    Roads are not worth walking....if you use footpath and road side...its a disturbance to pedestrians , cyclists and two wheelers! If you really want to walk do it between Kuloor and Surathkal .....that will be a first hand experience to our MPs only fly and hardly use roads! Let him talk to Ghatkari if feels roads are not worthy! I guess its high time dissolve NHI and hand it over to Indian of a common man will be lot better! This Padayathra is waste of time!

    This is the limit of POLITICS ! They didnt killed the MAHATHMA but they killed his ideology and OUR HOWDY ordered for the PADAYATRA to defame again his ideology as RSS and MAHATHAMA are entirely different ideologies which illiterate people cant understand it.

    This nalini drop out from school who doesnt know how many districts are there in our state. May be he will be thinking INDIRA GANDHI also a freedom fighter !!
