On Tuesday, the Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra marked its 38th day. The yatra commenced from Fursantganj in Amethi district and proceeded towards Raebareli and Lucknow.

It is pertinent to mention that Raebareli is considered to be a Congress family bastion. It was represented by former Congress president Sonia Gandhi before she moved to Rajya Sabah this year, and earlier by her mother-in-law and former prime minister Indira Gandhi. Sonia Gandhi has never lost from Raebareli since 2004 and was the lone winner for her party in Uttar Pradesh in the 2019 Lok Sabha polls.
