Mysuru, Oct 3: Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi arrived in Mysuru on Monday and will proceed to Kodagu for two-day rest with family and will be joining Rahul Gandhi’s Bharat Jodo Yatra on October 6.

KPCC Chief D K Shivakumar and his brother D K Suresh, MP, received Sonia Gandhi at Mysuru airport on Monday.

Briefing reporters in Mysuru, the KPCC Chief said Sonia Gandhi will be taking a two-day rest in Kodagu and the responsibility for looking after Ms Gandhi’s stay and all arrangements in Kodagu for the stay have been entrusted to Kodagu District Congress President and 15 party leaders.

Except the Kodagu DCC President and 15 authorised persons, nobody else will be allowed to visit and meet Ms Gandhi and disturb her, Shivakumar said urging Kodagu and Mysuru Congress leaders to cooperate.

Shivakumar said Sonia Gandhi has no official programme in Kodagu and has decided to take a break and rest in Kodagu for two days with family instead of going back to Delhi and coming back to join the Yatra, which will have a two-day break due to Dasara festival.

Sonia Gandhi will be joining the Bharat Jodo Yatra on October 6. The Congress presidential poll candidate Mallikarjuna Kharge will be joining the Yatra on October 5 or 6, Shivakumar said making it clear that nobody will be allowed to garland the leaders during the Yatra.

Rahul Gandhi visited the Suttur Math in the morning and met Sri Shivaratrishwar Deshikendra Swamiji to receive the seer’s blessings. KPCC Chief Shivakumar, Congress Opposition leader in the Assembly Siddaramaiah, AICC General Secretary Randeep Singh Surjewala and other leaders accompanied the former Congress president during the visit to Suttur Math.

Rahul Gandhi, Shivakumar, Siddaramaiah and KPCC Campaign Committee Chairman M B Patil and others visited the Sri Chamundeshwari temple in the morning and offered puja to goddess Chamundeshwari.

The KPCC Chief said the Bharat Jodo Yatra, which has already covered two districts in the State and entering the third on Monday, has received tremendous support and enthusiastic response from the people. Youth and famers as well as people from different sections including women and children have enthusiastically participated in the Yatra.

Answering questions on ruling BJP leaders attacking the Yatra, Shivakumar said: “We are not bothered about what anybody says or criticises. Sun sets and rises and the Yatra goes on irrespective of heavy downpour. Rain, winds or chill does not come in the way. Our Yatra is for country’s unity.”

    Though there are lot of people supporting this Yatra , when it comes to voting they go and vote BJP. Corrupt politicians join BJP to make money. Goa is a good example of this. Modi and his party has targeted Gandhi family over the years spreading all kind of false stories about them with the help of corrupt media. For Karnataka to improve we should get rid of 40% government.

    Rahul Gandhi has shown exemplary behaviour.. generally balanced statements .. Interacting well with masses .. genuine .. body language... Spreading the message of what is important is ...humanity ....... The RSS .. Godi media have systematically tried to damage his reputation by Referring to him as PAPPU .. travels abroad and so forth .. Last 10 to 12 years ...a malicious campaign against Rahul Gandhi ... Whether congress capitalises on this Yatra .. voters will decide..... but Rahul has sincerely shown the path ..not high flying helicopters .. aircraft’s .. security and convoys costing crores and crores ...simple difficult padayatra ... Now reflect on .. various statements from ruling dispensation.. Thalia Bajao .. weather was good to escape radar detection .. bakakot strike .. Controversy over degree certificate .... Demonetisation disaster .. COVID mismanaged badly .. Dollar rate collapsing .. various other foolish decisions...

    Congress wave in Karntaka for certain. Look at the disasters that have arisen in Modi's wake and compared to that, the crops have become bumper after RG's entry. There's something called as a vibe and Karnataka is only Congress. From Silicon valley to valley of sorrows, Congress is needed to return Karnataka to it's former glory.
