The yatra will travel through the city in the following order: Hadapsar, Magarpatta, Pulgate, Golibar ground, Seven Loves chowk, Swargate, Sarasbaug, Tilak road, Shastri road, Dattawadi, Nal stop, Karve road, FC road, Agriculture college, Sancheti hospital, RTO, Jehangir hospital, Yerawada, Ahmednagar road and end at Chandannagar.

The CM will stay in Pune overnight and the yatra will start from Dandekar bridge the next day and continue ahead to other parts of the state.

Misal said that the local BJP unit has organised a welcome event for the chief minister and state unit president Chandrakant Patil. The city unit has planned the city leg of the rally. Girish Bapat and Sanjay Kakade, members of parliament (MP) will also be a part of the rally.
