Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) luminary Tejashwi Prasad Yadav announced the transformation of his ongoing Jan Vishwas Yatra into a grand roadshow spectacle, eschewing traditional public gatherings.

Commencing on February 25 (Sunday) and culminating on February 28, Tejashwi’s revamped itinerary spans a remarkable 1,400km, traversing 19 districts across Bihar.

“Tejashwi will kick off the roadshow leg of his yatra on Sunday morning from Patna. His route will take him across the Ganga, through Hajipur and Mahua in Vaishali district, proceeding to Samastipur, Darbhanga, and Madhubani. The roadshow will extend through the day, with a night’s halt slated at Supaul,” said RJD spokesperson Chitranjan Gagan to The Telegraph.

The former deputy chief minister and RJD torchbearer will embark on a whirlwind journey on Monday, cutting through Supaul, Araria, Kishanganj, Purnia and Bhagalpur districts, concluding the day’s journey at Banka. The subsequent two days will witness Tejashwi’s momentum across Banka, Jamui, Lakhisarai, Munger, Khagaria, Saharsa, Madhepura and Begusarai, before returning to Patna via Mokama, Barh, Bakhtiyarpur and Fatuha.

“Tejashwi’s unprecedented continuous roadshow, spanning such vast distances, marks a pioneering initiative in Bihar’s political landscape. Covering 2,500km in nine days, his outreach aims to connect with communities residing in remote corners, sparking widespread enthusiasm across diverse demographics,” said Gagan.

Tejashwi’s journey commenced on February 20, characterised by a trio of public rallies daily. Having traversed 1,100km by Saturday, he graced a total of 16 public gatherings, drawing crowds brimming with spontaneous fervour.

Insiders suggest the alteration in the tour’s format stems from Tejashwi’s intent to amplify direct engagement with the populace while prioritising their safety, particularly in light of recent stampede-like incidents overshadowing his public rallies.
