The Bharat Jodo Yatra led by Congress MP Rahul Gandhi entered Madhya Pradesh on Wednesday.
A large number of Congressmen carrying the tricolour in their hands reached Bodarli village as the foot procession crossed over from Maharashtra into Madhya Pradesh.
Maharashtra Congress president Nana Patole handed over the tricolour to Madhya Pradesh party chief Kamal Nath to formally launch the 12-day-long yatra in the central state, where it will cover a distance of 380 km before entering Rajasthan.
Speaking on the occasion, Rahul Gandhi said, “This yatra is against hatred, violence and fear being spread in the country. We have started the Bharat Jodo Yatra by taking the tricolour in our hands from Kanyakumari. Nobody can stop this tricolour from reaching Srinagar.”
As the Gandhi scion and hundreds of Congress workers resumed the march after a two-day break, they were joined by senior leaders Kamal Nath and Digvijaya Singh.
