Congress Bharat Jodo Yatra led by former party president Rahul Gandhi entered Madhya Pradesh on Wednesday.

The yatra today resumed after a two-day break from Boderli village in the Burhanpur district of Madhya Pradesh. During the break from Bharat Jodo Yatra, Rahul Gandhi addressed two election rallies in poll-bound Gujarat.

A large number of Congress leaders and workers including Madhya Pradesh Congress president Kamal Nath participated in the yatra on the first day in Madhya Pradesh.

Maharashtra Congress chief Nana Patole handed over the yatra flag to Kamal Nath.

Today is the 77th day of the Congress foot march.

Congress General Secretary Incharge of Communication Jairam Ramesh said that the yatra will go through seven districts of the state over the next 11 days.

“Today is the 77th day of Bharat Jodo Yatra as it resumes from near Burhanpur in southwestern MP. Burhanpur has a long history and became an important place during the Mughal rule, especially during Shah Jahan’s reign. The Yatra will go through 7 districts of MP over the next 11 days,” the Congress leader said in a tweet.

“One-sixth of Burhanpur district’s cultivated area is covered with bananas and it’s also one of the centres of the power loom industry. Rahul Gandhi will be interacting with banana growers and power loom workers today afternoon,” said Ramesh.

The yatra will cover a distance of 370 km before entering Rajasthan.

Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra will also be joining the Bharat Jodo Yatra today in Madhya Pradesh where it reaches its halfway mark. It will be the first time that the brother-sister duo will walk together in the yatra.
