New Delhi: Former Congress president Rahul Gandhi started the third day of the ‘Bharata Jodo Yatra’ from Tamil Nadu’s Nagercoil on Friday.
Before starting off, Rahul Gandhi hoisted the national flag at the Scott Christian College.
The Congress MP also interacted with the farmers who had staged a demonstration at Delhi’s Jantar Mantar.
During the protest in Delhi, the demonstrators had displayed human skulls to symbolise the death of those farmers who died by suicide as they could not get proper financial backing from government.

The Bharat Jodo Yatra was started from Kanyakumari in Tamil Nadu on Wednesday (September 7). The ‘padyatra’ will end in Kashmir after crossing several states.
The rally aims to revive the electoral fortunes of the ‘grand old party’.
