Defying warnings by the Congress high command, Kadapa MP YS Jaganmohan Reddy continued his 'Odarpu Yatra' in his native Pulivendula constituency for the second day on Tuesday.

Jagan consoled families of six persons who died either of shock or committed suicide following the death of his father and former Chief Minister YS Rajasekhara Reddy last September.

Starting from Peda Juturu village under Vemula mandal, Jagan visited Velpula, Chakrayapet, Gandi and Vempalli. He also paid a visit to the Hanuman temple at Gandi and offered prayers.

The MP unveiled the statue of his late father at Kondavaripalli village amidst scores of people who had gathered to greet their leader.

Pulivendula is the family fiefdom of Y S Rajasekhara Reddy and his widow Vijayalakshmi represents the constituency in the state assembly. It falls under the Kadapa Lok Sabha segment, which is represented by Jagan.

Though he defied the Congress high command by undertaking the yatra in his home constituency, Jagan, however, has refrained from making any political comments so far and limited his tour to consoling the bereaved families.
