Viksit Bharat Sankalp Yatra has crossed a major milestone today. In a short span of just 50 days, over 10 crore people have participated in the Yatra. This staggering number indicates profound impact and unmatched ability of the Yatra in uniting people across the nation towards a shared vision of Viksit Bharat.

Incidentally, the number of participants in the Viksit Bharat Sankalp Yatra is higher than the entire population of some of the major countries like Australia, Canada, Germany, France, Italy and South Africa. The massive support for the yatra demonstrates the steadfast dedication of citizens to build a Viksit Bharat.

From Anjaw, Arunachal Pradesh's crown jewel, to Devbhumi Dwaraka on Gujarat's western shore, to scaling Ladakh's icy peaks and gracing Andaman's turquoise shores, the Viksit Bharat Sankalp Yatra now embraces all regions, reaching communities at the farthest corners of the country. The Yatra with the aim to ensure that welfare schemes reach the grassroots level and directly benefit the people has instilled a spark of enthusiasm and hope across India's vastness.
