Hyderabad: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi’s Bharat Jodo Yatra continued in Telangana on Sunday. It will enter Maharashtra on Monday.
On the 60th day of his walkathon, the Congress MP started walking at Alladurg in Medak district on Sunday morning.
During the padyatra, Rahul interacted with people from various walks of life. He waved at the people standing on either side of the road and entertained the requests of some youngsters for selfies with him.
Rahul Gandhi had started Bharat Jodo Yatra on September 7 from Kanyakumari to unite people and ‘stand up to the hatred and violence being spread by the BJP and RSS.’ The walkathon will cover 3,750 km and pass through 12 states before concluding in Srinagar.
The yatra already covered Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh. The yatra entered Telangana from Karnataka on October 23. It had a four-day break during its journey through the state.
During his journey in Telangana, Rahul Gandhi attacked both the BJP government at the Centre and the TRS government in the state.
Addressing a public meeting at Peddapur on Saturday, he said that neither Chief Minister K. Chandrasekhar Rao nor agriculture minister N. Niranjan Reddy had the slightest understanding of the problems being faced by the farmers in the state.
He alleged that the chief minister was grabbing the land of farmers in the name of Dharani portal.
The Congress leader said that the condition of farmers, workers, students and employees is not good not only in Telangana but across the country. After 2014, unemployment and poverty have increased manifold. While the country is going through such a gloomy period, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Chief Minister Chandrasekhar Rao are working for their own self-interests, he said.
