Congress President Rahul Gandhi, taking to Twitter, congratulated youth Congress workers for covering a distance of 22,000 km to take the message of the party to the people and make them aware of the Modi government’s “failures”.

“Delhi will be the 26th state, where the journey will be concluded tomorrow. So, in these 26 states, in the last 46 days, in different places of the country, through meetings, small assemblies, big rallies, ‘nukkad’ meetings and all the discussions, at all places...the situation that came to the fore, is definitely a matter of concern,” IYC President Keshav Chand Yadav said at a media briefing here. He said that during the Yatra they raised issues of the youth, minorities and Dalits, farmers, education, and pollution of the Ganga river.
