In Maharashtra, Congressman Rahul Gandhi will speak at two rallies as part of the “Bharat Jodo Yatra” during his 14-day visit beginning on November 7.
He will travel over 370 km during the yatra, which started in Kanyakumari last month and will enter Maharashtra’s Deglur from Telangana on Monday (November 7) evening.
He will travel from Nanded district’s Deglur in Maharashtra via Hingoli, Washim, and Akola to Buldhana district’s Jalgaon-Jamod in Vidarbha.
A magnificent welcome for Gandhi has been organised by all Congress leaders and elected officials who would be present at the rally, with 44 party MLAs assigned to various tasks at various sites for the same.
On November 10 and 11, Gandhi will speak to a crowd in Nanded and Shegaon, respectively. Besides these rallies, there will be a number of corner meetings.
According to Nana Patole, president of the Maharashtra Congress, “both rallies would draw crowds that are unheard of. Over 10 lakh people are anticipated to attend the Shegaon demonstration.
Uddhav Thackeray, the leader of the Shiv Sena, and Sharad Pawar, the leader of the Nationalist Congress Party (NCP), have both been invited to participate in the yatra by Congress, which has been eager to bring together opposition groups.
Both major figures have accepted the offer, and according to Congress leaders, Pawar will likely accompany Gandhi on the yatra on November 8th. However, Sena has not yet officially said if Uddhav or Aaditya Thackeray will support Gandhi.
Gandhi is expected to connect with villagers, various rights’ groups, people from various fields, and attend cultural events hosted by various groups at various locations along the yatra.
A number of non-political organisations will also take part in the yatra. “We are a group of about 130 young people united by a strong commitment to democratic and constitutional values; many of us are not even employees of Congress.
To promote the yatra’s message, we will walk through these locations, said Ashutosh Shirke, a member of the Mahanirdhar Group, a group of young people from various regions of the state. The yatra will also include a number of members of organisations like “Friends of Democracy,” “Youth for Democracy,” “Mulbhut Adhikar Sangharsh Samiti,” and “Sane Guruji Rashtriya Smarak.”
