Caught unawares over his sudden shifting of gears, Gandhi's security personnel, Telangana PCC President Revanth Reddy and others also started scooting from brisk walk. Joined by party leaders and cadre, Gandhi resumed his foot march from here this morning and is expected to cover a distance of 22 KM, Congress party sources said.
The yatra will take a one-day break on November 4. The Wayanad MP will meet intellectuals, leaders of various communities, including personalities from the sporting, business and entertainment sectors during the party campaign in the southern state.
He will also visit prayer halls, mosques and temples across Telangana, and will offer prayers, members of the Telangana Pradesh Congress Committee said. The Bharat Jodo Yatra commenced on September 7 from Kanyakumari in Tamil Nadu.
Gandhi completed the marathon walk in Kerala, Andhra Pradesh and Karnataka, before beginning the Telangana leg of the yatra last week. The Telangana State Congress has formed 10 special committees to coordinate the yatra.
