In an attempt to revive its political fortunes in Assam and lay the pitch for the 2024 state polls, Congress in Assam today launched the Assam edition of the Bharat Jodo Yatra in line with the main nation-wide march that party leader Rahul Gandhi is leading.
The Assam Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) is organising this march as a mass contact mission of the party, from Dhubri in lower Assam to Sadiya in upper Assam, with the aim of covering 834 km in the state.
The Assam march kicked off today, led by APCC President Bhupen Kumar Borah, and plans to cover 834 km across the state within 70 days. The Yatra started from Golakganj in the Dhubri district situated along the Assam-West Bengal border, to the Sadiya district along the Assam-Arunachal Pradesh border.
In addition to all top state leaders of Congress, several central leaders came for the start of the Assam version of the Yatra. However, Rahul Gandhi did not join.
Troubled by a series of desertion of party leaders to the BJP, Congress hopes this Yatra will give a much-needed momentum to the party in the state ahead of the Lok Sabha polls and Panchayat elections, which will be held next year.
