Announcing the schedule at the 10th Yuva Bheri programme held here on Tuesday, Mr Jagan Mohan Reddy said, “My padayatra will begin from Idupulapaya and the course would run from Chittoor to Ichchapuram, covering the entire state. The padayatra will continue for six months and cover about 3,000 km to meet people from all parts.”
