Sharmila's Sentimental Politics
Another political party is all set to enter into Telangana politics with Y.S.Sharmila, daughter of deceased Chief Minister of United Andhra Pradesh Dr. Y.S.Rajasekhara Reddy (YSR). She seems to play sentimental politics. It is learnt that her party's name is already approved by the Election Commission as 'Yuvashakti Rythurajyam Telangana Party' (YSR Telangana Party). To this extent, a party flag was designed that will be unveiled on 8th of this month which is the birth anniversary of Dr.Y.S.Rajasekhara Reddy.
It is said that the flag is designed with the colour of Telangana State bird 'Palapitta', known as 'Blue Jay' or 'Indian roller' in English. The colour of 80 percent of the flag will be in Palapitta's cover while the remaining 20 percent will be in blue colour. Also the flag will have a picture of YSR in the Telangana state's outline.
Political observers stated that Sharmila has been wisely trying to expose the memories of the YSR and his love for Telangana. She cleverly designed the flag with Palapitta colour as it has great sentimental value in the Telangana region and people of Telangana feel important to see the bird especially during Dasara festival. Sharmila seems to encash the sentiment of the people as she believes they are highly sentimental unlike people of Andhra Pradesh. She hopes that YSR's name will be helpful for her party.
