The Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra, led by Rahul Gandhi, will resume from West Bengal’s Jalpaiguri district on Sunday after a two-day respite.
The Yatra, which began in Manipur on January 14, entered West Bengal from Assam on Thursday morning and stopped for a break, during which Gandhi returned to New Delhi.
“Mr Gandhi will arrive at Bagdogra Airport in Siliguri around 11.30 a.m. Following that, he will travel to Jalpaiguri, where the Yatra will resume,” state Congress leader Suvankar Sarkar explained.
The Yatra, which will go by bus and on foot, would spend the night near Siliguri, he said.
He added that on Monday, it will travel to Islampur in Uttar Dinajpur district before entering Bihar.
The Yatra is slated to re-enter West Bengal in January
