Jana Sena party president Pawan Kalyan has started the second phase of his ‘Praja Porata Yatra’ in Eluru of West Godavari district in Andhra Pradesh. Earlier in May, Pawan had toured in the interior parts of Srikakulam district. In the yatra this time, Pawan is reaching out to people across West Godavari district in as many as seven assembly constituencies.

As part of his yatra, Pawan Kalyan will interact with different sections of people, including women, auto drivers and farmers, and even religious organisations. On Monday, Pawan interacted with the party cadres separately in Eluru before starting his yatra.

On Tuesday, he interacted with Auto Drivers Associations, assuring the autorickshaw drivers community of his support in all their causes. He said that if the Jana Sena forms the government, it will ensure to bring a tax-free policy for the autorickshaw drivers. He also said that he will try to introduce a policy that will give social and financial security to the community.

During the interaction, several auto drivers explained their problems and the alleged harassment by road transport and police authorities in the name of rules.

Later, Pawan also met members of Pastors Association in Eluru. In addition to listening to the problems faced by the community members, he also took part in a prayer meeting with the pastors.

Speaking to the pastors, Pawan stressed that all religions must receive equal treatment and that no one should be discriminated against based on their mode of worship.

While addressing the media before setting off on the tour, Pawan said the yatra will last for nine to 11 days in West Godavari district, where he will meet the farmers, who are yet to receive the compensation and resettlement package for the lands they have given for Polavaram multipurpose irrigation project.

Incidentally, during the first phase of his yatra in June, Pawan had spoken about the illegal mining in Vishakapatnam. At the second phase, when a local media channel asked him about the maoist killings of TDP MLA Kidari Sarveshwar Rao and ex MLA Siveri Soma, he said, “I believe this situation would not have happened if the government had introduced a responsible mining policy to prevent over-exploitation of the mining quarries.”
