‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ resumes in Washim district of Maharashtra


New Delhi: After Nanded and Hingoli districts, the ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ has reached Washim in Maharashtra. On Wednesday, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi and other supporters left the camp early in the morning continuing their march on foot.

Wayanad MP Rahul Gandhi had started the ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ on September 7 which was aimed at reviving the great party across the country. The foot march that started from Kanyakumari in Tamil Nadu will conclude in Srinagar, Kashmir.

The ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ has already covered several states like Telangana, Kerala and Andhra Pradesh.

Several public presentations will be made during its route. Gandhi walks approximately 25 kilometers every day and talks to those who join the ‘Yatra’, including local people.

The ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ is currently in Maharashtra and will enter Madhya Pradesh on November 20.

A day earlier, Congress leader Jairam Ramesh on Tuesday said the ‘Padyatra’ is “above politics” and its impact will be visible in the 2024 Lok Sabha elections.

Congress general secretary in-charge of Communications said, “Bharat Jodo Yatra is not connected with any vote bank. Its objectives are above politics. This is a yatra of a political party and includes political issues but does not it’s to gather votes.”

“The Yatra will promote unity, it has connected our party… Its effects, if any, would be felt during the 2024 elections,” he added.

Addressing the media, the Congress leader, who is one of the key leaders involved in promoting the ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’, could claim that the walk is helping the party reconnect with those it has forgotten after coming to power.

“This Yatra promotes the door-to-door contact that we had forgotten. We had forgotten when we were in power, but now we remember it with this Yatra,” added Jairam Ramesh.
