Kadapa MP YS Jaganmohan Reddy embarked on his Odarpu Yatra in defiance of the dictates of the Congress High Command. Today he boarded the Fuluknama Express from Secunderabad railway station and proceeding to Srikakulam, where he will commence his Odarpu Yatra coinciding with the birthday of his father late YS Rajasekhar Reddy.
Andhra Pradesh chief minister K Rosaiah in unequivocal terms described the Odarpu Yatra as an act of rebellion against the Congress high command. Rumours are rife that Jaganmohan Reddy may invoke the wrath of the congress party and he may be expelled. There are reports that Jagan may start his own political outfit.
