Congress MP Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy on Tuesday said he is not feeling isolated, as claimed by his detractors, as he has the support of lakhs of people.
"Everyone benefited in some way or other by the welfare and development measures initiated by our beloved leader Rajasekhara Reddy. That's why he has occupied a permanent place in our hearts," he said.
"He gave me such a huge family that comprises all of you. When I have the support of so many people, can any detractors of mine say that Jagan is alone or isolated?"
He was speaking at various villages in Prakasam district on the fifth day of his controversial yatra.
Jagan's assertion came against reports that majority of the Congress MLAs in Prakasam district were staying away from his yatra in view of party high command's directives.
Alleging that "several forces", including TDP chief N Chandrababu Naidu, have come together to run him down, the Kadapa MP had on Monday asserted that he is ready to fight anyone as long as he has the support of people.
"Naidu and some media houses say all of you have been brought from Kadapa. Are they not able to see your love and affection for late Rajasekhara Reddy? I ask them what mistake I am doing? They are doing politics," the 36-year-old Lok Sabha MP had said.
Jagan said he can fight with anyone in the country as long as he had the people's support.
