Party members said that the march will be on the lines of late CM Y.S. Rajasekhara Reddy's 2004 march, which paved the way for the Congress to enter the political landscape of erstwhile united Andhra Pradesh.

He is expected to announce sops for them if Congress comes to power. A senior Congress leader told Deccan Chronicle that internal rifts among Congress leaders will be settled soon, before the constitution of organisational committees and the subsequent 'marathon padayatra.'
