'Bharat Jodo Yatra': Congress to launch a nation-wide foot march today

While Rahul Gandhi will attend the launch and flag off the yatra, Congress President Sonia Gandhi and party leader Priyanka Gandhi will not be part of the event as they are abroad. 

Bharat Jodo Yatra : The Congress will launch a nationwide foot march covering 3,570-km from Kanyakumari on Wednesday.

The party has tagged the 'Bharat Jodo Yatra' as a 'transformational moment' for Indian politics and a 'decisive moment' for the party's rejuvenation.

The Congress is seeking to flag economic disparities, social polarisation and political centralisation, while attempting to make gains in what it often described as battle of ideologies.

Before the launch, former Congress president Rahul Gandhi will take part in a prayer meeting at Rajiv Gandhi memorial in Sriperumbudur on Wednesday. He will then attend an event in Kanyakumari where Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M K Stalin, Rajasthan's Ashok Gehlot and Chhattisgarh's Bhupesh Baghel will be present.

Stalin will present a national flag made of khadi to Gandhi who will hand it over to Seva Dal workers who will manage the Yatra throughout.

After the event at the Mahatma Gandhi Mandapam where Stalin will be present, Rahul Gandhi and other Congress leaders will walk to the seaside venue of the rally where the yatra will be formally launched.
