YS Jaganmohan Reddy’s Odarpu Yatra is all set to start in Warangal district from May 28, which may see a direct confrontation between the supporters of Jagan and his opponents. The Kadapa MP reiterated that this Odarpu Yatra is a personal agenda and did not have any political overtones.

The Kadapa MP has already met such families in Khammam and East Godavari.

Warangal, meanwhile , braced up for the upcoming storm with the district observing a complete bandh on Tuesday to protest Jagan’s visit.
