The next phase of Rahul Gandhi’s ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ is about to kick off, commencing from Gujarat and stretching all the way to the northeastern state of Meghalaya.
Nana Patole, the Maharashtra Congress chief, confirmed this development during a media address, revealing that within the state, party leaders will concurrently conduct a parallel march.
Patole stated, “The second leg of Rahul Gandhi’s Bharat Jodo Yatra is set to begin from Gujarat and extend to Meghalaya.”
Prominent Congress figures will spearhead the march across various regions of the western state.
During the inaugural leg of the yatra, Gandhi embarked on a nearly 4,000 km journey from Kanyakumari to Kashmir.
The Bharat Jodo Yatra, which embarked from Kanyakumari on September 7 last year, concluded on January 30 in Srinagar, encompassing a distance of 3,970 km, spanning 12 states, and touching two Union territories. The journey persisted for over 130 days.
