Incessant rains in Nellore district have forced to defer the Odarpu Yatra till further notice.

According to Member of Parliament Mekapati Rajmohan Reddy, the Yatra has been deferred keeping in view the health of Kadapa MP YS Jaganmohan Reddy and to avoiding causing inconvenience to the large number of people expected to take part in the Yatra.

Mr Rajmohan Reddy told media persons that the Odarpu Yatra will resume as per its schedule, in Kovvuru and Indukurupet, on Sunday.
