Congress leader Rahul Gandhi’s ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ took a break on Friday.
General Secretary in-charge Communications, Jairam Ramesh, tweeted: “After covering 333 kms, Bharat Yatris are taking a well-earned break in Thrissur district.
“Last rest day was on Sep 15th after we hit 150 kms.
“On rest days, Yatris refresh their body & mind for next leg of #BharatJodoYatra.
“Today a medical camp is being organised for them.”
Party sources, however, said the state-wide hartal called by the Popular Front of India (PFI) is also one of the reasons for taking a break on this day. PFI is being investigated by the NIA and several of its leaders and members faced arrest on Thursday.
The Yatra will commence from Thrissur on Saturday.
