The yatra began from the Delhi state Congress office Rajiv Bhavan situated in Deendayal Upadhyay Marg and headed to Rajghat. The party workers were seen shouting slogans- ‘Mahatma Gandhi Amar Rahein‘. In the march, a tableau of Gandhi’s Sabarmati Ashram and his iconic wooden spinning wheel were also spotted today.
Thousands of Congress activists have joined the march wearing white clothes and Gandhi caps on their heads. Earlier, Congress interim President Sonia Gandhi was supposed to lead the march but Rahul Gandhi took the lead instead owing to her health reasons.
Taking to Twitter, Rahul Gandhi also paid his tributes to the father of the nation.
On his 150th Jayanti, my tributes to Mahatma Gandhi Ji, the “Father of the Nation”, who through his words & deeds, showed us that love for all living beings & non violence is the only way to defeat oppression, bigotry & hatred.
