Bharat Jodo Yatra gaining momentum: Manipur Cong

Correspondent

Rahul Gandhi’s Bharat Jodo Yatra has received unexpected massive support from the people and different political partie, said AICC’s CWC member and former Manipur deputy chief minister G Gaikhangam on Monday.
The senior state Congress leader asserted that even though India gained its independence a long time back, the people were losing their freedom bit by bit.
He was responding to queries from the reporters on the ongoing Bharat Jodo Yatra of Rahul Gandhi that has covered over 1,400km so far on the sideline of observance of the 147th birth anniversary of Sardar Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel and the 38th death anniversary of former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi at Imphal Congress Bhavan.
He said people and other political parties have realized that the march was not in the party interest but to preserve the constitutional culture and to make a new India, free from BJP’s farcical government.
“The yatra has the potential to transform Indian politics,” he claimed.
Democracy is at stake and constitutional bodies were weakened in the country under the NDA rule. Rahul Gandhi launched the movement to unite the country against the “divisive politics” policy of the incumbent government at the Centre. The main objective of the march was to educate the people on the tyranny of the BJP rule, to fight against its suppressive regime and destruction of the economics of livelihood, increasing unemployment and growing inequalities, he said.
Earlier, due to the false propaganda of the BJP, certain sections of people used to mock Rahul Gandhi and its long-march.
However, after knowing the truth not only common people but different political parties have also joined the walkathon, he claimed. The march has generated curiosity even among the BJP leaders as it has attracted thousands across age groups, castes, religions and economic strata,” he said.
“I am sure, this yatra will give a huge impact to the upcoming Lok Sabha elections 2024,” he said.
MPCC observed the 147th birth anniversary of Sardar Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel along with the 38th death anniversary of former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi at Imphal Congress Bhavan on Monday.
Former chief minister O Ibobi Singh led the members and workers of the MPCC in paying floral tribute to the two great leaders of the country.
