The five-day padayatra has been cut short to three days due to Karnataka Budget session, which will begin on March 4.

The second phase of Mekedatu padayatra was started by Shivakumar and AICC General Secretary Randeep Surjewala.
The first phase of the padayatra was cancelled due to the third wave of COVID-19.
The padayatra will culminate at National College ground in Bengaluru on March 3.
