On their  arrival Gottupati Sreenivasa Rao ,  the Congress MLA  fro  Addanki  said that  they were  told  by the High Command that they should not participate in Odarpu Yatra under any circumstances.

The MLAs who held meeting with union minister Panabaka Lakshmi in the morning and Sonia Gandhi’s political advisor Ahmed Patel in the evening, dashed off a letter to Jagan, saying that the “Odarpu Yatra” was turning out to be a show of strength causing a lot of embarrassment to the Congress MLAs.

They found fault with him for making public the discussions he had with Sonia Gandhi and going against her wishes by taking up the “political yatra” using the Congress cadres. They reminded that the Congress high command had offered Jagan a berth in the Union cabinet. They advised him to follow the commitment and sincerity of Rahul Gandhi in strengthening the party and the country, without aspiring for any post or position in the government.
