The Bharat Jodo Yatra 2.0: a renewed journey initiated by Rahul Gandhi, an eminent Congress leader, reignites belief in unity and solidarity among Indian masses. This power-packed rally is set to commence from the culturally rich lands of Gujarat, traversing through the heart of India, eventually culminating in the scenic state of Meghalaya.
Unleashing Bharat Jodo Yatra 2.0
Senior party leader Jairam Ramesh earlier hinted about commencing a march from Porbandar in Gujarat to Pasighat in Arunachal Pradesh ‘before November’. The corroborating news is out now.
Maharashtra Congress chief Nana Patole has confirmed that Rahul Gandhi’s Bharat Jodo Yatra would witness party leaders marching in parallel from within the state.
Bharat Jodo Yatra 2.0 will be steered by prominent Congress leaders in different parts of the western state. The first leg of this march had seen its dawn in September last year and had continued for above 130 days, traversing 12 states and two Union Territories before finally concluding in the tranquil valleys of Kashmir.
“The second phase should begin from the state,” declared Amit Chavda, State Leader of Opposition, evidently excited about the rally initiating from the ‘land of Mahatma Gandhi and Sardar Patel.’. The preparation is in full swing with a committee chalking out the finer details of Bharat Jodo Yatra. The anticipation surrounding this phase is contagious, with numerous state units laying out suggestions for the rally route.
According to Jairam Ramesh, Bharat Jodo Yatra 2.0 could be more than just a padyatra. Given the geographical traits of the route covering jungles and rivers, a multi-modal approach is anticipated.
The upcoming state polls, the monsoon season, and the Karnataka elections could influence the timing of the Yatra, possibly before June or November creating a shorter duration than its north-south predecessor.
