Asserting that he did not feel any fatigue from the march, the former Congress president said, “When I went to Delhi for Diwali and was sleeping in my room, I was missing my container and told people around I wanted to go back to the container.”
“Even Nath was suffering from high fever in the morning and I told him to take rest, but he refused, took medicines to take part in the march and he is smiling now,” Gandhi said.
Accusing the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) of spreading hatred and lies, Gandhi said they had decided to hit the roads as the government was not allowing them to raise their voice.
Earlier in the day, the yatra had resumed near Annapurna Dhaba in Lala Khedi village at 6 am. This is the 88th day of the yatra since it stared from Kanyakumari and the 12th day in MP.
Flanked by folk singer Prahlad Tippaniyaa and his group, who sang Kabir songs, and Congress MLA Jitu Patwari among others, Gandhi was seen walking briskly in the morning hours.

Earlier, talking to reporters at Soyatkalan camp, Kamal Nath said the main aim of Gandhi’s Bharat Jodo Yatra is to save the Constitution and culture in the country.
