Hyderabad: YSR Congress leaders and workers on Tuesday held rallies across Andhra Pradesh against the "unlawful" detention of their party chief YS Jaganmohan Reddy for the past one year.

Leading the protest, party honorary president Vijayamma and Jagan's wife YS Bharati sat on a day-long protest at Indira Park. Party leaders and activists accused the ruling Congress and main opposition TDP of hatching a political conspiracy against Jagan. They also decried the CBI's "intentional delay" in completing the probe.

In a simultaneous display, YS Sharmila also undertook a day-long protest at Palakollu in West Godavari district during her 'Maro Praja Prasthanam' campaign. Party leaders and activists in East Godavari, Chittoor, Guntur, Kurnool, Adilabad, Nizambad, Visakhaptnam and other districts undertook day-long protests.

The Kadapa MP was arrested by CBI on May 27 last year.
