Raipur (Chattisgarh), February 26: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Sunday stated that he has learnt a lot during 'Bharat Jodo Yatra' and met people from all sections of society.
"During Bharat Jodo Yatra I learned a lot. I walked for my nation from Kanyakumari to Kashmir. Thousands connected with me and other party leaders during the yatra. I listened to all problems of farmers and realised their pain,"the MP from Kerala's Wayanad constituency said.
The yatra began on September 7, 2022, in Kanyakumari and ended in Jammu and Kashmir, covering a total distance of approximately 4,000 kilometres over the course of four and a half months.
He also mentioned the Jammu and Kashmir leg of his journey, saying he felt at home when he arrived.

"52 years passed and I still don't have a home, but when I reached Kashmir, it felt like home. The yatra was to make people of all castes and age groups feel at home. People were not talking political with me during the yatra but it all changed when I reached Kashmir."
The walk, according to Congress, was intended to unite and strengthen India. It also sought to address unemployment and inflation, as well as the "politics of hate and division and over-centralization of our political system."
In addition, Rahul Gandhi, addressing the BJP, stated that politics should revolve around unemployment and economic issues.
"During elections, issues not relevant to the public are raised. Politics should be on how to tackle unemployment, strengthen GDP, and take our economy forward. The BJP raided us but we are standing strong."
