The Congress unveiled a logo, tagline, pamphlet and website for the yatra. The tagline or slogan for the nationwide foot march is “mile kadam, jude vatan” (walk together, unite the country).
The 3,570-km yatra from Kanyakumari to Srinagar is set to be formally launched by Rahul Gandhi on September 7. The rally will cover 12 states and two Union Territories in 150 days.
The ‘padayatra’ will move in two batches, one from 7-10:30 am and the other from 3:30 pm to 6:30 pm. While the morning session will include a lesser number of participants, the evening session will see mass mobilisation. On an average, the padyatris will walk around 22-23 km daily, Congress leader Jairam Ramesh said.
He said simultaneously with the main yatra, there will be separate small Bharat Jodo Yatras’ in states such as Assam, Tripura, Bihar, Odisha, Sikkim, West Bengal and Nagaland.
