Thrissur (Kerala): The 18th day of Congress leader Rahul Gandhi’s ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ resumed with the involvement of hundreds of people from Thiroor in Thrissur on Sunday.

The today’s Kerala leg of Yatra will halt at St Francis Xavier’s Forane Church at 10 am and resume from Wadakkancherry Junction at 5 pm to reach Vettikattiri at 7 pm.

Rahul Gandhi on Saturday said the motive of the Yatra is to resist state-sponsored hatred, fight communal agenda, question economic blunders and raise the voice of farmers and youth.

“A divided and hate-filled India is not in our interest. The people of Kerala have shown that they believe in love, not hate. They believe in unity, not division. The government at centre preaches hatred, arrogance and division,” he alleged.

Over 19 days in the state, the Yatra will cover seven districts’ over 450 kms, before it commences in Karnataka on October 1.

The Bharat Jodo Yatra is a five month, over 3,500 km-long foot march from Kanyakumari to Srinagar. It is part of the party’s national mass outreach program aimed at highlighting social polarisation, economic inequalities and political centralisation.
