Madhya Pradesh: Congress to begin ‘Ram Van Gaman Path Yatra’

Bhopal | After the successful ‘Soft Hindutva’ plan in the Assembly election of Gujarat and Karnataka, the Congress party is again planning to move on the same footsteps but this time on the steps on Lord Rama.

The Madhya Pradesh Congress is organising a ‘Ram Van Gaman Path Yatra’ at the end of September following the route taken by Lord Rama on his way to the 14-year exile. The journey will begin from Chitrakoot from September 21 and end on October 9 covering about 35 assembly elections.

Speaking about the ‘Ram Van Gaman Path Yatra’ Congress Spokesperson Sobha Oza said, “For the Congress, religious sentiments are very personal. We have never politicised such issues”. Attacking the BJP government the Congress leader said, “For the Ram Path Gaman, the BJP government has promised the track 12 years ago, but everything is on paper.” She further added that “Nothing has materialised and we wish to bring Madhya Pradesh on the map of the country as far as religious tourism is concerned.”

Responding to the Yatra, the ruling BJP government has called it a low stunt before the assembly elections. BJP spokesperson Rahul Kothari said, “They should support Ram Mandir. It is just a political stunt. They are remembering ahead of elections to woo voters in a Hindu-majority state.”

Assembly election is likely to be held in the state of Madhya Pradesh along with Rajasthan and Chhatisgarh at year end and Congress wants to utilise every possible option. Earlier Madhya Pradesh Congress President Kamal Nath said the party would build cow shelters in every panchayat of the state if elected to power.
