Picture by Prem SinghNew Delhi: The home minister of the country on Wednesday flagged off a rath yatra from Delhi to collect water and soil from the four holy corners of the country to "build the nation". "This rath yatra is different from other rath yatras. It is to build the nation," home minister Rajnath Singh said as he flagged off the "Jal Mitti Rath Yatra" from India Gate. The yatra is being sponsored by the BJP MP from East Delhi, Mahesh Girri. Against this backdrop, the yatra and the allied events are expected to come in handy as an alternative option to enthuse the BJP's vote banks.
