Congress digs PMs southern states visits; says impact of Bharat Jodo Yatratext_fields
New Delhi: The opposition party's Bharat Jodo Yatra is already having an impact, according to the Congress, but no stunts can compare to the connection made with people by walking beside them and paying attention to what they have to say.
From Friday, Modi will spend two days travelling to the southern states of Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh, and Telangana, where he will attend various functions and introduce development plans.
Taking a dig at his visit, Congress general secretary in charge of communications Jairam Ramesh said the impact of the Bharat Jodo Yatra, the foot march taken out by the party from Kanniyakumari to Kashmir, is already being felt.
"PM is now on a 2-day visit of 4 South Indian states that the Yatra has been through. There will undoubtedly be big photo-ops for camera-jeevi. But no antics can match the connection from walking with and LISTENING to the people," Ramesh said in a tweet.
Former Congress chief Rahul Gandhi, along with other party leaders and workers, embarked on the Bharat Jodo Yatra from Kanniyakumari on September 7.
The yatra has traversed through Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, and is currently in Maharashtra.
