“They (BJP) should take out a Jan Mafi Yatra. The public is making fun of them (BJP) because of these yatras (Jan Ashirwad Yatra). Those who should be apologising are seeking blessings today. His (CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan) announcement machine is running at double speed these days because elections are near and now everyone knows about his announcements very well,” Nath said.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will address a meeting to be attended by around one million workers to mark the culmination of all the five yatras in Bhopal on September 25, the birth anniversary of stalwart Deendayal Upadhyaya.
The second and third yatra will start from Khandwa and Neemuch district on September 4 in which Union Defense Minister Rajnath Singh will participate.
Meanwhile, the fourth yatra will start from Mandla on September 5. The yatra will reach Bhopal via Jabalpur which will be inaugurated by Amit Shah.
Moreover, the fifth Yatra will start from Baroda Nagar in Sheopur district on September 6 and will reach Bhopal via Raisen. The party’s national president JP Nadda might inaugurate the yatra.
