Degloor (Maharashtra): Senior Congress leader Rahul Gandhi received a grand welcome in Maharashtra on Monday evening, followed by a wreath-laying ceremony at Shivaji Maharaj’s statue, as the ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ ended its journey in Telangana and entered Maratha land.

During the welcome, Gandhi and ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ supporters took out a procession to the Shivaji Maharaj statue holding burning torches (Mashaals) numbering more than 3000.

Addressing a crowd in the city, Gandhi said, “come what may, no force on earth could stop the yatra until it reaches its destination in Srinagar as scheduled. I will not be deterred by transitory obstacles caused by adverse forces or natural calamities.”

The foot march arrived in Maharashtra after spending 15 days in Telangana on Monday. Telanagana Congress chief A. Revanth Reddy handed over the national flag to MPCC leader Nana Patole as a symbol of the commencement of the ‘Yatra’ in Maharashtra.

However, Congress supporters then walked nearly 9 kilometers to offer prayers at Gurdwara Yaadgari Baba Zoravar Singh ji, Fate Singh Ji in Vanali.

In Maharashtra, the Bharat Jodo ‘Yatra’ will stay for 14 days and walk 381 km through 15 assembly and 6 parliamentary constituencies.
