Rahul Gandhi To Launch Congress Mega Bharat Jodo Yatra Today

Rahul Gandhi, the head of the Congress, is beginning the massive “Bharat Jodo Yatra,” which will run for around 150 days and traverse 3,570 kilometers from Kanyakumari to Kashmir. 

According to Congress, the padyatra’s goal is to eradicate enmity; elections are not on the agenda. 

So while the Yatra will officially begin today, September 7, when Gandhi and other Congress leaders set out on the march, it will get underway at 7 am on September 8. 

According to Congress, it is a “decisive moment” for the party’s renewal and a “transformational moment” for Indian politics.

Here are the Bharat Jodo Yatra’s top ten points:

1) In around five months, the 3,570 km march from Kanyakumari to Srinagar will pass through 12 states and two Union Territories.

2) There will be two batches for the foot march: one from 3:30 pm to 6:30 pm and the other from 7 am to 10:30 am. 

Few people will attend the morning session, but there will be a large turnout for the evening session. 

The participants aim to walk 22 to 23 kilometers each day on average.

3) 119 political figures, Rahul Gandhi, have been designated as “Bharat Yatris” who would walk far from Kanyakumari to Srinagar. 

Women make up around 30% of the “Bharat Yatris.” The participants are 38 on average.

4) On September 11, the “padayatra” will arrive in Kerala. It will then travel across the state for the following 18 days, arriving in Karnataka on September 30. 

After spending 21 days in Karnataka, it will go to other northern states.

5) The pilgrimage will begin in Tamil Nadu in Kanyakumari and proceed north, stopping at Thiruvananthapuram, Kochi, Nilambur, Mysuru, Bellary, Raichur, Vikarabad, Nanded, Jalgaon, Indore, Kota, Dausa, Alwar, Bulandshahr, Delhi, Ambala, Pathankot, Jammu, and ending in Srinagar.

6) According to Congress, Rahul Gandhi would not stay in a hotel but would straightforwardly make the entire trip. 

So the following 150 days will see him remain in the container. Some of the containers also include AC, sleeping mattresses, and restrooms.

7) While planning for the trip, it was considered that the climate and environment would vary in several locations along the route. 

“A hamlet has been established in Kanyakumari, where all of these containers have been installed, and around 60 of these containers have been constructed and delivered there. 

Every day, a new location in the form of a hamlet will be chosen for the container to be parked for the night. 

Rahul Gandhi’s full-time yatris would dine together and socialize often, “the sources said.

The participants in the yatra are divided into four groups: “Bharat Yatris,” “Atithi Yatris,” “Pradesh Yatris,” and “Volunteer Yatris.” The yatra’s slogan is “Mile Kadam, Jude Watan.”

Priyanka Gandhi Vadra asked people to participate in the Yatra in a video message. She said that since “negative politics were being practised throughout the nation and serious concerns were not being acknowledged,” the Yatra was necessary.

She added that it attempts to draw attention to problems affecting individuals, such as price increases and unemployment.

10) Himanta Biswa Sarma, the BJP chief minister of Assam, made fun of the “Barat Jodo Yatra” of his previous party. 

He said that because of the 1947 partition of India, the Bharat Jodo Yatra could not be launched in India. 

“What advantages does doing this Yatra in India offer? India is unified and linked. Rahul Gandhi should visit Pakistan with the Bharat Jodo Yatra programme, in my opinion.”
