Jaipal Reddy is widely regarded for his Liberal, progressive and democratic values. He has been an ardent proponent of Democracy and a Representative Form of Government. His thoughts and ideas were penned in his book “Ten Ideologies: The Great Asymmetry between Agrarianism and Industrialism”.  Democracy is included in it as a separate chapter.

Democracy is a system of government where citizens hold power. They can impact important decisions, either directly or through the people they elect. Democracy is based on freedom and equality between all people. Jaipal Reddy dedicated his life to upholding the democratic values in the Indian Political System.

The moral, social, and political philosophies of the Upanishads, Buddha, Plato, Gandhi, Vivekananda, Nehru, Ambedkar and Bertrand Russell inspired and guided him. His speeches and writings were wise, insightful, incisive, eloquent, and laced with wit.

He shepherded the passage of the bill for the formation of Telangana in 2014.

He was a brilliant parliamentarian known for his oratorical skills and political acumen. His speeches were packed with knowledge, information, criticism and wit. He passed away on July 28th 2019 at the age of 77 years, and despite his physical disability carried on his journey with grit, and determination and stood as an inspiration to many.

Reddy was an elected representative for nearly 45 years and his contribution to the discussions in Parliament earned him, “The Outstanding Parliamentarian Award, 1998”.
