In a tweet, Congress general secretary Jairam Ramesh wrote, “Day 55 of Bharat Jodo Yatra is special. Rahul Gandhi will hoist the national flag from Charminar where on 19.10.1990, Rajiv Gandhi started Sadbhavna Yatra.”

“Every year on that day, @INCIndia has since raised the national flag here. INC President @kharge will join us today evening,” he said.

Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge will walk with Gandhi in the ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ in Hyderabad later in the day, the first time he will do so after taking on the party mantle.

Kharge will reach Hyderabad in the afternoon and join Gandhi in the evening leg of the Yatra.

Bharat Jodo Yatra

On October 23, the Bharat Jodo Yatra entered Telangana from Karnataka. Following a three-day break for Diwali and the swearing-in of new Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge, it resumed on October 26.

The Yatra will continue in Telangana till November 7 with one-day break on November 4.

It will cover 19 Assembly and 7 Parliamentary constituencies spanning a total distance of 375 km in the state, before entering Maharashtra on November 7.

The Bharat Jodo Yatra began on September 7 from Kanyakumari in Tamil Nadu. Gandhi completed the marathon walk in Kerala, Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka before beginning the Telangana leg of the yatra.

It is being seen as a Congress’ “masterstroke” to take on the Narendra Modi government in the upcoming 2024 elections.
