Rahul Gandhi is joined by former RBI governor Raghuram Rajan at the Bharat Jodo Yatra.
Raghuram Rajan, a former governor of the Reserve Bank of India (RBI), joined the Bharat Jodo Yatra, which is being led by Rahul Gandhi and is now travelling across Rajasthan, on Wednesday morning. The former RBI governor is seen in a news agency ANI video strolling alongside top Congressmen Sachin Pilot and Rahul Gandhi as part of the party’s outreach initiative.
The former RBI chief, a strong opponent of demonetisation, had previously voiced worries about India’s economic expansion and budget deficit. In his autobiography, “I Do What I Do,” Rajan acknowledged that he opposed demonetization because he believed that any short-term economic losses connected with such a disruptive choice would outweigh any long-term advantages.
The foot march started again this morning in Sawai Madhopur, Rajasthan, from Bhadoti.
As of now, the yatra has travelled through Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Telangana, Maharashtra, and Madhya Pradesh since it began in Kanyakumari on September 7. Early February 2023 will see Jammu and Kashmir host the conclusion.
The Bharat Jodo Yatra has so far drawn in the participation of a number of politicians, movie stars, activists, and former bureaucrats.
According to AICC general secretary Jairam Ramesh on Tuesday, the Congress will host a concert in Jaipur on Friday to commemorate the 100th day of the Bharat Jodo Yatra. Sunidhi Chauhan will play live at the event.
Rahul Gandhi, one of the top Congressmen, will attend the “Bharat Jodo Concert” and speak at a news conference that day at 1 p.m. in Dausa.
At a news conference held here, Ramesh stated, “The (Bharat Jodo) Yatra) will finish 100 days on December 16 and it would be a milestone.”
