   Congress MP YS Jaganmohan Reddy  who is in Delhi to attend a meeting of the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Finance, reiterated that the Odarpu Yatra  was to console family members of those who committed suicide or died of shock following the death of his father De  Y S Rajasekhar Reddy.

Interacting  with  the  media here on Monday,  he defended his controversial rally that triggered violence in  Mahbubabad and said it was for the  sake of  his father he  has taken the Odarpu Yatra.

"Whatever I'm doing is for my father. I'm sure the Congress president Sonia will understand my point," the Kadapa MP, added.

 I would like to make it  clear to the senior Congress leaders that this is not a  politically motivated tour. Some leaders have misinterpreted this tour as a visit to gain political mileage. That is the reason why I came here to clarify on this issue,’’ Jagan explained.

If any one can establish that during the Odarpu Yatra I have passed  any    comments either on a political leader or  a political party then I  will  quit  from Lok Sabha,’’ the Congress MP  threw the challenge.

 He said the  decision to go  on Odarpu Yatra  was not taken recently it was taken  long back at Pavuralagutta. The  Odarpu  Yatra will continue at any cost.
