Ambiguity marks copy cat Naidu's Yatra

Amid allegations by various political parties that his
117-day ‘Meekosam Vastunna’ Padayatra is only aimed at regaining political

promised people he would stand by the poor and his Yatra is aimed at doing
justice to the poor. But he didn’t give any assurances on how he would stand by
the poor and how his Yatra would do justice to them.

At one or two places, Naidu has said he was inspired by

assertions of YSRCP leaders that the former chief minister is only intending to
regain the lost political power through his ‘Meekosam Vastunna’yatra as he
failed to come out with any solution to the nagging problems the people are
