    Connecting people through foot walk- The padayatra success

    Many political party leaders have succeeded in connecting with the people during their opposition period and thus won the hearts of voters by bringing in the lapses of ruling party and promising what they can do. Y S Rajasekhara Reddy did capture the power through his padayatra or foot walk and grabbed power from TDP. And later his son also came into power with same action and wrested power from Chandrababu Naidu. Now Telangana BJP leader Bandi Sanjay, Newly formed Jagan Mohan Reddy, sister Sharmila Party and even Congress want to take Padayatra to highlight the TRS failures.

    These are all political gimmicks. As mentioned by the author, YSR Reddy went for a Pada Yatra and he could know where are vacant lands available and later on, he made his followers grab those pieces of land wherever available. This is not my opinion and heard when many people are discussing this matter. After their Padayatra, many vacant places were grabbed. No benefit to the common man or poor man.
    The same is the case with Jagan's padayatra also. But there will be an advantage of meeting many people personally during this yatra. In Telangana also I don't think BJP or YSRTP can win the coming elections in Telangana in the coming electiond.

    always confident

    In case of Jagan, he hugged and kissed the people and that made him fame.

    Padyatra was started by Gandhiji. Whole the country was behind him. All the participants in the were sincere and honest in their padyatra. They marched against foreign rulers to protest against their wrong policies. After the independence several other leaders also took part in padyatra to get popularity among masses and won the elections.
    Nowadays this padyatra has been changed into political road shows where large people are.mobilised. large crowd shows that roadshow was successful, so for this purpose all means are used to call people to join these events. Political parties organise event management and spend millions of rupees on these pretentious events.

    Padayatra was initiated by Mahatma Gandhi during the period of 1930 and the prominent being being Dandiya Yatra undertaken by him to stop making any rule from preventing the common men in the collection of salted our for their own purposes. Gandhijee got the overwhelming support of the common men when they joined the agitation showing his strength to the Britishers. Though such Padayatras are still in vogue and are undertaken by the politicians for their own benefits without any consideration for the common men. In that way, there is a great contrast between the approach of Gandhijee and the present leaders.
