Welcome flexes bearing pictures of Congress MP Rahul Gandhi were seen vandalized in the Gundlupet town in the Chamarajanagar district of the state on Thursday ahead of Bharat Jodo Yatra entering Karnataka.
The flexes were installed by Congress to welcome Rahul Gandhi, who is scheduled to arrive at Gundlupet on September 30. Other flexes, that were put on the Highway passing through Gundlupet having pictures of different Congress Party leaders were also torn, according to reports.
More than 40 flexes were torn. The Congress leaders have accused Bhartiya Janta Party’s workers of this ‘mischief’.
Rahul Gandhi is currently leading Bharat Jodo Yatra, a national campaign of the party in a few decades. The 3,500-km march from Kanyakumari to Kashmir will be completed in 150 days and cover as many as 12 states. From Kerala, the Yatra will traverse through the state for the next 18 days, reaching Karnataka on September 30. It will be in Karnataka for 21 days before moving north. The Padyatra (march) will cover a distance of 25 km every day.
