Madhus father died in a road accident in the year 1990.
As there was no immediate medical attention, his condition
deteriorated and he died. Madhu was very much moved by the
sudden demise of his father in such a tragic way and this
incident left a deep impact on his life. It also inspired
him to become a cause for giving life to many accident victims
and thus encouraged wife Dr Shuchee to change her subject
from gynecology to endocrinology. Dr Shuchee had worked successfully
in many hospitals in the United States of America. And now,
she returned to India, for the sake of her childrens
education and also with an intention to settle down in one
NRI, Madhu Yaskhi and his Dr.
Wife returned to India
to serve children and the poor people of India and
elected MP. A rash of suicides by farmers
in his native Andhra Pradesh set off a chain reaction culminating
in his election to the Indian parliament.
As a legal professional in New York, who had helped many
Indian brethren solve their problems amicably in an alien
land. In a profession where people make a mark after long
periods of service, Madhu had made a name for himself by delivering
legal service to NRI communities, particularly Indians having
problems in America.

founded the International Legal and Trade Consultants and
through this organization he had been able to impart valuable
legal help to solve personal problems of people of Indian
origin and also businesses started by them. According to him,
many Indians and in specific the Telugu speaking are in the
forefront of computer revolution both in India and in the
United States of America. Madhu had been behind the success
of many among them.
Born on 15 December 1960 to Y. Kistaiah and Y. Sulochana in
a middle class agricultural family in Hayatnagar, Madhu has
six sisters and four brothers. He is the second among them.
His fathers younger brother Y. Pochaiah and wife Y.

Regarding his education, Madhu studied in the local Zilla
Parishad School. Later he completed his intermediate education

group; and then, his Bachelors Degree with Arts from the Nizams
College. He finished his LLB from Delhi University between

average student, he managed to get a double promotion from

Almost all sports attracted Madhu. He used to play Ball badminton
and was the captain of the team in his intermediate days.

in reading Telugu literature and History. At a very young
age, he read almost all the books of the great Telugu scholar
Madhu had the qualities of a leader right from early childhood.
Even in school, from First standard onwards, except for one
year, he was the class leader. When he was in the eighth standard,
he participated in the school elections and was elected General
Secretary. This was an overwhelming achievement for Madhu
as the two other candidates who contested with him were tenth
class students. Sidelining them, the students had voted in
Madhus favour. This was a clear indication of Madhus
leadership qualities. While in the tenth class, he was elected
President of the school.
Even in college, there was no set back to his leadership
qualities. Change of atmosphere and place did not cause any
hindrance or we can say that he did not allow hindrances to
block his way to success. Even in college, he was the Vice
President of the Students Union of PG College and Nizam
College Students Union. While doing his LLM, he was the University
Law College President. And now, he is contesting for the forthcoming
Lok Sabha elections with the Congress ticket, with an innate
desire to serve the poor, downtrodden and needy people, especially
of Andhra Pradesh.
He married Dr Shuchee, a gynecologist in the year 1991. The
couple have two children.
