Hyderabad, Feb 24 (UNI) Andhra Pradesh Governor Rameshwar Thakur today presented the J Eashwari Bai memorial award - 2006 to Chief Minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy for his exemplary devotion and dedication to the uplift of the downtrodden and neglected segments of society.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr Thakur said Dr Reddy was instrumental in orchestrating several mass struggles while highlighting issues facing peasants, weavers, Dalits, youth and women in the state.

Stating that Dr Reddy's relentless fight for clearance of pending irrigation projects, particularly in the backward Rayalaseema region, had earned for him a special place in the hearts of millions of farmers, he said 'Dr Reddy, unlike most politicians, reflects the spirit of a true Indian who walks his talk'.
