Nellore: After successfully completing his
`Odarpu yatra` (tour for consoling) in Prakasam district,
Congress MP Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy on Wednesday night began his tour in
neighbouring Nellore district.
Jagan`s yatra entered Chevuru village in Nellore district
and the Kadapa MP consoled the family of Venkateswarlu and
also unveiled a statue of his father late Y S Rajasekhara
Reddy at Rudrakota village.
Speaking on the occasion, Jagan said YSR had occupied a
permanent place in the hearts of the people because of the
innovative welfare schemes like free power for farmers, old
age pensions, tuition fees reimbursement for farmers launched
TDP`s rebel MLA N Prasanna Kumar Reddy, who has been
making critical remarks against his parent party for long,
participated in Jagan`s visit to Rudrakota village.
The young MP has undertaken the tour to console the
families of those who died after the death of his father Y S
Rajasekhara Reddy in a chopper crash in September last year.
He resumed his yatra in Prakasam district on September 3,
a day after the first death anniversary of YSR.
Congress MP from Nellore M Rajamohan Reddy and his
brother and MLA M Chandrasekhar Reddy have come out openly in
support of the yatra.
Despite Congress high command`s reservations, Jagan
resumed his controversial yatra. The party has indicated
it may not take any action against him for now.
