The Bharat Jodo Yatra led by Rahul Gandhi, which is scheduled to enter the politically vital state in the first week of January, may not include top opposition figures from Uttar Pradesh.
Mayawati, Akhilesh Yadav, and Jayant Chaudhary, the head of the Rashtriya Lok Dal, were all asked by the Congress to participate in the party’s massive march from Kanyakumari in Tamil Nadu to Srinagar in Jammu and Kashmir.
Dinesh Sharma, an activist for education and a former professor at Lucknow University, has been invited to the yatra while other non-BJP opposition politicians have been asked to participate. However, political analysts see the Congress’ action as an effort to bring together the non-BJP parties through the Yatra before the significant election due in 2024. With only one MP from Congress president Sonia Gandhi representing Rae Bareli in the Lok Sabha and two MLAs in the state legislature, Congress has been reduced to almost nothing in the nation’s politically most important state. Congress is currently working extremely hard to revive itself in UP.
Along with Sharma, the Congress party has also invited Professor Ravikant, who teaches Hindi at LU, to participate in the yatra, which is anticipated to enter UP on January 3 from the Loni border of Ghaziabad. Before entering Haryana, the Yatra, which is being led by former Congress President Rahul Gandhi, will pass through the districts of Ghaziabad, Baghpat, and Shamli.
Along with Ghaziabad, Rahul Gandhi would also lead the yatra in Baghpat and Shamli on January 4 and 5, respectively, when he left Uttar Pradesh in the evening and entered Sonipat in Haryana via Kairana in the Shamli district. During the yatra, Rahul Gandhi would travel a total of 100 kilometres through UP.
Ashok Singh, a spokesman for the UP Congress, claims that the Bharat Jodo Yatra is the only way to understand people’s thoughts because they aren’t permitted to express their opinions under the current government.
