The Odisha phase of the Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra, led by Congress MP Rahul Gandhi, is set to wrap up on Thursday, according to party leader Jairam Ramesh.
Taking to social media, X, Congress General Secretary in-charge Communications Jairam Ramesh, said that the yatra will have a two-day respite beginning this afternoon.
“This morning, after going through Jharsuguda District, there will be a flag handover at Rengalpali and the Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra will complete its Odisha run and move into Chhattisgarh. After 12 continuous days on the road, from this afternoon onwards, through the 9th and 10th, the Yatra will be on a break. The Yatra will resume on the morning of the 11th of February in Raigarh, Chhattisgarh,” Jairam Ramesh wrote on X.

On Wednesday, the 25th day of the Nyay Yatra, Congress MP Rahul Gandhi paid a visit to Vedvyas Dham in the Sundergarh region of Western Odisha. The cave of this temple is thought to be the location where philosopher and poet Ved Vyas ji wrote the Mahabharata.
