Telugu Desam supremo N Chandrababu Naidu resumed his Vastunna Meekosam Yatra from Kolakaluru village in Tenali mandal on Friday despite pain in the right leg.
It may be mentioned here that Naidu injured his ankle while descending from a wooden ladder after garlanding a statue on Thursday. He suspended his padayatra for 24 hours and resumed it on Friday.
A team of doctors examined Naidu twice at Gudivada village and advised him to bring down his walkathon limit to 7 km a day as against his schedule of 14 km a day. Accordingly, Naidu has decided to conclude his walkathon at Angalakuduru village, 8 km from Kolakaluru.
Earlier, the TDP chief faced troubles with ankle pain and hyperglycemia (excess of glucose in blood). He was treated by doctors and physiotherapists in a village camp.
Naidu’s son Nara Lokesh met him in the camp and enquired about his health condition. Senior TDP leader Yanamala Ramakrishnudu advised Naidu to take rest for a few more day but the TDP chief was stood adamant to resume his padayatra the next day.
A large number of students, farmers and womenfolk came to see Naidu and wished him speedy recovery.
TDP district committee president Prattipati Pulla Rao, Narasaraopeta MP Modugula Venugopala Reddy and party MLAs and other leaders participated in the padayatra.
