Bharat Parikrama Yatra by Sitaram Kedilaya will enter Goa from Karwar on Wednesday.

The yatra, which began at Kanyakumari in Tamil Nadu on August 9, passed through Kerala and Karnataka, according to Mr. Kedilaya.

Addressing presspersons here on Monday, he said the main aim of the yatra was raise awareness among the people on the need to protect land, water, cattle, forest and environment.

The yatra also aimed at uniting the people of the country, irrespective of caste, creed and language. The yatra would end after five years at Kanyakumari.

During his yatra, he found that no politician or the government was interested in solving the problems of farmers, he said.

He said farmers in many States faced the threat of acquisition of their fertile land for industrial purpose. This should be stopped. He said the yatra would pass through rural areas of the country. Govarthan Rao, Sundar Lakshman, and S.N. Padiyar were present.
