Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra will join the Bharat Jodo Yatra on Wednesday when it enters Madhya Pradesh, senior party leader Jairam Ramesh said.
This is the first time that Priyanka Gandhi, general secretary in-charge of Uttar Pradesh, will be joining the Yatra.
In a tweet, Ramesh said Tuesday is a rest day for the Yatra which will resume on Wednesday when it will enter Madhya Pradesh near Burhanpur.
"Priyanka Gandhi will join the Yatra there and participate for four days," the Congress general secretary in-charge communications said in a tweet in Hindi.
