New Delhi: Senior Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has resumed ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ from Kherda village in Khargone district of Madhya Pradesh on Friday. Today marks the 79th day of the ‘yatra’ which started from Kanya Kumari in Tamil Nadu on September 7.
Gandhi is accompanied by a number of supporters as well as former Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh Digvijay Singh, Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi and her son Raihan Vadra.
Earlier, Rahul Gandhi said they resorted to the ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ as all the democratic ways to raise voice were closed. Gandhi made the statement in his public address during the foot march in Madhya Pradesh’s Burhanpur.

He held the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) responsible behind it, adding that the two has sabotaged indpendent institutions to misuse them.
