The Congress party will launch its ‘Parivartan Sankalp Yatra’ in the state of Gujarat ahead of the 2022 state elections.

Gujarat: On Tuesday, the Congress will begin the ‘Gujarat Parivartan Sankalp Yatra’ in five zones of the state, with 145 public meetings and 95 rallies planned along the route covering more than 5,400 km.

Party leaders said it will be launched from Vadgam, Bhuj, Somnath, Vadgam, Fagvel, and Jambusar.

The yatra was originally supposed to start on Monday, but was postponed to Tuesday because of the Morbi bridge collapse on Sunday. The Election Commission has not yet announced its schedule for the Gujarat Assembly polls, which are due this year-end.

Party leaders said that senior Congress leaders, including Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot, his Chhattisgarh counterpart Bhupesh Baghel, former Madhya Pradesh chief ministers Digvijaya Singh and Kamal Nath, and MLA Sachin Pilot, are expected to join the yatra.

“The Congress’ ‘Parivartan Sankalp Yatra’ will be launched in five zones of Gujarat, with 145 public meetings and 95 rallies organised throughout the journey.” State Congress president Jagdish Thakor said that the yatra, which will cover 5,432 km, aims to establish a direct contact with 4.5 crore people.

He said that more than 10 lakh party workers will join the yatra and the opposition party will spread the message of 11 promises that it has said it will fulfil if voted to power.

The Congress has promised free treatment of up to Rs 10 lakh, farmers’ debt waiver of up to Rs 3 lakh, electricity bill waiver, 10 lakh government jobs to youth, unemployment allowance of Rs 3,000 per month, opening of 3,000 government English medium schools, Rs 4 lakh compensation for COVID-19 deaths, and other things.
