As Bharat Jodo Yatra enters Day 56, a look at key figures who took part in Rahul’s Unity March

The Bharat Jodo Yatra led by Rahul Gandhi for over 50 days had a surprise visitor in Telangana today. Actress-filmmaker Pooja Bhatt accompanied Rahul Gandhi during the yatra in the city of Hyderabad this morning.

Yesterday, Radhika Vemula, the mother of Dalit researcher Rohith Vemula, whose 2016 suicide sparked nationwide protests, joined Congresswoman Rahul Gandhi at his Bharat Jodo Yatra in Hyderabad.

Over the course of the Yatra that began in Kanyakumari in September, the yatra has seen several guests and politicians, besides locals, participate in the yatra, rubbing shoulders with Congress Neta Rahul Gandhi.

Several political leaders have sided with Rahul Gandhi in the past. Some of the names include former Congress President Sonia Gandhi, Thiruvananthapuram MP Shashi Tharoor, Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge, Swaraj India Founder Yogendra Yadav, JNUSU President Kanhaiya Kumar and several others.

There has also been a wave of Chief Ministers attending the Bharat Jodo Yatra. Some of these include – Tamil Nadu Chief Minister MK Stalin, Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot and Chhattisgarh CM Bhupesh Baghel.

Several celebrities who did not participate physically in the yatra also endorsed the yatra through social media. Earlier, Swara Bhasker praised Rahul Gandhi and the Yatra. “Credit where it belongs.. Despite electoral defeats, trolls, personal attacks and constant criticism that is ineffective, @RahulGandhi has not succumbed to common rhetoric or sensationalist politics. Given the situation of this country, effort like @bharatjodo is commendable!” Swara had tweeted.

Hollywood actor John Cusack also came out in September to support Rahul Gandhi’s Yatra and praised him for the hike to Kashmir from Kerala.

The highlight of the yatra according to the party is the relentless participation of the locals during the yatra trail. From old women, to children, to youngsters of all age groups have all walked together with Rahul Gandhi over the course of more than 50 days through South India.

Various artists have also joined Rahul Gandhi in various instances. Gandhi can also play instruments and even dance with performers. Last month, even Ram, Lakshman and Hanuman joined the yatra in Bellary, while performers dressed as the Ramayan characters joined Rahul Gandhi in Ballari.
