Bengal: Rahul Gandhi-led Congress yatra resumes from Jalpaiguri after 2-day break

The Rahul Gandhi-led ‘Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra’ resumed from West Bengal’s Jalpaiguri district on Sunday after a two-day break. Sitting atop an SUV along with state Congress president Adhir Ranjan Chowdhury, Gandhi traversed through the town of Jalpaiguri, as he waved at onlookers.

The yatra will halt for the night near Siliguri, a state Congress leader said. On Monday, it will head to Islampur in Uttar Dinajpur district, before entering Bihar, he said. Earlier in the day, Gandhi was received at the Bagdogra airport in Siliguri in the northern part of the state by Chowdhury.
