Congress MP Rahul Gandhi on Thursday said that the idea that is pushing the Bharat Jodo Yatra ahead is an India that is not at war with itself.

Addressing the media, the Wayanad MP said, "The yatra is to tell the people of India that they need to be united. They need to go back to an India which was loving and affectionate towards itself."

"The success of this yatra is based on a couple of ideas. An idea that India which is united, an India which is not at war with itself, and an India that is not filled with hate," he added.

Earlier in the day, Rahul resumed the 'Bharat Jodo Yatra' by planting a sapling brought from Lakshadweep at the premises of the Union Christian College Aluva.

He also paid floral tribute to a mango tree planted by Mahatma Gandhi at the college on March 18, 1925.

"Day 15 began at 6:20 am from UC College, Aluva with @RahulGandhi paying floral tribute at a mango tree planted by the Mahatma there on [email protected] planted a sapling brought from Lakshadweep by a delegation of Athithi Yatris. This is the spirit of #BharatJodoYatra," senior Congress leader Jairam Ramesh tweeted.

Thousands joined Gandhi on the 15th day of the Bharat jodo Yatra, with one side of the national highway completely filled with Congress workers waving the party flag.
