The party leaders are saying that they are hopeful that this trip will help to unite the country.

G-23 leader, senior Anand Sharma, who has been voicing dissatisfaction with the Congress leadership for some time now, wished Rahul Gandhi. On the other hand, Congress leader Kanhaiya Kumar said that if BJP’s Rath Yatra is for power, Congress Bharat Jodo Yatra is for protecting truth.
