The doors of Bharat Jodo Yatra are open to everyone who wants to connect India.

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi addressed the media at the Congress headquarters on Saturday. He said, BJP-RSS are like gurus for me. Thanks to BJP-Sangh for attacking me. This journey is trying to tell us something and if we don't listen to it, it would be an insult to that voice.

Rahul Gandhi said, I know that all the leaders of the opposition are standing with us. The doors of Bharat Jodo Yatra are open to everyone who wants to connect India. There is uniformity in ideology. There is no uniformity in hatred, violence and love. Akhilesh ji and Mayawati ji, who want an India of love, not of hatred. So there is a relationship with him. 

'Government is unnecessarily making issue of my security'

Rahul said,  I am doing Bharat Jodo Yatra. Now the government wants me to go from Kanyakumari to Kashmir in a bulletproof vehicle. This is not acceptable to me. When their senior leader comes out of the bulletproof car, no letter arrives. They break their own protocol. So is the protocol different for them – different for me. How do I travel in a bulletproof vehicle? They are probably making a case that Rahul keeps breaking his security.

Rahul said on wearing T-shirt - I am not feeling cold

When a reporter asked Rahul why he wore T-shirt even in this cold. So Rahul jokingly said – You are wearing a sweater, it does not mean that it is cold, it means that you are afraid of cold. I am not afraid of cold. The real reason I'm wearing a T-shirt is because I'm not cold yet. When I can, I will start wearing sweaters.
