MORADABAD (Uttar Pradesh): More than a month after the Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra started, Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra on Saturday joined party MP and her brother Rahul Gandhi’s Yatra in Uttar Pradesh’s Moradabad.

According to party functionaries, from Moradabad, Priyanka Gandhi will accompany Rahul Gandhi as the yatra traverses through Fatehpur Sikri via Amroha, Sambhal, Bulandshahr, Aligarh, Hathras and Agra.

Priyanka was scheduled to join the yatra last week when it entered UP through Chandauli district, but had to drop out because of ill health. The Congress general secretary had earlier expressed her disappointment over not being able to participate in the Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra on February 16 due to her illness.

“I was really looking forward to receiving the BJNY in UP today, but unfortunately, have ended up admitted to hospital. I will be there as soon as I am better! Meanwhile wishing all the yatris, my colleagues in UP who have worked hard towards making arrangements for the yatra and my sweet brother, all success as they reach Chandauli today”, Priyanka Gandhi had posted on X.

Former Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh and Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav is poised to join forces with Rahul Gandhi’s much-publicised Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra as it makes its way to Agra on February 25 after the seat deal with the Congress party. Samajwadi Party workers, including party MP from Moradabad, S T Hassan, have supported the Congress yatra.

Samajwadi Party (SP) MP, ST Hasan said, “…Yes, we too will walk with them (Congress) till the territory of Moradabad. He (Akhilesh Yadav) will join tomorrow or maybe in Agra the day after”. Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge personally invited Akhilesh to join hands with Rahul Gandhi in Agra.

In a crucial breakthrough for the opposition bloc I.N.D.I.A (Indian National Developmental Inclusive Alliance), the Congress and the Samajwadi Party on Wednesday finally announced a seat-sharing pact for Lok Sabha elections in Uttar Pradesh. In the alliance, the Congress will contest 17 seats and the SP and its other allies will contest the remaining 63 seats. (ANI)
