BELLARY, SEP. 03: The Diocese of Bellary mourns the untimely and tragic death of YSR Reddy, the chief minister of Andhra Pradesh and his colleagues.


“YSR Reddy was a leader of the masses, especially of the poor and marginalized sections of the society”, declared Bishop Henry D’Souza.


“YSR practiced politics of a different type. He promoted human rights and freedom of conscience. He cared for the poor and was a champion of the Dailts”, affirmed Bishop D’Souza.


“Our hearts reach out to the bereaved families of the victims of the tragic accident, who have suffered the loss of a loved one”, said Bishop D’Souza.


YSR was an illustrious student of the Diocese’s 130-year old school, St. John’s School, Bellary. The school held a school assembly to mourn the tragic death and to pray for the repose of his soul.


The school Manager Fr. T. Lourdusamy and the Secretary of BDBE have expressed “deep sorrow and shock over the untimely death of a great leader”.
