Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has renamed his upcoming journey, changing it from ‘Bharat Nyay Yatra’ to ‘Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra’. The journey is set to commence on January 14 in Imphal, the capital of Manipur and will embark the journey from Amguri to Dhubri from January 18th to 25th in Assam.

Senior Congress leader Jairam Rameshsaid that the significant decision to alter the name of the election journey was made during a crucial meeting in New Delhi, chaired by the Congress Committee President Mallikarjun Kharge and conducted under the leadership of Nikhil Bharat Congress Committee.

In today’s meeting, the AICC General secretary, eminent observers, Pradesh Congress Committee’s President, and leaders of the party’s executive committee were present. During the discussions, everyone expressed their opinions, emphasizing that the name ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ has gained widespread acceptance among the people and should not be altered like a ‘Breguet’, and thus they decided to rename the new journey as ‘Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra’.

In 2022, on September 7, Gandhi initiated the ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ from South India to North India. Spanning 136 days from Kanyakumari in Tamil Nadu to Srinagar in Kashmir, the journey covered 12 states, 2 Union Territories, and engaged with 75 districts and covered about 4080 kms. 

The new edition of the ‘Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra’ will traverse from the North-East region to the Western side, culminating in Mumbai on March 20.The purpose of Rahul Gandhi’s journey is to establish connectivity between East and West India.


Spanning 66 days, 15 states, 110 districts and approximately 6,700 kms, 100 Lok Sabha Constituencies and 337 Vidhan Sabha Constituencies, this journey will traverse Manipur, Nagaland, Assam, Meghalaya, Arunachal Pradesh, West Bengal, Bihar, Jharkhand, Odisha, Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, Chhattisgarh, Rajasthan, Gujarat, and Maharashtra.

Senior leader Jairam Ramesh mentioned that although initially it was planned to commence the journey from Arunachal Pradesh, later the starting point was chosen through consensus in Manipur due to logistical considerations and to address group conflicts in sensitive regions.
