  • YSRCP supremo YS Jagan is on a three-day visit to UK.
  • He is visiting his daughter who studies at the London School of Economics.
  • He reportedly said he wanted to visit her as he will be busy for the next eight months with the state-wide tour.

Opposition leader and YSRCP (Yuvajana Sramika Rythu Congress Party) supremo YS Jaganmohan Reddy will be leaving Hyderabad on a 3-day tour to London on Saturday morning to visit his eldest daughter YS Harsha who is pursuing her graduation in the London School of Economics.

Jagan will be busy the coming eight months as his proposed ‘Praja Sankalpa’ padayatra (foot march) will commence from November 6. Jagan will cover 3000 kms in 125 constituencies from Idupulapaya in Kadapa district to Ichapuram in Srikakulam district.

On November 3, Jagan will go to Tirumala and have darshan of Lord Balaji on the next day. He will be visiting Kadapa Durgah and Kedandral Church in Kadapa on November 5 to offer prayers. He would reach Idupulapaya on that night and pay tributes to his father, late YS Rajasekhar Reddy at YSR Ghat in Idupulapaya on the morning of November 6.

Jagan will participate in 5000 roadside meetings and 125 public gatherings. During the padayatra, Jagan would send the message that YSRCP belonged to all sections of people irrespective of caste, creed and region. He will also comply with the Court directive to return to the city every week on Friday to attend the Court proceedings and resume the walk the next day.

Since Jagan will not be able to visit his daughter in London for the next eight months, he is travelling to London to see her before the padayatra that will start on November 6.
