Akhilesh Yadav Joins Rahul Gandhi Yatra, Days After Seat-Sharing Deal

New Delhi:

Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav has joined the Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra led by Rahul Gandhi that has been passing through Agra in Uttar Pradesh. The overture came days after the seat-sharing deal between the SP and the Congress. Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, who helped finalise the deal between the two parties that have long been on ice, is also at the spot.

Mr Yadav is one of the first key Opposition leaders to join the massive cross-country footmarch that is expected to culminate in Mumbai.

Trinamool Congress chief and Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had stayed away from the rally when it passed through the state amid a fresh bout of bitterness between the two parties.

Earlier this week, reaching out personally to Akhilesh Yadav, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra had accepted the SP’s 17-seat offer in Uttar Pradesh.
