Bharat Jodo Yatra In Delhi: Sonia, Priyanka Also Join

New Delhi: Thousands of people joined the Bharat Jodo Yatra on Saturday as Rahul Gandhi marched through Delhi even as Health Minister has given a call to follow Covid protocols.

Former Congress President Sonia Gandhi and party general secretary Priyanka Gandhi also joined the Yatra. This is the second time Sonia Gandhi has joined the yatra. In October, she had taken part in the Congress' mega foot march in Karnataka.

Several party leaders, including Jairam Ramesh, Pawan Khera, Bhupinder Singh Hooda, Kumari Selja and Randeep Surjewala marched with Rahul.

Traffic diverted at many places

A large crowd of Congress workers joined yatrat. Because of this, Delhi Police has diverted traffic at more than two dozen places. There is a possibility of heavy traffic from Badarpur border to Red Fort. According to the Delhi Congress, the yatra will cover a distance of 23 km and end at the Red Fort at 4.30 pm on Saturday. After this there will be a break of 9 days in the yatra.

As the Bharat Jodo Yatra entered the national capital from Faridabad early this morning, Delhi Congress Chief Anil Chaudhary welcomed Gandhi, other party leaders and the yatris at Badarpur Border amid "Rahul Zindabad" chants.

Aim is to open a shop of love in bazar of hatred

While addressing party workers and leaders, Rahul Gandhi reiterated that the motive of his yatra is to open a 'mohabbat ki dukaan' (shop of love) amid a 'nafrat ka bazaar' (market of hatred).

"Common man of the country is now talking about love. In every state, lakhs have joined the yatra. I have told people of RSS and BJP that we are here to open shop of love in your 'bazar' of hatred," Gandhi said.

Gandhi said the purpose of the Yatra is to showcase "real Hindustan" where people help each other. "They (BJP, RSS) spread hatred, we (Congress) spread love," he said.

Bharat Jodo Yatra will be on rest for 9 days from Saturday night. On January 3, there will be an entry of Yatra in Uttar Pradesh from Ghaziabad's Loni border.
