In what is seen as a “masterstroke” by Congress for the upcoming 2024 general election, Congressman Rahul Gandhi is expected to launch the party’s Bharat Jodo Yatra from Kanyakumari today.

  1. Rahul Gandhi visited his father and former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi’s memorial at Sriperumbudur in Tamil Nadu. He will also attend an event at Mahatma Gandhi Mandapam in Kanyakumari where Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MP Stalin will present him with a khadi national flag for the launch of the yatra, party sources said.

  2. The 3,500-kilometre-long yatra, dubbed by Congress the “longest political march” organized in the country in the last century, will be launched around 5 p.m. with a rally, and the “padyatra” or march will begin on Thursday. Morning.

  3. Led by Rahul Gandhi, thousands of workers and congressional leaders will march approximately six to seven hours a day to cover 12 states and two union territories over the next 150 days. All state unit presidents and leaders of the Congress Legislative Party would organize the “Bharat Jodo Yatra” in their respective states, the party said in a statement.

  4. The Congress has declared that Rahul Gandhi will march from Kashmir to Kanyakumari – where the yatra will end. Claiming a rise in social polarization and political centralization in India, Rahul Gandhi had previously said that the yatra was for him like a “tapasya” to unite the country.
