Palakkad: “Jai Ho” which is the mega walkathon or the padhayatra led by District Congress Committee President VK Sreekandan is going on here with huge participation from the women party workers.
The first meeting of the third day was inaugurated by former Palakkad MP VS Vijayaraghavan at Polpully.
The walkathon is gaining immense popularity among the residents and party workers here.
What has surprised the leaders is the escalating partaking of women at the welcoming centers of the Padhayatra. They (leaders) consider this as an enormous success of the walkathon.
The party men have come to a conclusion that the Padhayatra led by Sreekandan will overthrow the previous one back in 1977, which was led by P Balan.
Keeping aside the group fray, all the party workers backed Sreekandan in his yathra, which has seriously become a concern for the dominant CPM faction. Last Lok Sabha election had seen a whopping victory of CPM’s MB Rajesh in this constituency.
The walkathon will conclude at Palakkad town after covering 361 kilometers through 88 panchayats and 7 corporations in five days on March 14th. Public meetings and rallies are also been organized on the concluding day.
