Kohima: Moving on pressurising the Government to do away with the caste system prevailing in the country, the 40-day-long Bharat Yathra, led by lawyer and social activist KK Sarachandra Bose, arrived here on Friday covering the 21 state capitals.
The Yathra, flagged off from Thiruvananthapuram on June 9, has been receiving an enthusiastic response from all sections of the society, Bose said while addressing media conference here.
Dubai-based Bose, who hails from central Travancore in Kerala, informed that he has urged the Centre to eradicate the caste system by the end of this year.
The notice is in the form of his 208-page book brought out in November 2013 entitled "Caste Away! India, Hinduism and Untouchability".
