Due to the long journey, it is not easy to walk in police boots for hours everyday. Police boots are very heavy and their soles are very hard. That’s why the uniform pattern has been changed for the police personnel.

The weight of many leaders and workers participating in the ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ led by Rahul Gandhi is decreasing rapidly. Not only party leaders and workers have participated in this journey from Kanyakumari to Kashmir. Apart from them, many other people like the police and the team of doctors have also joined, who walk along with Rahul Gandhi. A news paper talked to some such passengers and health experts, who told that their weight has decreased a lot due to this journey and is continuing to decrease.
People participating in the Bharat Jodo Yatra, including Rahul Gandhi, cover a distance of about 25 kilometers daily. Long distance has to be covered so they eat very light food. The weight of 80 percent of the people participating in the yatra has decreased from 5 to 13 kg. There are many passengers who are not used to walking so much. His weight has also reduced to a great extent. According to Dainik Bhaskar’s report, Rajasthan Youth Board President Sitaram Lamba is also a part of this Bharat Jodo Yatra. He said, ‘My weight was 78 kg earlier. But now it has come down to 70 kilos. I have never had such a lifestyle before that I have to get up at 4 in the morning and walk 25 kms. He said that we take good lunch or breakfast. But let’s lighten the dinner.
Many police personnel involved in the journey
At the same time, Professor Manoj Saluja of Kota Medical College said that walking for one kilometer burns about 30-40 calories and we walk for 25 kilometers daily, due to which the body weight is decreasing. Not only this, 600 police personnel and officers have also participated in this yatra, who are running with the passengers wearing sports shoes to look after the security system. Due to the long journey, it is not easy to walk in police boots for hours everyday. Police boots are very heavy and their soles are very hard. That’s why the uniform pattern has been changed for the police personnel and permission has been given to wear sports shoes instead of police boots.
Rajasthan will follow after Madhya Pradesh
The yatra led by Rahul entered Madhya Pradesh on 23 November from Bodarli village in Burhanpur district, called the “Gate of the South” after passing through Maharashtra. This yatra will cover a distance of 380 kilometers in the Malwa-Nimar region of western Madhya Pradesh within 12 days before entering Rajasthan on December 4. In Madhya Pradesh, the yatra has so far passed through Burhanpur, Khandwa, Khargone and Indore districts.
