Unlike the previous Bharat Jodo Yatra, the latest Bharat Nyay Yatra will be undertaken on a bus. However, Venugopal added that, though this is a bus yatra but there will be a walking stretch as well.

Speaking on the objectives of the yatra, he added that Bharat Nyay Yatra, the name itself is reflecting the objective of the yatra, 'Sabke liye nyay chahiye'..." “This Yatra is going to interact with youth, women and marginalised people," he said.

The East-West yatra will be flagged off by Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge on January 14th from Manipur capital Imphal. Speaking on the starting the yatra from Manipur, Venugopal added, “Without Manipur how can we do a yatra? We have to try to heal the pain of the people of Manipur.."

Earlier, the Bharat Jodo Yatra, which started in Kanyakumari on September 7 2022 was led by Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, concluded on January 30 2023 in Srinagar after covering 3,970 km, 12 states, and two Union territories and having lasted more than 130 days.

In the first leg of the yatra, Gandhi had walked almost 4,000 km from Kanyakumari to Kashmir. The impact of Rahul Gandhi's yatra was seen during the polls in Karnataka and Himachal Pradesh, as the Congress recorded a sharp increase in strike rate and vote share. The Yatra travelled 511km in Karnataka over 22 days between Gundlupet constituency and Raichur Rural constituency.
