Padayatra aimed at serving people: Jaiwardhan

Guna (MP): Congress General Secretary Digvijay Singh`s son Jaiwardhan said that it would be wrong to say that his six-day `padayatra` marked his entry into politics. The young Singh told PTI during his yatra on Sunday that he was walking on foot only to serve the people.

Answering questions, Jaiwardhan said the response to his padayatra was very good and people were coming from far-off places to be with him. He said that before he embarked on the march, his father had told him that people may know him but it was now his turn to know them.

"I did not feel any discomfort during the padayatra which was being conducted to know the problems of the people," Jaiwardhan said.
