"What is in the country's heart got to hear that directly [interacting with people]. The yatra has received good response in Haryana — it is energetic, enthusiastic response," he said.
In an attack on the critics of the yatra, Mr. Gandhi said when it was started, “people said the response which we got in Kerala, we won’t get that in Karnataka, which is a BJP-ruled State. But we got an even better response there. Then they said the yatra got a response in south India, but when it reaches Maharashtra, it won’t get that response. When we reached Maharashtra, we got even better response than the south”.
