Former RBI governor Raghuram Rajan joins Rahul Gandhi at Bharat Jodo Yatra

Guwahati: Former governor of Reserve Bank of India (RBI) – Raghuram Rajan took part in Rahul Gandhi’s Bharat Jodo Yatra on Wednesday.

The ongoing Bharat Jodo Yatra is currently traversing through the western state of Rajasthan.

The former governor of the Reserve Bank was seen strolling along with prominent Congressmen Sachin Pilot and Rahul Gandhi.

Notably, Raghuram Rajan has been an outspoken opponent of both demonetisation and India’s economic expansion.

The Bharat Jodo Yatra started from Kanyakumari on September 7 and thus far has covered the states of Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka, Telangana, Maharashtra and Madhya Pradesh.

The Bharat Jodo Yatra has so far attracted a large number of politicians, celebrities, activists, and ex-administrators.

In response to Raghuram Rajan’s involvement in the footmarch, the BJP claimed that Rajan “fancies himself as the next Manmohan Singh.”

“Raghuram Rajan, former RBI Governor, a Congress appointee, joining Rahul Gandhi’s Bharat Jodo Yatra is not a surprise. He fancies himself as the next Manmohan Singh. Just that his commentary on India’s economy should be discarded with disdain. It is coloured and opportunistic,” said BJP leader Amit Malviya.

The Bharat Jodo Yatra is expected to arrive in Kashmir and come to an end on Republic Day of next year.
