The Yatra

I am not a member of any party. A party means high command. You have to follow certain orders, whereas I want to retain my individuality. If the Congress comes to power, I will raise questions before them as well. But I found the Bharat Jodo Yatra historical. The only pada­yatra I remember before this was undertaken by Sunil Dutt saahab in 1987, when he walked some 2000 kms from Bombay to Amritsar to establish harmony and brotherhood when Punjab was facing heightened militancy.
