Rahul Gandhi To Launch Bharat Jodo Yatra Today

Kanyakumari: Eyeing the 2024 elections, the Congress is all set to commence the Bharat Jodo Yatra from Kanyakumari today.

Rahul Gandhi started his day with a visit to his father Rajiv Gandhi’s memorial in Tamil Nadu’s Sriperumbudur, where the former Prime Minister was killed in a suicide attack on May 21, 1991.

Opposition smacked the grand old party’ for allegeding it had a political angle. Leaders of the Congress, however, denied any political angle and insisted that the yatra “is meant to unite the country”.

The 3,500 kilometre-long-yatra, dubbed by the Congress as the “longest march” organised in the country over the last century, will be launched at around 5 pm with a rally, and the ‘padyatra’ or foot march will begin on Thursday morning.

Led by Rahul Gandhi, Congress workers and leaders will walk in two batches between 7 am and 6.30 pm every day, to cover 12 states and two union territories over the next 150 days.
