The September-launched Bharat Jodo Yatra attempts to rekindle the Congress’s connection with the general public.

The media, according to Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot, “boycotted” the Bharat Jodo Yatra on Monday, a day after Raul Gandhi, who has been heading the Congress’s Kanyakumari to Kashmir foot march, arrived in the state. He further intensified his criticism of the BJP by declaring that the party, which is currently in power at the federal level, “is very anxious” about the grand old party’s initiative to strengthen its ties to the general public.
People are currently supporting the Yatra, and social media is doing the same. But mainstream media continues to boycott it,” the chief minister of Rajasthan stated, intensifying his criticism. “These are our pals sitting here. But it’s not your fault. You send the information and specifics. However, I have a question for those who are seeking to stop the coverage. Will you refuse to air such a lengthy programme? The fourth pillar of the state is the media. This is based solely on Rahul Gandhi’s encouraging words. You won’t be pardoned by India.
He said, “Is it not our duty?” while applauding Rahul Gandhi for saying that he “is walking the path of truth.” Additionally, he brought up the activist Medha Patkar’s involvement in the foot march preceding the Gujarat elections, which had drawn criticism from Prime Minister Narendra Modi.
On Sunday evening, the Bharat Jodo Yatra arrived in Gujarat after travelling more than 2,500 kilometres through seven states. According to Jairam Ramesh of the Congress, the remaining distance of the foot march—approximately 1,200 km—will be covered during the next weeks.
Following the Bharat Jodo Yatra, the party intends to conduct a “Hath se Hath Jodo” foot march beginning on January 26 under Gandhi’s direction. The party has emphasised that it will strengthen connections with young people.
Rahul Gandhi is currently in Rajasthan, weeks after Gehlot referred to Sachin Pilot as a “gaddar (traitor)” in an interview with NDTV, sparking a new crisis inside the party. However, it appears that the party’s disputes have been resolved, as both Gehlot and Pilot welcomed Gandhi on Sunday.
