Because of his weak leadership skills and refusal to take charge of his own party following a string of electoral disasters, the bharatiya janata party leaders frequently referred to him as "Pappu." rahul himself had actually lost his Amethi seat and was able to win election as an mp in Kerala's Wayanad, a stronghold for the Congress.
But after rahul made the audacious decision to walk from Kanyakumari to Kashmir, one could clearly see a significant difference in him, and the way people perceived him also altered. He might still not be able to compete with narendra Modi, but it undoubtedly helped him develop as a mass leader. people are now speculating about whether Nara Lokesh, general secretary of the telugu desam party and son of the party's president N Chandrababu Naidu, will benefit in any way from his marathon padayatra, which will start at kuppam on Friday.
