The Indian National Congress has planned to conduct the 'Bharat Jodo Yatra' across all districts in the country on September 7, in honour of the yatra's first anniversary.
Last year, the Bharat Jodo Yatra commenced on September 7 from Kanyakumari under the guidance of Congress leader Rahul Gandhi. It wrapped up its remarkable journey on January 30 in Srinagar.
This yatra covered a distance of 3,970 km, through 12 states, and two Union territories, and extended for over 130 days. During the initial phase of the yatra, Gandhi covered an impressive distance of nearly 4,000 km, walking from Kanyakumari to Kashmir.
In the previous month, Nana Patole, the Chief of Maharashtra Congress, revealed that Rahul Gandhi was scheduled to initiate a new padayatra (foot march) from Gujarat to Meghalaya.
He also announced that in the meanwhile, leaders and party workers from the Maharashtra unit would travel and conduct outreach activities across the state.
Rahul Gandhi's yatra had a noticeable influence on the electoral outcomes in Karnataka and Himachal Pradesh, where the Congress party witnessed a significant increase in both strike rate and vote share.
The Yatra covered a distance of 511 km in Karnataka over a period of 22 days, stretching from the Gundlupet constituency to the Raichur Rural constituency.
