New Delhi: The ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ reached Madhya Pradesh on November 20 while, the ‘padyatra’ started on November 23 after taking two days of rest. On Monday, the foot march started from Indore district on its 6th day in the state.
So far, the yatra passed through the suburban area of Rau and reached Indore. A red carpet was rolled out to welcome when the march reached Rau, as reported by news agency PTI.
A day earlier, Gandhi during the yatra also drew a motorcycle. In a video that has gone viral, Rahul can be seen riding a bike with a helmet strapped to his head while security personnel cleared the path.
Indore Commissioner of Police HC Mishra said 1,400 personnel have been deployed in the city to provide security to the yatra and barricades have been put up at various places.
The Bharat Jodo Yatra, which began on September 7 in Kanyakumari, entered Madhya Pradesh on November 23. It will pass through 12 states, culminating in Jammu and Kashmir – spanning a distance of nearly 3,500 Km over the course of about 150 days.
Wayanad MP Rahul Gandhi had started the ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ on September 7 which aimed to revive the grand-old party across the nation.
2020 Political Drama in Madhya Pradesh
Reffering to a politcal brawl in Madhya Pradesh in 2020, Gandhi said the saffron party bought 20- 25 corrupt leaders to make their government in the state.
In March 2020, Congress leader Kamal Nath announced his resignation few hours ahead of the crucial floor test in the Assembly, ending his term of 15 months as the Chief Minister of the state.
The floor test became mandatory after 20 MLAs of the grand-old party resigned after a two-weeks of drama.
