Congress leader Rahul Gandhi was joined for the first time on Thursday by his sister and party secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, along with her son, husband Robert Vadra and son Rehan, in the Madhya Pradesh leg of Bharat Jodo Yatra.
On the second day of the Madhya Pradesh stage of the yatra, Rahul Gandhi started the foot march from Borgaon in Khandwa district. Priyanka Gandhi, her husband Robert Vadra and son Rehan matched Rahul Gandhi.
“The steps will be strong when we walk together. In #BharatJodoYatra
@RahulGandhi reaches shoulder to shoulder with @priyankagandhi,” the congress said in a tweet with a photo of the siblings.
Congress leader Sachin Pilot also joined the Gandhis at the Bharat Jodo Yatra in Borgaon village in Madhya Pradesh on Thursday. Pilot had previously joined the foot march in Kochi when he was in the midst of another fight with Rajasthan CM Ashok Gehlot.
Congress workers used slogans in support of Rahul and Priyanka Gandhi and tried to get close to them, but police prevented them from doing so. Police personnel on both sides of the road held ropes as part of Rahul Gandhi’s security.
The yatra will enter Rajasthan from Madhya Pradesh on December 4, having covered a distance of 380 km.
