Jaganmohan Reddy is bracing up for another show of strength on the 18th day of his Odarpu Yatra. The travelling show is to culminate into a public meeting at Kakinada in East Godavari today where Jagan will be joined by his 25-30 loyal MLAs and minister Pilli Subashchandra Bose.
Though Jagan might not make any political statement, sources said the meeting ostensibly is aimed at demonstrating his “mass appeal and rising popularity”. Highly-placed sources said the message to the party high command at the meeting would be that “Jagan is indispensable and that he is the only crowd puller who can inspire the party ranks in the state.”
However, Jagan’s show may literally become a damp squib as the metereological department predicts heavy rains in coastal Andhra which includes East Godavari.
