The Congress mega rally has passed through Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka which has now reached Telangana.
Congress MP Rahul Gandhi started a foot march from Kanniyakumar on 7 September. The ‘Padyatra’ would end in Kashmir the following year.
Before reaching Maharashtra on November 7, the Yatra would pass through 19 assembly and 7 parliamentary seats in the state and would cover a total distance of 375 km.
The old party has claimed that the ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ was the first longest foot march by a politician in Indian history.
Meanwhile in Telangana
The ‘Yatra’ will cover 19 assembly constituencies and 7 parliamentary constituencies during his 16-day journey covering 375 km.
In a highlight of yesterday’s visit, Rahul Gandhi dressed up symbolically as Potharaju, a character in the annual Bonalu processions in the state.
In his public address, Gandhi assured Congress’ support to private sector workers and said, “I want to tell every public sector worker that you need not be afraid. Congress stands by you, fights, but won’t allow privatization of power sources”
On Thursday, Gandhi met several students of Osmania University who complained that their concerns about the formation of Tribal College have been ignored. They also opposed the New Education Policy (NEP) 2020 introduced by the Narendra Modi government in 2020.
