Jaipur: Calling Rahul Gandhi's Bharat Jodo Yatra a "unique and historic" movement, Rajasthan Health Minister Parsadi Lal Meena said the Congress's yatra is much bigger than Lord Rama's padyatra from Ayodhya to Sri Lanka.
Taking a jibe at Mr Meena's statement, the Bharatiya Janata Party or BJP said the Congress leaders had resorted to "flattery" to save their existence.
"Lord Rama had also traveled on foot from Ayodhya to Sri Lanka, but now Rahul Gandhi will walk even more, from Kanyakumari to Kashmir," Mr Meena said in Dausa on the sidelines of a programme on Monday.
The Congress had launched its 3,500 km, 150-day Bharat Jodo Yatra from Tamil Nadu's Kanyakumari on September 7. The march will cover 12 states and two Union Territories in about five months.
Claiming the BJP has spoiled the atmosphere of the country, he said Rahul Gandhi is undertaking the yatra to correct the atmosphere in the country, to restore peace and harmony.
He said no one has ever seen or will be able to do such a padyatra.
