ambulance services.
On the other hand, CM Jagan unveiled biography of his late father YS Rajasekhar Reddy which was penned by YS Vijayamma, titled as 'Naalo-Naatho YSR'.
