Vijaya Sai Reddy donates his eyes to Visakha

While Andhra Pradesh chief minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy had gifted the executive capital to the people of Visakhapatam, his lieutenant and trusted aide Vijaya Sai Reddy donated his eyes to an eye bank in Visakhapatnam.

The YSR Congress national general secretary, parliamentary party leader and Rajya Sabha member, Vijaya Sai Reddy pledged his eyes to Visakha Eye Bank in Visakhapatnam on Friday.

He pledged his eyes to the eye bank through a voluntary organisation, marking the birthday of chief minister Jaganmohan Reddy.

Vijaya Sai Reddy had been showing more interest in this port city right from the beginning. He had undertaken a padayatra in this town even before elections.

He made several visits to this city and played a key role in the party’s victory during the elections.

While Jagan Mohan Reddy’s uncle Y V Subba Reddy monitored the party’s electioneering in the Godavari districts, Vijaya Sai Reddy played crucial role in the north Andhra districts sitting in Visakhapatnam.

The YSR Congress leadership had special love for this beach city right from the beginning. Jagan Mohan Reddy had sent his mother Vijayamma to contest the Lok Sabha elections in 2014. Though Vijayamma lost the election for different reasons, the YSR Congress did not give up its hopes on this city.

Even in the elections, the party took special care here with Jagan and his sister Sharmila campaigning for the party.

The party had won 11 Assembly seats in this district out of total 15 seats. However, it lost all the four Assembly seats in the city, while wresting all the rural seats, including Gajuwaka, where it defeated Jana Sena chief Pawan Kalyan.

With Jagan Mohan Reddy announcing the executive capital for this town and Vijaya Sai Reddy continues to be a regular visitor, the YSR Congress is confident of wresting the city.
