Bharat Jodo Yatra of the Congress party, led by Rahul Gandhi, began its eleventh day on Sunday from Alappuzha.

Congress leaders continued the Kerala leg of the yatra on Sunday morning from Haripad in the Alappuzha district after travelling 200 kilometres. At the Sree Kuruttu Bhagavathi Temple in Thottappally, the padyatra will stop. The yatra will stop at TD Medical College and Hospital, Vandanam, in the evening. The Yatra is now in the state of Kerala and will continue there for the next 12 days.

The 3,500 km march from Kanyakumari to Kashmir would take 150 days to complete and pass through up to 12 states. The Yatra will depart from Kerala and travel through the state for the following 18 days before arriving in Karnataka on September 30. Before travelling farther north, it will spend 21 days in Karnataka. Every day, the Padyatra (march) will travel 25 kilometres.

However, the Bharat Jodo Yatra of the Congress, meantime, was dogged by controversy after a video of local Congress officials reportedly extorting money from a vegetable vendor in Kollam, Kerala, surfaced.
