Hyderabad: On Wednesday, senior Congress leader Rahul Gandhi lauded the Bharat Jodi Yatra, saying it was an efficient move to fight the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
Gandhi said it was “a political action against the BJP and the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) who are harming the country by spreading hatred and violence.”
Attacking the saffron party along with its ally RSS, Gandhi said the aim of the mega rally was to stop the “anti-national activities” being carried out by the two.
The Congress leader said that the BJP has a feeling of hatred at the superficial level. However, if you scratch it, you will see fear. He said once the Congress starts “facing the fear” the BJP will fall.
