However this led to new scenario as the moment YSRCP started announcing protest programs in 3-4 days time, TDP used to start protests on the same issue the very next day. This competition even in protests is something new which people of the state are witnessing. Insiders reveal that since TDP is getting information about the strategies and plans of YSRCP before hand through its spies, it started its protests and yatras before the party.
Sources say that even CBN started his padayatara after getting confirmed reports that YSRCP was planning for a grand padayatra soon. Now anyway Sharmila is countering him. YSRCP leaders say that Jagan planned for a massive yatra with the confidence that he would get a bail. However with TDP getting info about his yatra launched the similar program with its leader. Now sources say that with Sharmila entering fray, Babu may extend his yatra.
