Mr. Joshi claims, “These yatras will focus on the revival of villages and making them self-reliant, plantation drive and zero budget farming.”

Union Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman has detailed the lawmakers on the recently introduced budget and termed it “visionary”.

“PM told the meeting that whatever we said in our Sankalp Patra (election manifesto) should be reflected in our vision of the future,” added Mr. Joshi. 

The 15 km foot march in a day will cover “every booth” and the lawmakers will have the chance to propagate teachings and ideology of Mahatma Gandhi.
