Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, accompanied by his sister and party general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, concluded his 63-day Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra with a poignant homage to Dr B R Ambedkar at Chaityabhoomi in central Mumbai. Standing at the memorial of the architect of the Indian Constitution, Gandhi recited the Preamble, reaffirming the Congress’ commitment to the principles enshrined within it. The yatra, which commenced on January 14 from Thoubal, Manipur, aimed to traverse the length and breadth of the country, shedding light on pressing issues such as unemployment, social justice, and inflation.

The Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra, which was slated to culminate on March 20, concluded four days earlier on March 16, coinciding with the announcement of the Lok Sabha elections scheduled by the Election Commission. During its extensive journey, the yatra covered 100 Lok Sabha constituencies across 15 states, resonating with citizens from diverse backgrounds.

In Manipur, where the journey commenced, Rahul Gandhi pledged to address the ethnic violence plaguing the state, condemning the apathy of the Modi government towards the region’s plight. Subsequently, the yatra traversed Nagaland, where Gandhi engaged with tribal organizations and civil society groups, advocating for inclusivity and dialogue.

However, the yatra encountered hurdles in Assam, with Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma denying permission for the yatra to proceed through Guwahati. The ensuing standoff led to clashes between Congress workers and law enforcement, resulting in injuries and property damage. Despite the challenges, the yatra persevered, making its way through Arunachal Pradesh, Meghalaya, and West Bengal.

In West Bengal, the yatra faced logistical challenges amid the backdrop of strained relations between the Congress and the ruling Trinamool Congress. Despite Mamata Banerjee’s announcement of solo campaigning, the yatra continued its journey through the state, highlighting grassroots issues affecting the populace.

The yatra also traversed significant territories in Madhya Pradesh and Gujarat, where it encountered both support and dissent. Former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kamal Nath’s participation in the yatra added political significance to its trajectory, while resignations from the Congress in Gujarat underscored internal rifts within the party.

Looking ahead, Rahul Gandhi is set to embark on a ‘Nyay Sankalp Padyatra’ from Mani Bhavan to August Kranti Maidan in Mumbai, joined by prominent opposition leaders from the I.N.D.I.A. bloc. Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin, RJD leader Tejashwi Yadav, and SP chief Akhilesh Yadav are among the leaders slated to participate, showcasing a unified front against prevailing political challenges.
