In a strategic move ahead of the upcoming Lok Sabha elections, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi is set to embark on a political journey with the launch of the 'Bharat Nyay Yatra', as reported by NDTV.

Spanning an extensive distance of 6,200 km, the yatra is slated to commence on 14 January, traversing 14 states and covering 85 districts, including Manipur, Nagaland, Assam, West Bengal, Bihar, Gujarat, Maharashtra, and more.

This ambitious yatra follows the blueprint of last year's 'Bharat Jodo Yatra', a five-month-long foot march that garnered widespread support from Congress workers and opposition leaders.

Scheduled to conclude on 20 March, the 'Bharat Nyay Yatra' is designed to maximise direct engagement with the public, incorporating stretches of bus rides and foot marches.

While Congress leaders view this initiative as a crucial element in their electoral strategy, Bharatiya Janata Party remains sceptical, asserting that past similar efforts have already been rejected by the people.
