Tamil Nadu Congress Committee president K.S. Alagiri said Mr. Stalin will kickstart the rally before a massive public meeting in Kanniyakumari. Mr. Stalin will hand over the Indian flag to Mr. Gandhi at the Mahatma Gandhi Statue to launch the rally. However, the Chief Minister will not be participating in the public meeting, he said.

Leaders of parties in the Secular Progressive Alliance will take part in the rally on different days, Mr. Alagiri said.

“Today, the Constitution is under attack. To unite the people, we have to save the Constitution,” he said, adding that the message will be taken to the citizens of Tamil Nadu from September 11 to December 28.
