Congress workers from all 1,860 booths will arrive for the event. About 25 to 30 thousand workers will participate, he said.
The Center has cheated the state by not giving its due share in GST, and the state government has broken the backs of the farmers with its policies. No schemes are being implemented to supplement the farmers, he alleged.
‘Prajadhwani Yatra’ was organized to expose the failures of the “double-engine government”, he said.
