Rahul Gandhi resumes the final part of the Congress’ Bharat Jodo Yatra in Karnataka, and Priyanka Gandhi might join
Rahul Gandhi, the leader of the Congress, travelled from Andhra Pradesh to Karnataka to continue the Bharat Jodo Yatra.
After finishing the Andhra Pradesh part of the Bharat Jodo Yatra on Friday, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi began the final leg in Karnataka. The padayatra travelled from Mantralaya in Andhra Pradesh to the Raichur district of Karnataka. Party sources stated that Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, a different Gandhi family scion, will probably participate in the padayatra on Saturday. Since September 7, Rahul Gandhi has been in charge of the Bharat Jodo Yatra, which will travel 3,500 kilometres from Kanniyakumari to Jammu and Kashmir. The yatra aims to bring India together in opposition to splintering forces. At six in the morning, the padayatra recommenced from Mantralaya Temple Circle in Andhra Pradesh. At 10 a.m., it will enter Gillesegur in the Raichur district of Karnataka.
The district will be the location of the Congress leaders’ three-day padayatra. The padayatra will pass through Yaragera, Raichur City, and Shakthinagar before crossing the Tungabhadra Bridge.
Throughout the Yatra, Rahul Gandhi is connecting with the locals and farmers. He is residing at the Yaragera village’s Ranganatha Swamy Temple. The padayatra will enter Telangana on October 23. The job assigned to the Congress leaders is to assemble 20,000–30,000 persons for the yatra.
To maintain security, the police department has dispatched 2,000 officers. The state’s citizens have so far responded positively to Padayatra. In the Mandya district of south Karnataka, Sonia Gandhi had also briefly participated in the padayatra.
The leaders of the Congress party are optimistic about the padayatra and insist that the party has earned the proper traction in the lead-up to the state Assembly elections. In Karnataka, the elections are set for six more months.
It has been determined by the Congress leaders’ internal poll that they will win the state Assembly elections with a simple majority.
