Congress leader Jairam Ramesh on Wednesday wondered if there were winds of "change" in Uttar Pradesh as he claimed that Rahul Gandhi and others in the Bharat Jodo Yatra were greeted by people at the BJP office in Barauli in Baghpat district.

He also talked about the letter Acharya Satyendra Das, chief priest of the Ram Janmabhoomi Temple, wrote to Gandhi on Yatra and the "praise" by Champat Rai, secretary of the Shri Ram Janmabhoomi Teerth Kshetra Trust. "After a letter from the head priest of Ayodhya Ram temple welcoming Bharat Jodo Yatra and the praise for Rahul Gandhi from VHP leaders like Champat Rai, the yatris were greeted with enthusiastic hand-waving from the BJP office in Baghpat's Barauli today," Ramesh said in a tweet in Hindi.

"Signs of climate change in Yogi's state?" the Congress general secretary said on Twitter. Speaking to journalists on the Bharat Jodo Yatra after a meeting of the Ram Temple Trust at Faizabad Circuit House late on Tuesday, Rai said, "I express my gratitude to a young man (Rahul Gandhi) who is walking in the country. I appreciate this step." He added that "there is nothing wrong in this, I am a worker of the RSS (Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh) and the RSS never condemns Bharat Jodo Yatra".

"He (Rahul Gandhi) is walking in this bad weather, it should be appreciated. I must say that everyone should travel the country." In a letter to Gandhi, the chief priest Acharya Satyendra Das extended his support to the former Congress chief over his move to unite the country.

"I hope and pray that the mission for which you are fighting is successful. I bless you for your long life," the letter stated. "You are working for the noble cause that is 'sarvajan hitay sarvjan sukhaay' in the interest of people and for the happiness of the people. I wish the blessings of Lord Rama be upon you always,” it added. The Bharat Jodo Yatra led by Rahul Gandhi is currently passing through Uttar Pradesh.
