1993 -- Janadesh Yatra ( September 11 to September 25)
Led by Advani, four senior BJP leaders undertook a four-pronged yatra that started from different parts of the country and culminated in Bhopal. The objective was to mobilise public opinion against two Bills, the Constitution 80th Amendment Bill and the Representation of People (Amendment) Bill.
The BJP claimed that Narasimha Rao government had introduced them with the dual purpose of banning religion from public life as well as denying political space to the BJP.
The four yatras began, the birth anniversary of Swami Vivekananda, from four corners of the country. Advani himself led the yatra from Mysore; Bhairon Singh Shekhawat from Jammu; Murli Manohar Joshi from Porbandar; and Kalyan Singh from Calcutta.
Travelling through 14 States and two Union Territories, the yatris congregated at Bhopal on September 25 in a massive rally.
