Jagan's Sister Sharmila Steals the Show

Three days after her son was sent to jail, Vijayamma hit the dust trail in north coastal Andhra district of Srikakulam on Wednesday accompanied by her daughter Sharmila. And it was Sharmila who stole the thunder at the road shows with women and youth standing dangerously on rooftops, craning their necks out to have a glimpse of YSR's daughter.

"Nenu Rajanna koothurni, Jagananna chellalni. Na peru Sharmila" (I am YSR's daughter, Jagan's sister. My name is Sharmila), she introduced herself to the crowd, as Sharmila along with her mother made her first public appearance outside faction-ridden Pulivendula. Addressing the enthusiastic crowd from atop her late father's prachara ratham' (make-shift campaign bus), Sharmila said the time had come to bring back 'Rajanna rajyam' (YSR rule) and make Jagananna the chief minister of the state. "My brother was implicated and arrested in a corruption case. Those who are laughing at our plight should be taught a fitting lesson," she said, raising her voice, much to the delight of the crowd.

In her bid to milk the YSR sentiment, Sharmila also talked about the injustice meted out to her family by the Congress high command. "My brother will walk out from jail victoriously and fight for you. He will solve all your problems and restore all the welfare schemes of my father," she thundered and pleaded with the voters to defeat both Congress and TDP. As the campaign vehicle surged ahead, Sharmila held aloft a ceiling fan (YSR Congress Party symbol) asking the people to vote for the party and waved to the milling crowds in the typical fashion YSR would do. The roads were chock-a-block with thousands of screaming Jagan fans, with traffic coming to a grinding halt at several places as the Vijayamma ratham moved on.
