The Yatra, which began in Kanyakumari, Tamil Nadu, has completed Kerala and is now shifting through Karnataka, with the pace quickening as Sonia Gandhi joins Rahul in the walk. Rahul Gandhi resumed his Yatra on Thursday from Pandavapura in the Mandya district after taking two days off to rest up for Dussehra.
Due to her ill health, Sonia Gandhi has missed numerous public events in recent years, including election campaign rallies. Congress party members are enthused about her participation in this Yatra, a significant public event, after many years of taking this position. DK Shivakumar, the head of the Karnataka Congress, said as Sonia Gandhi joined the march, "After Vijayadashami, there will be Vijaya in Karnataka. We are proud that Sonia Gandhi has come to walk on the streets of Karnataka. We are coming to power in the state, and BJP is on the way to shutting its shop."
Indian Youth Congress taking the president in the roadshow as a pride moment, as it says "This is the land where she wishes to breathe her last breath. This is her country, this is her fight! #BharatJodoWithSoniaGandhi." "The woman has given 48 years of her life in the service of this nation. The BJP/RSS missed no chance to shame her but she stood tall and strong. This is her commitment undeterred and unending," added another thread shared on its Twitter handle on Thursday. With the Yatra, the Congress said it wants to combat the alleged divisive politics of the BJP-led Central government.
After opening the march in Karnataka, she toured to Jakannahalli and joined it along with local women MLAs Anjali Nimbalkar, Roopakala, and Lakshmi Hebbalkar. The march began at Pandavapura Taluk at 6.30 am and ended at Nagamangala Taluk at 7 pm. Over the course of 21 days, the Yatra will travel 511 km through Karnataka. The districts of Chamarajanagar, Mysuru, Mandya, Tumakuru, Chitradurga, Ballari, and Raichur will all be included in the yatra.
The aim of this Yatra is to unite India; to come together and strengthen our nation. The Yatra began on 7th September from Kanyakumari and will pass through 12 states, culminating in Jammu and Kashmir – spanning a distance of nearly 3,500 Km over the course of about 150 days, with only aim to spread the tag, ''India belongs to us all".
