Prof Nageshwar has said that Jana Sena Party chief Pawan Kalyan’s popularity will not grow just by doing a padayatra in Vijayawada. He termed padayatra as an event and continuing in politics as a process. Nageshwar has quoted examples of former Chief Minister YS Rajasekhara Reddy’s padayatra and Chandrababu’s padayatra as an opposition leader. He has stated that padayatras will give an opportunity for political leaders to interact with people and help them to grow their career graphs. Nageshwar has appreciated Pawan Kalyan for trying to be a full-time politician.
