"Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra" Launch Delayed as Rahul Gandhi's Flight Faces Visibility Issues

Imphal: The departure of Congress leaders, including Rahul Gandhi, for the commencement of the 'Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra' in Imphal faced a delay as their special IndiGo flight was held up at Delhi airport due to dense fog conditions causing low visibility.


IndiGo Airlines, acknowledging the weather challenges in northern India, issued a statement on X, warning of potential interruptions to flight schedules. Despite the delay, Rahul Gandhi arrived at Delhi airport, set to kick-start the 'Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra' from Thoubal in Manipur. The ambitious yatra is slated to cover a distance of over 6,700 kilometers across 67 days, traversing 110 districts. It will initiate in the northeastern states, pass through the north and central regions, and conclude in Maharashtra on March 20.

A shared video depicted several Congress leaders waiting in the airport lounge as multiple flight operations experienced delays due to low visibility and fog at Delhi airport. The visuals were captured at 9:10 am.

In the midst of these delays, Delhi recorded its coldest morning of the winter season on Sunday, with the minimum temperature dropping to 3.5 degrees Celsius. The mercury plunged even further to 3.4 degrees Celsius in the Lodhi Road area. A thick blanket of fog enveloped most parts of Delhi-NCR, leading to near-zero visibility.
