Police has given information about this matter. Let us tell you that Congress’ Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra passed through a different route instead of its scheduled route. This FIR has been registered regarding this matter. This FIR has been registered in Jorhat police station of Assam.
The journey did not go as planned
A police official said that the yatra was allowed from KB Road side. Instead it took another route into the city, causing a “chaotic situation” in the area. He said that “due to the sudden rush of people, some people fell down and a stampede like situation was created. Taking suo motu cognizance of the incident, an FIR has been registered against the Yatra and its main organizer at Jorhat Sadar police station.” According to the officer, the FIR mentions that the yatra did not follow the rules of the district administration and it violated road safety rules.
Opposition made allegations of obstruction
Opposition leader Debabrata Saikia said that the FIR is a ploy to create unnecessary hurdles in the Yatra. He said, “Police were not deployed at PWD point to divert traffic. The designated route was very short and there was a lot of crowd with us. So, we took the bus to another route for a few metres. Himanta Vishwa Sharma is scared of the success of the yatra (in Assam) on the first day and now wants to derail it.” The Assam leg of the yatra will continue till January 25. This yatra will cover a distance of 833 km in 17 districts. Led by former Congress President Rahul Gandhi, the yatra started from Manipur on January 14 and will end in Mumbai on March 20.
