A troupe member was also seen attempting to photograph Rahul Gandhi while he sat down in the middle of the performance. Rahul resumed his performance after a brief break. Sachin Pilot was hesitant to join the other leaders in the dance, but he eventually did. The troupe was also seen performing stunts at the end of the video.

According to ANI, Gandhi said after the performance that the yatra is teaching him things that he cannot learn "while travelling in an aeroplane, a helicopter, or any vehicle."

After 12 days in Madhya Pradesh, the yatra entered Rajasthan from the Madhya Pradesh district of Agar Malwa, where the yatris had to cross a bridge over the Chanvali river with Gandhi sitting in a vehicle.

The yatra, which began on September 8 in Kanyakumari, is now entering a Congress-ruled state for the first time. According to the official schedule, Gandhi will begin the Rajasthan leg of his yatra on Monday at 6 a.m. from Kali Talai. He will arrive at the Bali Borda chauraha at 10 am after travelling 14 kilometres. The Congress leader will hold a corner meeting at Chandrabhaga chauraha in the evening.
