Challenges Faced During the Bharat Jodo Yatra
Addressing a gathering in front of the Red Fort, Rahul Gandhi said, “When we started this journey, I was thinking that there is a need to eradicate hatred. It was in my mind that hatred is spread everywhere in this country. But when I started walking, the reality was completely different…only Hindu-Muslim, Hindu-Muslim is played on television channels all the time.”
He claimed that attention was diverted by spreading hatred and that airports, ports, roads and the country’s assets were being handed over to the “owners of the Prime Minister”. He said, “When someone pickpockets, he first sees that the attention of the person being pickpocketed should be diverted. This is what is happening in the country that people’s pockets are being cut by diverting attention.
The Impact of the Yatra on Local Communities
Rahul Gandhi said demonetisation and ‘wrong GST’ were not a policy decision, but a weapon to kill farmers and small traders. He claimed, “Just as the press is under control, similarly the Prime Minister of the country is under control. He can’t handle it.” He claimed, “This is not Modi’s government, it is Adani-Ambani’s government.”
Celebrating the Cultural Diversity of India During the Bharat Jodo Yatra
The former Congress president also targeted the Prime Minister over the tension with China on the border. He said, “China grabbed two thousand square kilometers of our land. The Prime Minister says that no one came inside. If no one came then why did our army talk with their army 21 times? Congress general secretary Jairam Ramesh said, “It has been 108 days since the yatra. From today onwards, there will be rest till January 2 so that the container can be repaired. After this the yatra will resume on January 3.
