Bharat Jodo Yatra, a unique movement in post independent India.Rahul Gandhi started a padayatra (foot march) called 'Bharat Jodo Yatra' on 07-09-2022 from Kanyakumari in Tamil Nadu. This padayatra is from Kanyakumari to Kashmir and covers a distance of more than 3500 Km. It passes through 12 States and 2 Union Territories. It will take 150 days to complete the yatra. The slogan of the yatra is 'Mile Kadam, Jude Vatan' (Come together, unite the nation). The yatra completed 41 days and covered a little more than 1000 Km.
Rahul Gandhi says that the Bharat Jodo Yatra is a movement to unite the voices of the people of India against injustice. He says the hate and fear atmosphere being created in the country in the name of religion, using Government Institutions to muffle any sort of opposition and criticism may divide the nation and the people's voice is silenced. Rahul Gandhi is addressing the people in some places. He is questioning the Governments failure to contain inflation, rising prices of commodities, problems faced by the farmers and small business people, and also the high unemployment rate in the country.
The response to the yatra was very good in the three States of Tamil Nadu, Kerala, and Karnataka. Today is the rest day and the yatra resumes in Andhra Pradesh tomorrow. The yatra is televised live by the Congress and many other T.V. channels. The visuals show that there is a very good impact on the people.
