Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi will join Bharat Jodo Yatra on October 6 in Karnataka’s Mandya district, a top source told ANI.

It appears that Congress is trying to rejuvenate the party ahead of the Assembly elections in several States and 2024 Lok Sabha polls as Congress presidential elections will be held on October 17 in which Shashi Tharoor and Mallikarjun Kharge are in a direct fight while Gandhis have opted out of the race.

In a report by ANI , She is expected to leave for Karnataka on Monday afternoon and will reach the Mysore district. Sonia Gandhi will stay in Madikeri town of Kodagu district for two days before joining the Yatra.

Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra will also be joining the Yatra a day after Sonia Gandhi will join it, the source added.

Although Priyanka Gandhi’s program is yet to be finalised, she was expected to join the yatra earlier but due to some reasons she couldn’t join it, the sources said.

It will be the first time when all three Gandhis will be present in the Bharat Jodo Yatra which started from Kanyakumari on September 7 and has travelled from Tamil Nadu, Kerala and will cover 511 kilometres of the area in 21 days.

Sonia Gandhi recently travelled abroad for her medical checkup but during this period she lost her mother too.

Now the public appearance of all three Gandhis will be witnessed amid the schedule of the Congress president election and none of the Gandhis are fighting the poll.

Meanwhile, Congress MP Rahul Gandhi addressed a public rally amid a heavy downpour in Mysuru during the ongoing ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’.

“In uniting India, no one can stop us. From raising the voice of India, no one can stop us. Will go from Kanyakumari to Kashmir, no one can stop the Bharat Jodo Yatra,” Rahul Gandhi tweeted.
