Congress MP Rahul Gandhi along with party leaders and workers resume ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ on the 22nd from Chungathara in Nilambur of Malappuram which started with a large number of people joining him on the streets.
In a fast-forwarded video the Bharat Jodo Yatra has seen a huge turnout. In addition to those who came to join the yatra, dozens of people lined both sides of the street to witness the ‘padayatra’ led by Rahul Gandhi.
The Yatra, which completes the Kerala stage today, was due to take a break at CKHS Manimooly in Vazhikadavu after travelling around 8.6km. Rahul Gandhi would travel to the Government College of Science and Arts at Gudalur in Tamil Nadu by car, as per the yatra itinerary.
The march was to resume from the Government Arts and Science College in Gudalur at around 5 pm and stop for the day at the Gudalur bus stop after travelling around 5.5km.
Addressing a press conference on Wednesday, Congress Leader Jairam Ramesh said: “The reactions that the INC has received in Kerala and Tamil Nadu have exceeded expectations. We expected a good response,” Ramesh said, “but we have received a fabulous response.”
Ramesh thanked the people of Kerala and the state CCP, also saying that “The Bharat Jodo Yatra is not just a political yatra, it is an ideological yatra.”
He further said, “The reception in Kerala of the Bharat Jodo Yatra has been tremendous. Tens of thousands of people walked with us, lined the streets to see us, waited patiently to hear our speeches every night, and occasionally sang songs, danced, and created a festive atmosphere.
The 3,570 km, 150-day walking march of the Congress started from Kanyakumari and will end in Jammu and Kashmir.
