Terming the 3,700-kilometre foot-march as a historic feat, state Congress president Nath said the Yatra is working as a catalyst to bring each and every person from different religions, castes and societies together.

Party national general secretary Priyanka Gandhi will join Rahul Gandhi at 9 pm on Wednesday with her family.

As per the information, Rahul Gandhi will take breakfast at Daryapur village, followed by lunch at St Xavier's International School.
