Andhra Pradesh DGP N Sambasiva Rao granted permission to YSR Congress Party President Y S Jaganmohan Reddy on Saturday, for his scheduled his padayatra, to be launched at Idupulapaya in Kadapa district on November 6. 

The nod was given after senior YSRCP leaders Ummareddi Venkateswarlu, Botsa Satyanarayana and KP Saradhi met the DGP at his Mangalagiri office and submitted a letter. 

“As Mr. Jagan Mohan Reddy has `Z+Category’ security, we will follow the protocol and provide security to him. Instructions have been given to the SPs of all the districts to beef security for the padayatra," the DGP was quoted as saying.

He also said that a 'route map' should be submitted to the police, and an undertaking should be given, stating that it would be a peaceful yatra. 

The DGP also asked the YSRCP leaders to submit details in advance to ensure smooth security and traffic arrangements.

On Friday morning, YS Jaganmohan Reddy visited the holy temple town of Tirumala.

The YSRCP said that Jagan had travelled to Tirupati. "to seek blessings before embarking on a 3,000 km long Praja Sankalpa Yatra."

Jagan’s 'Praja Sankalpa Padayatra', which is set to take off on November 6, aims to cover 13 districts and a distance of 3,000 km, in a duration of six months.

The party will highlight the ‘failures of the Chandrababu Naidu government’ and stress on the need for Special Category Status (SCS) for Andhra, which is ultimately aimed at unseating the ruling TDP government.

While the YSRCP is claiming that it is a Yatra to highlight people's problems, TDP lawmakers have dubbed it a "Yatra for power", as Jagan as his eyes set on the Chief Minister's seat.

Jagan's party has also decided to boycott the winter session of the Andhra Pradesh Assembly, which will begin in the second week of November.
