Telugu Desam president N.Chandrababu Naidu's Vastunna Meekosam padayatra, which begins on October 2 from  the Hindupur Assembly constituency in Anantapur district, aims to turn people's attention to the alleged corruption in the  Union and state governments in the last eight years.

Naidu will walk 20 km every day for 117 days covering 13 districts in the first phase of the padayatra which will end in Srikakulam district on January 26. The party is preparing the blueprint of the  padayatra which will be ready in a day or two.

Naidu had undertaken Mee Kosam yatra covering all districts in 2008 and an eight-day relay hunger strike on farmers' problems in the state capital.

During his forthcoming padayatra, Naidu, who is desperate to regain power, intends to hammer into people's minds how the YSR family had looted the state when YS Rajasekhara Reddy was in power. He and his

party leaders will launch a broadside on Jagan with the ammunition provided by the CBI chargesheets in cases against Jagan.

When in Anantapur district Naidu will harp on the Obulapuram mining scam. "When YSR had undertaken a padayatra in 2003, he identified government and private lands for future usurpation and, after coming to power, occupied or handed over some properties to his loyalists,'' a TDP leader alleged.
