Congress leaders launch ‘padayatra'

Staff Reporter

Aim is to strengthen the cadre, say organisers


Participants to propagate the good work done by Rosaiah

Jagan supporters not taking part in it


KAKINADA: A group of Congress leaders, headed by Andhra Pradesh Congress Committee secretary Pantam Nanaji and city Mayor Kavikondala Saroja launched ‘Rajiv Sadbhavana Padayatra' from Kakinada to Annavaram on Friday. The leaders stated that the objective of their ‘yatra' was to strengthen the party cadre in the district and propagate the good work done by Chief Minister K. Rosaiah.

Both Mr. Nanaji and Ms. Saroja did not turn up for the ‘Odarpu Yatra' of Kadapa MP Y.S. Jaganmohan Reddy in the district. Chairman of the Andhra Pradesh Industrial Infrastructure Corporation (APIIC) S. Sivarama Subrahmanyam, MLAs -- Tota Narasimham (Tuni), Kosuri Kasi Viswanath (Rampachodavaram) and other leaders participated in the flagging-off of the yatra at Sarpavaram junction. Former MLAs -- Chitturi Ravindra, Varupula Subba Rao, chairpersons of Tuni, Samalkot and Pithapuram municipalities -- K. Sobha Rani, G. Venkata Lakshmi and V. Sujatha respectively -- and other leaders were present.

Mr. Nanaji exuded confidence that all the Congress MLAs and other leaders from the district would join the ‘yatra' as it was aimed at propagating the objectives of late former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi and to promote the leadership of Rahul Gandhi at the Centre. The supporters of Mr. Jagan, including Kakinada MLA D. Chandrasekhar Reddy, however, did not turn up for the ‘yatra'.

No meetings

The ‘padayatra' would reach Annavaram by Saturday evening after covering a distance of 60 km. “There are no scheduled meetings in the tour. We will address the party workers en route and relieve them of all the confusions about the party's leadership in the State,” Ms. Saroja said.

The organisers arranged huge banners of Mr. Rosaiah and district in-charge Minister Botcha Satyanarayana, while workers carried flags of Mr. Rahul Gandhi. “It is a party programme, which is aimed at strengthening the cadre,” Mr. Nanaji said.
