Day 5: Huge response for Jagan yatra

Huge crowds continued to cheer Chief Minister Y.S. Jagan Mohan Reddy along the route of the Memantha Siddham Bus Yatra in the region.

The fifth day of the yatra commenced from the Sanjeevapuram campsite in Bathalapalli mandal under the Dharmavaram Assembly segment in Satya Sai district on Monday.

The Chief Minister celebrated Easter at Sanjeevapuram on Sunday, with no scheduled meetings.

As the CM's yatra progressed, internal dissent persisted among leaders of the Opposition TD and other parties.

A DSP who resigned from his job after being assured by the TD high command that he would be fielded in the Assembly polls was left disappointed when TD chief Chandrababu Naidu failed to honor the promise.

During the yatra, he joined the YSRC in the presence of the Chief Minister at the Sanjeevapuram campsite.

Venugopal had been encouraged to join the TD with the promise of receiving the party ticket for the Puttaparthi Assembly segment, but instead, the party fielded the daughter-in-law of former minister Palle Raghunath Reddy.

Former ZPTC of Amadagur mandal, Potta Purushottam Reddy, and Potta Mallikharjuna Reddy also joined the YSRC in the presence of Jagan Mohan Reddy at Sanjeevapuram.

Additionally, V. Hanok, former MPP from Lepakshi village, Hindupur constituency, TD leader Chandra Dandu, and state vice president Ansar Ahmed joined the YSRC in the presence of the Chief Minister.

The Bus Yatra received a tremendous response from Sanjeevapuram to Kadiri town. Thousands of people gathered at every village to greet the CM.

The road was swarmed by huge crowds of the public and party cadres, causing a delay of more than half an hour to cross Mudigubba mandal headquarters as they urged the CM on.

The Chief Minister alighted from the bus, interacted with the people, and took a picture with a woman suffering from a skin disease at Mudigubba.

He tweeted: "These are my star campaigners."

After covering Mudigubba mandal headquarters, the bus yatra reached Kadiri municipality, where people switched on their mobile phones as a mark of support for the YSRC and its government.

Jagan Mohan Reddy attended the Iftar organized by the local Muslims at PVR function hall.

The leaders urged Muslims to support the YSRC, highlighting the government's assistance to minorities over the past five years and the continuation of four percent reservations.
