Advani's rath yatra: 38 days, 46 places, 14 flights The name rath yatra may give you the impression that L K Advani is going to undertake an all-land march. Until you learn about the list of flights the Bharatiya Janata Party veteran would use as part of his nation-wide trip against corruption starting next week. The endeavour, demanding good governance, will see Advani boarding 14 special aircraft and six helicopters. After all, the 83-year-old leader has to visit a total of 46 places across the country in 38 days -- with breaks for Diwali and his birthday on November 8. For Advani's 7,600-km yatra, his party leadership has decided to make use of air transport in a big way, so the former deputy prime minister can cover 23 states and four Union territories before the mission ends in Delhi on November 20. The yatra will start from Bihar's Sitabdiara, the birthplace of Jayaprakash Narayan, on October 11, the birth anniversary of the late leader.
