Everything you need to know about the Bharat Jodo Yatra

Bharat Jodo Yatra is a movement to march against the neglect of people’s aspirations by the government. The socio-cultural fabric of India has been torn apart by divisive forces. Our economy is collapsing. Price rise and unemployment have turned people’s hope into despair. Political centralization of power has decimated our Democracy.
Bharat Jodo Yatra is a movement to unite the voices of the people of India, against injustice. It was the Congress party that led the battle against the Britishers, and it will be the Congress that will unite the country again in this fight against the politics of hate and bigotry.
The Yatra will start from Kanyakumari and culminate in Kashmir. Check out the Yatra Route Map to find the nearest city from where you can join.

Does continuous price rise and the unemployment crisis affect you and your family? If you are disturbed by the current state of the country, India needs you to stand up and be counted. The country is doing abysmally in all parameters – unemployment, inflation, violence against minorities and women. The policy interventions of the central government are focused only on maximizing profits of their capitalist friends and multiplying their resources. It has aggravated the misery of our socio-economically marginalized communities.
We are marching to give utterance to the long-subdued voices of farmers, daily wage earners, Dalits, women, children and youth. We are marching for justice, peace and equality.

While a majority of the 3,570 km will be covered on foot, there are some portions that will require a vehicle, because:

  1. The yatra will pass through forests & wildlife reserves and large groups of people cannot walk through these protected areas
  2. The night halt locations require 2 acres of land for food, accommodation & security for 250 yatris & support teams. These sites are not always available on the 20-25 km walking route
