Raipur, The ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ has been started by the Indian National Congress from 7 September with the aim of establishing dialogue with the people of the country, making the public aware of the current social, political and economic issues of the country. Which is led by Congress leader Rahul Gandhi himself. Rahul Gandhi has started this journey from Kanyakumari in the south end of India. Before the start of the yatra, Rahul Gandhi reached Perumbudur early in the morning at the place where his father, former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi was assassinated. After this, Rahul Gandhi reached Gandhi Mandapam, Vivekananda Memorial, Kamaraj Memorial in Kanyakumari in the evening and also took blessings before the journey.
In a conversation with Ayush Pandey, social media co-ordinator of the Indian National Congress about this visit, he said that this yatra is going to be a big political event in this century. He said that the 3570 km padyatra from Kashmir to Kanyakumari is the longest ever undertaken by any politician or political party. It is not just a journey but a penance. The coming generations will know it in the same way as we know Dandi March and Quit India Movement.
Let us tell you that in this journey, 117 people will always be with Rahul Gandhi as travellers of India. These passengers have been selected from different states across the country. All these passengers have to undergo physical tests etc. before the journey. Apart from this, from where the yatra will pass, local people of the Congress unit will take part in this yatra, as well as during this time Rahul Gandhi will also be seen meeting the local people and will also be seen participating in small programs.
