Congress’ ongoing mass movement ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ led by Rahul Gandhi entered Haryana on Wednesday and it resumed from Patan Udaipur village in Nuh district. People in large numbers were seen joining the march holding banners and party flags.
The Yatra will take a break in Ferozepur Jhirka at 10:30 and will move to Bhadas Nagina, the party officials said.
Addressing the gatherings here, Rahul Gandhi took a swipe at the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party and other parties and said that the leaders of these parties do not listen to the public.
“Nowadays, there is a gap between the leaders of BJP, Samajwadi Party, and the public. Leaders think that there is no need to listen to the public and give speeches for hours. We have tried to change this in this journey,” Gandhi said before starting the yatra from Nuh.
The foot march observed its last in the Congress-ruled state on Tuesday. Rajasthan was the only Congress-ruled state where the yatra covered around 500 km over 17 days before entering Haryana. Bharat Jodo Yatra will reach the National capital on December 24.
Congress MP and party General Secretary (Communications) Jairam Ramesh on Monday tweeted the complete schedule of the BJY’s Delhi leg. It will start from Delhi’s Babarpur Metro station on December 24 at 6 am and will reach Ashram Chowk at 10.30 am.

The Bharat Jodo Yatra, which began on September 7 from Kanyakumari, will cover 3,570 km by next year. It is the longest march on foot by any Indian politician in the history of India, the Congress has claimed. Rahul Gandhi aims to mobilize the party cadre and unite the general public against the alleged “divisive politics in the country”.
So far, the Bharat Jodo Yatra has covered parts of Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Madhya Pradesh, and Maharashtra, and has now entered Rajasthan. It will end in Kashmir next year.
