Rahul Gandhi,the Congress leader is ready to go with his many supporters. Even the weather condition could not be able to stop Rahul Gandhi. His dedication level is so high towards Bharat Jodo Yatra, as he entered the northern state of Punjab on Wednesday with full enthusiasm.
But the Punjab Police has requested Gandhi to delay the Bharat Joddho Yatra in the morning as the weather condition is worst, the temperature is below 10°C with dense fog which has reduced visibility up to 500 meters. But still, he begins his Yatra at 6 am from Fatehgarh Sahib Gurdwara to cover 25km for the day.
Gandhi said that while walking 3,300 km on foot across the country every farmer in Punjab walks more than this, firstly he goes to the farm, and then he goes to mandis. During his rally, Sirhind tries to briefly explain the struggle of farmers to his supporters. Gandhi in a red turban and his white T-shirt with his trademark, 52 years old Rahul Gandhi walked through Punjab town with his leaders from the state. Just a day before he had also visited Golden Temple and then return to Sirhind for the foot march.

Rahul Gandhi’s Call For Peace and Unity
Gandhi met with people during Yatra despite tight security. Several farmers also traveled from across the state to join Gandhi on the foot march. When Rahul entered the state Punjabi welcomed him with dhols, people in the buses try to block roads, and the National Highway was jammed with several buses on the Highway. That’s how the people of Punjab welcomed Gandhi. Gandhi try to tell people that this is not a political rally but this is meant to unite the country. The leader made a point to highlight that he is here to listen to people and not give speeches. We are trying to find out the problems that people are going through. We try to connect with farmers, laborers, unemployed youth, and women and try to learn something from them. Opposition is trying to divide people but our focus is to give a message of unity and peace. We are trying to tell people what India is known for. India never discriminates against people of different castes, colors, creeds, religions, or languages.
