'The yatra will continue tirelessly': Rahul Gandhi's Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra in Nagaland (See In Pics)

‘Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra’ led by Congress leader Rahul Gandhi reached Nagaland on Monday evening. Rahul Gandhi along with his party colleagues reached Khujama village in Kohima district bordering Manipur. 

Rahul wrote on his Facebook page: Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra's goal is definite and unwavering! After passing through Manipur, the yatra has now entered Nagaland – this yatra will continue tirelessly. The lamp of hope has to be lit.

This yatra was flagged off by Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge on Sunday in Thoubal, Manipur. People welcomed Rahul Gandhi and his team in Khujama. Rahul will rest for the night in the village itself.

Congress's Nagaland unit working president Khredi Thenuo said that during his stay, Rahul Gandhi will hold closed-door meetings with Naga tribal organisations, including Naga Hoho, civic bodies and church bodies on their issues and problems. 

Thenuo said the Rahul Gandhi-led yatra will enter Assam on January 18 and before that it will pass through five districts of Nagaland, Kohima, Tseminyu, Wokha, Zunheboto and Mokokchung.

While sharing the video on 'X', Congress leader Rahul Gandhi wrote, "Today Manipur is looking towards the entire country with hopeful eyes. We have to erase the pain in their eyes and light the lamp of hope. Our journey is a balm of unity and love on the soul of India wounded by BJP’s politics of division and neglect.”

On Tuesday, Rahul Gandhi will start his yatra in Nagaland from Viswema village and on reaching Kohima, he will lay wreath at the World War II cemetery. Before going to other districts he will also address a public meeting at High School Junction.

Congress's 'Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra' will pass through 100 Lok Sabha constituencies of 15 states. During this period, a total distance of 6,713 kilometers will be covered by bus and foot and it will conclude in Mumbai on 20th or 21st March.
