In a bid to build on the success of the first leg of the Bharat Jodo Yatra, the Congress party is gearing up for a second edition, expected to kick off in the first week of January 2024. This remarkable initiative, aimed at fostering unity among party workers and engaging with citizens across the nation, will serve as the launchpad for the Congress party’s Lok Sabha campaign.
Sources reveal that the upcoming Bharat Jodo Yatra 2.0 is set to embrace a hybrid approach, combining traditional pad yatras with modern travel by bus. The meticulously planned route will traverse through numerous cities and villages in the west and north of India, starting from the northeast region and spanning over two months.
Recalling the first Bharat Jodo Yatra that commenced on September 7 last year and concluded on January 30 in Srinagar, Rahul Gandhi led the way, addressing public meetings and engaging with various societal groups. The resounding success of the initial yatra serves as a testament to the power of such grassroots initiatives in reinvigorating political participation and fostering a sense of collective purpose.
