New Delhi:

The Congress spent Rs 71.8 crore on its Kanyakumari to Kashmir Bharat Jodo Yatra which amounts to an average of more than Rs 49 lakh per day for the 145-day journey that culminated in Srinagar on January 30 last year.

The party spent Rs 40,10,15,572 on pre-poll surveys in 2022-23, up from Rs 23,00,000 that it had spent in the previous fiscal, as per the party’s latest annual audit report filed with the Election Commission for FY 2022-23.

The party’s election expenditure was more than Rs 192.5 crore in 2022-23, down from more than 279.5 crore in the previous fiscal.

During the period of the audit, the party fought elections in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh in 2022 and Tripura, Nagaland and Meghalaya in early 2023. The party won in Himachal Pradesh.

The Congress’ receipts for the 2022-23 fiscal stood at Rs 452.3 crore, down from the previous fiscal’s 541.2 crore.

The total amount spent in this fiscal on Rahul Gandhi-led Bharat Jodo Yatra was 71,83,96,270 crore. The yatra lasted for 145 days and therefore, the average per day cost amounts to Rs 49,20,522.

Gandhi had culminated the yatra that covered some 4,000 km from Kanyakumari to Kashmir on January 30 last year.

The Congress leader, who started the yatra on September 7, 2022, crossed a dozen states and two Union Territories.

During the yatra, Gandhi addressed 12 public meetings, more than 100 corner meetings and 13 press conferences. He had over 275 planned walking interactions and more than 100 sitting interactions.
