Senior BJP leader LK Advani began his 38-day Jan Chetna Yatra from Sitabdiara in Bihar today to make the people aware of the corruption of UPA government and for return of black money stashed away abroad.
Advani said the inspiration for this yatra had come from the work carried out by Jayprakash Narayan. He also emphasised that the yatra is aimed at good governance and clean politics, as also the issues of Lokpal and for bringing back black money stashed away abroad.
The rath yatra will go through 23 states and four union territories. Advani, who is undertaking his sixth yatra, will visit the North-East, Andaman and Nicobar Islands, Jammu, Gujarat, the southern states along with the poll-bound states of Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Punjab and Goa. The yatra will cover around 7,600 km and nearly 100 districts across the country.
