Congress leader Rahul Gandhi will embark on a 65-day Bharat Nyay Yatra from Manipur’s capital Imphal on January 14. The yatra will cover 14 states and 85 districts, ending in Mumbai on March 20. Gandhi will use the yatra to interact with people from all walks of life and hear their concerns.
Before the Lok Sabha elections, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi will embark on the ‘Manipur to Mumbai’ Bharat Nyay Yatra on January 14. The 6,200-kilometer journey across 14 states and 85 districts, including Assam, West Bengal, Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, and Gujarat, would conclude in Mumbai on March 20, 2024.
The statement was made during a news conference by Congress General Secretary KC Venugopal and Jairam Ramesh.
In a news conference, Venugopal said, “This Yatra will cover a distance of 6,200 km.” It traverses through Manipur, Nagaland, Assam, Meghalaya, West Bengal, Bihar, Jharkhand, Odisha, Chhattisgarh, UP, MP, Rajasthan, Gujarat, and ultimately Maharashtra. “The bus is the mode of transportation for the yatra.”
The yatra is seen as an attempt by the Congress to revive its fortunes in the run-up to the 2024 general elections. Gandhi has been criticized for his lack of visibility in recent months, and the yatra is seen as a way for him to connect with voters across the country.

The yatra is also likely to be seen as a challenge to the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP). The BJP has been in power at the center for eight years, but it has faced increasing criticism for its handling of the economy and other issues. The yatra could give the Congress an opportunity to highlight the BJP’s failures and appeal to voters who are looking for a change.
Gandhi has said that the yatra is about “seeking justice for all Indians.” He has promised to raise issues such as economic inequality, unemployment, and social injustice. The yatra is also likely to focus on the BJP’s alleged corruption and mismanagement.
The yatra is likely to be closely watched by political observers. It could have a significant impact on the 2024 general elections.
