VIJAYAWADA: Chief Minister YS Jagan Mohan Reddy on Monday resumed his Memantha Siddham yatra after taking one-day break owing to the injury he suffered in an attack by an unidentified miscreant in Vijayawada.

Jagan was hit by a stone on his forehead during his yatra in the Vijayawada city on Saturday last. After administering first-aid in his cavalcade itself, he was treated at the Government General Hospital, Vijayawada.

As he developed swelling, he was advised to take rest for a day. Jagan stayed at the Kesarapalle camp the whole Sunday. On Monday, a volley of party leaders called on him at his camp site.

Before starting off his journey, Jagan expressed gratitude for the outpouring love and support of the people post the attack and told his leaders the need to stand firm against such cowardly acts. He further instructed the party leaders to double up their efforts and make sure Memantha Siddham is an even bigger success than what it currently is.

Meanwhile, the NTR district police announced a reward of Rs 2 lakh to the person who passes on information or video recordings of the attack that would lead to nabbing the accused.
