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
by him.

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.
