Rahul Gandhi is likely to be joined by family members of freedom fighters, prominent Congress officials, and actor-turned-politician Kamal Hassan on Saturday in Delhi as part of his ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’.
“Senior Congress leaders and parliamentarians, families of freedom fighters, and Makkal Needhi Maiam (MKM) president Kamal Hassan are likely to join the Bharat Jodo Yatra in the national capital,” party sources.
Speaking to the MKM office holders last week, Hassan announced that Rahul Gandhi had called him and that he would take part in the Bharat Jodo Yatra on December 24 in the capital.
Anil Chaudhary, the head of the Delhi Congress, predicted that between 40,000 and 50,000 yatris will take part in the yatra in the nation’s capital. “People from different fields will be joining the yatra that will enter the Badarpur border at 6 am. We will then walk towards Ashram via Apollo hospital and thereafter, the yatris will have a lunch break and will rest for a while. We will resume our yatra at 1 pm from Ashram,” Chaudhary said.
RaGa and some of the yatris would then travel by vehicle to Rajghat, Veerbhumi, and Shantivan to offer flower tributes. The yatra will resume on January 3 from Uttar Pradesh after a little rest on Saturday night. The second section of the journey would then take participants to Haryana once more, Punjab, and Jammu & Kashmir.
Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Karnataka, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, and Rajasthan have all been covered by the yatra, which began on September 7 in Kanyakumari. On December 16, the 100-day mark was reached.
