Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) chief Sharad Pawar will not join the Congress's Bharat Jodo Yatra on November 11 as he is in the hospital right now, said Congress General Secretary Jairam Ramesh on Thursday.

"NCP chief Sharad Pawar is in hospital, Rahul Gandhi and I talked to him. The doctor has recommended a 3-4-week rest. Hence, Sharad Pawar will not be joining the 'Bharat Jodo Yatra' tomorrow," Jairam Ramesh said.

However, former Maharashtra minister Aaditya Thackeray will join the yatra.

NCP's Jayant Patil, Supriya Sule and Jitendra Awhad have joined today.

The Bharat Jodo Yatra entered its Maharashtra leg on Monday evening.

Rahul Gandhi will travel through 15 Assembly and 6 parliamentary constituencies in five districts of Maharashtra in 15 days and cover a distance of 382 kms.

The yatra has already covered parts of Kerala, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and Telangana.
