Kerala: Entering the 13th day today, the Bharat Jodo Yatra had to face legal allegations during its journey in Kerala. A plea has been moved in the Kerala High Court against Bharat Jodo Yatra. The petition has been filed by advocate K Vijayan, arguing that the Congress leader’s yatra is leading to the blocking of vehicular movement.

“Rahul Gandhi and those occupying him are occupying the entire breadth of the public road through which they are travelling. The movement of the public and vehicles are totally blocked for hours together and public are unable to move out… The petitioner has sent a request to take immediate steps to alleviate the hardships suffered by the general public arising out of this yatra,” the petition stated.

The Congress leader will lead the yatra for 15 km until Kuthiyathodu in Alappuzha and will camp in the Kochi district. The yatra in the state would end in the upcoming 12 days, Cong Gen Secretary Jairam Ramesh said. He also added that Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra will join the Bharat Jodo Yatra.

Addressing a press conference in the Alappuzha district in Kerala where the yatra entered on September 10, Ramesh said that the march has completed 275 km of its distance in total. The 3,570-km yatra started on September 7.

“We have completed 275 km of Bharat Jodo Yatra. We would have complete 285 by today. Priyanka Gandhi will join the yatra. She is working out to join in Kerala,” he said.
