Prayed for Jagan to be CM again, says Roja

Kakinada: Tourism and sports minister R.K. Roja on Saturday said that the YSRC would return to power in the 2024 Assembly elections and that Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy would remain the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh for the foreseeable future.

She was addressing mediapersons after offering prayers at Lord Chalukya Kumara Rama Bhimeswara Swamy temple in Samalkot, considered a ‘Pancharama Kshetra’, and overseeing a national level south and west zone Weightlifting Championship at Adikavi Nannayya University at Rajanagaram.

Speaking on the university premises, Roja said: “Jagan got a place in the hearts of the people and they would ensure a win for YSRC and Jagan. After elections, Telugu Desam chief N. Chandrababu Naidu and Jana Sena chief Pawan Kalyan will have to take treatment in hospitals for psychiatric disorders.”

At Samalkot, she said that she frequently visited the temple every ‘Karthika Masam’. She said that she prayed “for the Lord to make Jagan Chief Minister again.”

Referencing the championship, Roja said that Karnam Malleswari was the first weightlifter to get an Olympic medal for the country, while namechecking Kodi Rammurthy, among others, as a famous weightlifter.

Calling upon women to take part in all avenues on a par with men, she said the government was making efforts by encouraging sports and games.

BC welfare minister Ch Srinivasa Venu Gopalakrishna said that Adikavi Nannayya University was established with the efforts of the former minister, the late Jakkampudi Ramamohan Rao, and the late chief minister Y.S. Rajashekar Reddy.

University vice chancellor K. Padma Raju said that 800 players from 90 universities were participating in the weightlifting contest.

Rajanagaram MLA Jakkampudi Raja said that a sports complex would be created at Diwan Cheruvu village of Rajanagaram mandal.

JNTUK vice chancellor G.V.R. Prasada Raju, Centurion University vice chancellor G.S.N. Raju, APSCHE chairman Hemachandra Reddy and Rajamahendravaram MP M. Bharat were among those present.
