The yatra will return to Rajasthan on March 7 for a public meeting in Banswara before heading into Gujarat, he said. In Gujarat, the yatra will pass through Dahod, Panchmahal, Chota Udaipur, Narmada, Bharuch, Surat and Tapi districts, Ramesh said.

On March 10, the yatra will reach Maharashtra, passing through Nandurbar and Dhule districts on its first day in the state, he informed. The east-to-west Manipur-Mumbai yatra, which entered Rajasthan on Sunday, is scheduled to traverse 6,700 kilometres through 15 states. It aims at highlighting the message of "nyay (justice)" while meeting common people on the way.
