Ahmedabad, February 29: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi's "Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra" is set to make its presence felt in Gujarat from March 7, spanning a four-day campaign, a party source said on Thursday, adding preparations are currently underway. A preparatory meeting in Dahod saw the presence of several Congress leaders, including Gujarat in-charge Mukul Wasnik, state unit president Shaktisinh Gohil, and others.

Scheduled to commence its Gujarat leg at Jhalod on March 7, the yatra would start its march near the Dahod bus stand the next day. Gujarat Congress spokesperson Manish Doshi said: "The 'Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra' is not just a political rally but a clarion call for justice, aiming to shed light on the grievances of tribal communities, farmers, small traders, job-seeking youths, and government employees among others. Uttar Pradesh: Congress Leader Rahul Gandhi Greeted With Black Flags During Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra in Rae Bareli, Video Surfaces.
