Rahul Gandhi’s posters torn in Karnataka before Bharat Jodo Yatra enters state

Bengaluru, Sep 29, 2022: The Congress’s Bharat Jodo Yatra is scheduled to enter its Karnataka leg through Chamarajanagar district on September 30. Ahead of the party yatra’s arrival in the state, posters put up to welcome Rahul Gandhi were torn in the state’s Gundlupet area.




More than 40 posters put up to welcome the yatra have been torn.

Congress leaders have accused BJP workers of tearing the posters of Rahul Gandhi and other Congress leaders that were put up on the highway passing through Gundlupet.

Meanwhile, Rahul Gandhi led the Bharat Jodo Yatra on Thursday as it resumed from Kerala’s Nilambur on the last day of the Kerala leg. The yatra which started on September 7 is currently on its 22nd day.



In Karnataka, the Bharat Jodo Yatra will be vital for Congress leaders fighting against the ruling BJP. Talking to India Today, political analyst Sandeep Shastri said, “The yatra is a Congress movement to reassert its presence nationally and in Karnataka. They have a straight fight with the BJP. It became even more critical for the Karnataka Congress. The yatra is vital for the state as it will help cement Congress’s reputation as a formidable Opposition.”

The yatra is also an opportunity for former chief minister and leader of Opposition in the Karnataka Assembly, Siddaramaiah and DK Shivakumar to prove their mettle to Rahul Gandhi.

However, so far, Siddaramaiah has remained away from the yatra. He was not spotted during the launch of the yatra in Kanyakumari, when all the other top Congress leaders, including Shivakumar marked their presence.
