As India approaches the upcoming general election, Rahul Gandhi, a key figure in the opposition Congress party, has embarked on a lengthy march covering 6,700km across the country. This journey follows his previous 4,000km “unity march” from Kanyakumari to Srinagar last year.
This time, he plans to travel from east to west, using a combination of bus and foot, covering 100 parliamentary constituencies in 110 districts across 15 states, including crucial electoral regions. The march will conclude in Mumbai after 66 days.
The Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra (United India Justice March) began in Imphal, the capital of Manipur, where ethnic clashes have caused significant turmoil over the past eight months. Despite the violence and displacement, thousands cheered as Rahul Gandhi and other Congress leaders addressed the crowd amid tight security.
Acknowledging the challenges faced by the people of Manipur, Rahul Gandhi pledged to address their pain and promised to restore what they valued. This march takes place amidst the opposition’s efforts to counter the popularity of Prime Minister Narendra Modi and prevent his third consecutive victory.
