"Under the directions of Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi, we have started Mukti Yatra from West Midnapore to sensitize people about the anti-people policies of the state government and the Saradha chit fund scam," state Congress leader Manas Bhuniya said.
    
The Mukti Yatra, which started on December 1 from West Midnapore district, will culminate in Kolkata on December 13.
    
"During this yatra, we will also inform the masses about the pro-people policies of the Centre, especially the Food Security Act," Bhuniya said.
    
After the recent exodus of Congress leaders to the ruling Trinamool Congress in West Bengal, Rahul Gandhi had asked state Congress president Pradip Bhattacharya to strengthen the party from the grass roots ahead of the next general elections.
