Bharat Jodo Yatra: Rahul Gandhi reaches Indore; rides bike | Watch

New Delhi: Congress’s ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ led by former party president Rahul Gandhi reached Indore on Sunday on the fifth day of its Madhya Pradesh leg.

After a night halt at Mhow, the birthplace of Dr BR Ambedkar, the yatra participants resumed the march on Sunday morning.

People from different sections of society including a differently-abled man, Manohar, also joined the foot march and Gandhi was seen pushing his wheelchair to some distance.

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.

Taking many into surprise, 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.

Twelve dilapidated houses in the densely populated Rajwada area with narrow streets have been temporarily evacuated to avoid the possibility of any untoward incident during the march, he said.

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.
