Chamarajanagara: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Saturday October 1 resumed the Bharat Jodo Yatra (BJY) from Tondavadi Gate in Gundlupet in the District.

October 1 marked the yatra’s 24th day, which began at 6.30 am and will reach its first break point at Kalale Gate near Servo Motors. After resuming from Kalale Gate at 4.30 pm, the Congress leader will walk to Chikkayana Chatra Thandavapura in Mysuru District by 7.00 pm. The Yatra will pass through Mysuru City on October 3.

Senior Congress leader and former Chief Minister Siddaramaiah, Karnataka Congress Chief D. K. Shivakumar, Congress leaders Randeep Singh Surjewala, M. B. Patil, R. Dhruvanarayan, Priyank Kharge, MLAs Anil Chikkamadu and Dr. Yathindra Siddaramaiah and other party leaders were present.

The participants of the 3,500-km march from Kanyakumari to Kashmir will stay opposite the Maharaja Institute of Technology (MIT) in Thandavapura in Mysuru District at night.

The march was aimed to cover as many as 12 States in five months. It recently reached Karnataka on Friday September 30 and will be here for the next 21 days before moving north. The padayatra (march) will cover a distance of 25 km every day.

Uppittu-saffron bath breakfast was arranged for over 10,000 people at various places including JSS Kala Mandir, Someshwara Student Hostel, and Kanaka Bhavan in the town who arrived early in the morning for the padayatra. Later in the afternoon, rice-sambar, Pulau, and lunch were arranged for 30,000 people near Kebbekatta Shaneshwar Temple in the outer zone of the town.

Due to the Bharat Jodo Yatra, vehicular traffic between the City and Mysuru, Ooty, Kerala and Chamarajanagara was disrupted. Although the District Administration has arranged an alternate route, people, especially students, have suffered. The police stopped the vehicles going from Chamarajanagara to Terkanambi.

After the march proceeded, there was a traffic jam on the Town Highway for some time. This caused the passengers to struggle. School children going to Gundlupet through National Highway 68 in the morning felt annoyed. As all vehicles were not allowed inside the Town and students had to walk for kilometres to reach schools.
