Raipur: Rahul Gandhi on Sunday said that the party president should make another program like Bharat Jodo Yatra. He and the workers are all set to do ‘tapasya’. He said this while addressing the 85th plenary session of Congress in Raipur. Rahul Gandhi said the party is now considering a yatra from Pasighat in Arunachal Pradesh to Porbandar in Gujarat, the birthplace of Mahatma Gandhi.
Yatra may happen around Loksabha elections
Party General Secretary Jairam Ramesh said that now another visit is being considered. He said the yatra would have to be planned and it could coincide with the general elections. Addressing the 85th Congress Convention in Raipur, Chhattisgarh, Rahul Gandhi said that the Bharat Jodo Yatra invoked the true spirit of patriotism. This has not been done by him alone but by Congress workers. Rahul Gandhi said, you saw that we did ‘tapasya’ for four months and how much energy came in the party workers, ‘tapasya’ should not stop.
Jammu and Kashmir is like my home – Rahul Gandhi
He further said, we have inculcated love for the tricolor among the youth of Kashmir through the Bharat Jodo Yatra. BJP had snatched it. Rahul Gandhi said, 52 years have passed, and I still don’t have a home, but when I reached Kashmir, it felt like home. The yatra was meant to make people of all castes and age groups feel at home.
