New Delhi: Congress MP from Wayanad, Rahul Gandhi, stating the reason to start Bharat Jodo Yatra slammed Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS). He said that they had degraded the country’s atmosphere by spreading hate, doing violence, casteism, and racism.
He made these remarks while addressing a rally in Punjab’s Sirhind. Bharat Jodo Yatra today entered Punjab.
Addressing the rally Rahul Gandhi said, “The BJP and RSS people are dividing the country, putting one religion against the other, one caste against the other, one language against the other. We thought the nation must be shown a different path of love, unity, and brotherhood, and this is why we started this yatra.”
He stated that BJP people are spreading hate, creating fear in people, and doing violence. This is not our country’s way. He said, “There is a reason for this — the hatred, fear, and violence being spread by the BJP people, it is not the country’s way and not its history. This country is of brotherhood, unity, and respect. And this is why this yatra is successful.”
On Wednesday, the Congress carried on with their yatra from Fatehgarh Sahib’s Sirhind in Punjab. Mandi Gobindgarh, Khanna, Sahnewal, Ludhiana, Goraya, Phagwara, Jalandhar, Dasyua, and Mukerian are among the cities it will travel through. Before the march enters Jammu and Kashmir and ends in Srinagar, on January 19, a rally will be held in Pathankot.
Rahul Gandhi will be walking for three hours each in the morning and evening. He will be covering a distance of 25 kilometers a day.
The Bharat Jodo Yatra of the Congress party started on September 7 in Kanyakumari, Tamil Nadu, and will end on January 30 in Srinagar. So far the Yatra walked in Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Rajasthan, Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, and Haryana.
