Eleswaram Mandal YSRCP Convenor Kasepu Nookapathi Rao bid adieu to the party along with his 200 followers. It is being seen as big blow to YSRCP. Jagan will be visiting Prathipadu as part of Praja Sankalpa Yatra starting from Kathipudi in East Godavari.
At this crucial time, key leader of the district quiting the party has taken center stage of discussions in the region. Kasepu Nookapathi Rao has strong hold in the region as his father Kasepu Surya Rao has been Sarpanch unanimously in Bhadravaram for 35 years.
