Breaking News:

Home minister P Chidambaram confirms death of Andhra Pradesh chief minister
YSR Reddy and four others in chopper crash.
Bodies were charred and the helicopter was broken and charred: Chidambaram.
YSR’s mortal remains being flown to Kurnool General Hospital for postmortem.
Central leadership of the Congress is understood to have cleared the name of
Andhra finance minister K Rosaiah as the caretaker CM of the state.
YSR’s chopper found on top of a hill near Kurnool

NEW DELHI: Andhra Pradesh chief minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy has died in an air crash, home minister P Chidambaram has formally announced.

“We are in deep mourning,” the home minister said, describing YSR, who led the Congress to a spectacular election victory in May this year, as “a tall leader”.

“… We send our condolences to the families of YSR and the other four (who died in the helicopter crash).”

The bodies of 60-year-old Reddy, his special secretary P Subramanyam, chief security officer A S C Wesley, pilot Group Captain S K Bhatia and co-pilot M S Reddy were found on Rudrakonda Hill, 40 nautical miles east of here, besides the mangled remains of the helicopter.

YSR’s mortal remains are being flown to Kurnool General Hospital. After a postmortem there, they will be brought to Hyderabad, state government sources said.

Big crowds have gathered outside the state secretariat and YSR’s residence. As Thursday is also the day for the immersion of Ganesh idols at the end of the Ganesh Chaturthi celebrations and there is a huge traffic dislocation in the city, cops are finding it difficult to manage the situation.

The central leadership of the Congress is understood to have cleared the name of Andhra Pradesh finance minister K Rosaiah as the caretaker CM of the state.

The Union Cabinet is meeting to discuss the matter.

The helicopter carrying YSR Reddy, two of his staff and two pilots went missing in pouring rain Wednesday morning over the Naxal and tiger-infested Nalamalla forests.

Nearly 24 hours after YSR’s chopper went missing, it was located atop Serai Salem hill, at a distance 40 nautical miles (70 kms) east of Kurnool.

The CM left Hyderabad on a six-seater Bell chopper at 8.35am for Chittoor accompanied by his secretary and chief security officer. After 9.27am, radio contact was lost with the helicopter.

Soon after the chopper lost contact, multiple agencies of the state launched a massive hunt for possible wreckage in the desolate terrain. By evening, it expanded into the country’s biggest-ever search operation with satellites in the sky joining remote sensing aircraft fighter jets, unmanned aerial vehicles, troops on the ground and even barefoot deer-hunting tribals with bows and arrows.

Kolkata: Former captain Sourav Ganguly on Sunday hailed the decision of the national selectors to bring Rahul Dravid back to the Indian side and said it only proved that form, and not age, is a factor in the game.

Rahul Dravid

Rahul Dravid

“Taking back Dravid is the right decision. I hope he will play well,” Sourav told mediapersons at Eden Gardens.

“This proves that in the national team it does not matter whether you are a junior or a senior. What is important is form. Ashish Nehra has been brought back. Dravid is back. So, this goes on to show that age is not a factor,” Sourav said.

Sourav had retired from the game about nine months back amidst speculation that the Board of Control for cricket in India (BCCI) had forced him to hang up his gloves.

In the run-up to Ganguly’s retirement, there was a buzz in cricketing circles about the BCCI being in favour of the old guard – Ganguly, Dravid, Sachin Tendulkar, VVS Laxman and Anil Kumble – making way for the juniors.

But though Ganguly and Kumble have quit, Laxman, Dravid and Tendulkar are still going strong.

However, the lef-thander, six months senior to Dravid in age, refused to take a question on whether he could also have served the team well had he not retired.

“Look, I don’t want to delve into this thing. I don’t want to think of the past. I have retired nine months back,” he said.

Bangalore: Rahul Dravid’s return to India’s one-day squad after a two-year gap has met with both appreciation and criticism. But Dravid is unfazed by the debate, only saying that he hopes to prove the selectors right.

After being announced as ”selected” on Sunday, Dravid made his first media appearance on Monday after his practice session at the National Cricket Academy in Bangalore.

Dravid said that he was quite happy to be back in the team, and hopes to do well in the upcoming series.

“Pretty happy to be back. I am looking forward to the tri-series and looking forward to the one-day series. I have been preparing well. So I am hoping that it will go well. I will go out there, do the best that I can and hopefully repay the faith that the selectors have had in me,” said Dravid.

The former captain’s last one-day international appearance came in October 2007, before selectors opted for a more youthful side with an eye on the 2011 World Cup.

The 36-year-old batsman has been selected for India’s tri-series trip to Sri Lanka and the Champions Trophy in South Africa.

The tri-series in Sri Lanka, which also involves New Zealand, will be held from September 8-14, while the Champions Trophy runs from September 22-October 5.

Dravid has played 333 ODIs, and is among the few batsmen in the world to have made over 10,000 runs in that format.
