Many youth sported Gandhi’s trademark spectacles and dhoti and walked with sticks in the march.

A tableau of Gandhi’s Sabarmati Ashram and his iconic wooden spinning wheel was also part of the march.

The march will conclude with an oath to be administered to workers and leaders by party president Sonia Gandhi at Rajghat.

Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra is likely to participate in a foot march in Lucknow to commemorate the Mahatma’s 150th birth anniversary.
