Enough of ‘Pada Yatras’, YCP leaders

It is widely known that YSRCP president, YS Jagan Mohan Reddy is currently in his Pada Yatra. The opposition leader has been touring almost all the assembly constituencies in the state, getting to know about the troubles being faced by the public. He is hoping to claim the cm chair by building an image for himself through his Pada Yatra, just like his father, YS Rajasekhar Reddy did.

However, things are getting a tad overboard as YCP leaders are showing over-enthusiasm by conducting Yatras on their own. A while ago, Vijaya Sai Reddy participated in Pada Yatra and toured Vijayawada constituency. Following the trend, a few YCP MLAs started similar campaigns in their respective constituencies.

The latest news is that Kadapa MP, Avinash Reddy will soon start a Pada Yatra in the constituency. It needs to be said that all the YCP leaders are hoping to cash in on the craze Jagan has attained through his Pada Yatra. They should concentrate on organizing other meet-the-public events rather than simply holding Pada Yatras in their constituencies. It is getting really odd to see one or other YCP leader kickstart a Pada Yatra every week.
