MADURAI (Tamil Nadu), Oct 28 (IANS): Senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader L.K. Advani will continue his Jan Chetna Yatra Friday, but possibly with a minor change in the route after explosives were found under a bridge at a village near here, the party said.

A pipe bomb was found in Alampatti near Madurai, around 450 km from Chennai where Advani launched the second leg of the Jan Chetna Yatra began Friday morning.

"I am sitting in the same van with Advaniji, we are moving from Madurai in Tamil Nadu on the way to Thiruvananthapuram, we also heard some reports but we are safe and sound. The yatra is going on...we are proceeding with the yatra," Ravi Shankar Prasad, the BJP spokesperson, said.

"I have heard that some minor adjustment has been made. Police have done their duty by finding the explosives," Prasad told Times Now news channel.

A police officer said: "Some people found the bomb under the bridge on which Advani was supposed to travel and informed police."

"As far as Advaniji is concerned, whenever he takes a yatra, he never gets perturbed or distracted by these kind of interferences. We have already covered nearly 3,800 km and today (Friday) is the 18th day of the yatra, we are not impact by these kind of threats," Prasad added.

Advani's Jan Chetna Yatra, aimed at fighting black money and corruption, started Oct 11 and will end Nov 20.
