In two day's time on May 27, 2013 it's going to be a year since YSR Congress party president, YS Jagan Mohan Reddy was arrested.
In a span of one year, the family has been witness to a series of conspiracies by Jagan's detractors to ensure he remains in jail and away from scores of people, who have pledged their unconditional support to their favourite icon.
To this day, scores of his supporters gather outside the Chanchalguda jail raising slogans in support of their beloved leader. They wait to catch a glimpse of him.
His family members have displayed courage aghanst all odds.
Party workers and supporters have been offering special prayers and organising blood donation camps across the state to get all the blessings for their leader's release.
It may be mentioned here that Jagan has been under unlawful detention since May 27. Despite several attempts to seek bail, Jagan's bail has been rejected with some excuse or the other exposing the conspiracy hatched by the Centre to confine him to the four walls of the prison.
All this happened as Jagan fearlessly defied Congress! If Congress thought they can strengthen their party prospects in the state, they certainly miscalculated. The rising popularity of YSRCP is undeniable! Jagan is one leader, who despite being behind bars, has managed to command the respect and love of people. His fan base has only grown by the day. The innumerable facebook accounts in his name bears testimony to this fact. Perhaps never before in the history of politics has a youth icon managed to garner so much public adulation.
Although his fans were disappointed that the government and the judicial system has been unfair to him, Jagan has always remained unfazed by all that's happening around him.
Surveys conducted by several reputed TV channels have already declared that YSRCP will sweep the 2014 elections.
With Sharmila's padayatra titled 'Maro Praja Prasthanam' having generated a stupendous response, the popularity is there for everyone to see.
