New Delhi, May 13 (UNI) Bharatiya Janashakti Party leader Uma Bharti today began her 'Bharat Bachao Padayatra' from the famous religious shrine of 'Rameshwaram' in southern coast to Kedarnath in Himalayas to highlight the dangers of foreign economic power and leadership to India.

Ms Bharti, who started her 2,500-km yatra on the auspicious occasion of Buddha Purnima after performing pooja at the 'Rameshwaram' temple, said she would be using a vehicle during the Padayatra.

Later addressing people at Dhanushkoti, she sought support of all political parties, social and religious workers to join her to awaken the nation over the conspiracy hatched by the foreign powers against India and its economy. ''They have already started tightening their grip over the economy,'' Ms Bharti added.

She said the Sethusamudram project undertaken by the previous NDA government was absolutely safe from all aspects including environment. However, the UPA government had virtually put it in the ''cold storage'' by the forces undermining the national interests.

Meanwhile, Ms Bharti disclosed that party meetings to finalise its constitution and announcement of committees in various states would be made during the 'yatra'.
