Gandhi was apparently referring to business tycoons, Mukesh Ambani, and Gautam Adani. The former Congress president has repeatedly accused Modi-led dispensation of only working for the billionaires in the past and neglecting the needs of common people.

Gandhi was received by Congress district president Kamal Patel and MLAs Mahesh Parmar, Ramlal Malviya among others in Ujjain. The Congress yatra reached Panthpiplai village located in Ujjain district. Hundreds of workers were seen walking together on the 83rd day of the march.

The yatra has traversed through Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and Maharashtra so far.
