NEW DELHI: The Congress took a dig on Friday at Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to four southern states, saying the impact of the opposition party’s Bharat Jodo Yatra is already being felt, but no antics can match the connection established with people by walking with and listening to them.

Modi is on a two-day visit to the southern states of Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana from Friday, during which he would attend several events and launch development initiatives.

Taking a dig at his visit, Congress general secretary in charge of communications Jairam Ramesh said the impact of the Bharat Jodo Yatra, the foot march taken out by the party from Kanniyakumari to Kashmir, is already being felt.
