Bharat Jodo Naya Yatra: Former Congress President Rahul Gandhi’s Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra is in Assam these days. During this, he mentioned the five pillars of justice and explained the ideas behind his journey. He said that his Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra is based on five justices. Rahul Gandhi said that the real issues that people are facing at present are being left behind. He said his Nyay Yatra has five pillars: justice for youth, equal representation, justice for women, justice for farmers and justice for labourers. He said that in the coming days, the Congress Party will organize many programs to strengthen these pillars.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi did a ‘show’
Earlier, Rahul Gandhi said that there is no wave in the name of Ram temple and what happened in Ayodhya on Monday was a political program in which Prime Minister Narendra Modi did a ‘show’. He said that the more efforts are being made to create obstacles in his ‘Bharat Jodo Nyaya Yatra’ in Assam, the more publicity his journey is getting. Rahul Gandhi said that he is not afraid of the threatening steps of Chief Minister Himanta Vishwa Sharma. Asked what plan he had to counter the ‘Ram wave’, the Congress leader said, “There is no such thing as a wave.” This was a political program of BJP. Narendra Modi ji did the function, did the show. That’s all right, it’s a good thing. But we are clear that we have a plan for ‘five justices’ to strengthen the country. We will put this before you.
On the question whether he will go to Ayodhya and visit the Ram temple during the yatra, Rahul Gandhi said that for now he will follow the yatra route. Ayodhya is not included in the yatra route decided by the party. Under the leadership of Prime Minister Modi, the new idol of Ramlala was consecrated in the temple of Ayodhya on Monday. The Prime Minister described the occasion as marking the arrival of a new era and called on people to go beyond temple construction and build the foundation of a strong, grand and divine India for the next 1,000 years.
‘India’ has 60 percent votes of the country
Referring to ‘Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra’, Rahul Gandhi said, “The idea of justice is behind this yatra. It has five pillars of justice – youth justice, participation, women’s justice, farmers’ justice and justice for workers. These five pillars will give strength to the country. Congress will put these before the public in the next one-and-a-half month.” On the question related to the candidature for the post of Prime Minister, the former Congress President said that the opposition alliance ‘India’ will discuss it after the elections and take a decision. He said, “On one side are Narendra Modi and RSS and on the other side is ‘India’. ‘India’ is an ideology, a thought. ‘India’ has 60 percent of the votes in the country.” Taking a dig at the question related to obstruction in travel at some places in Assam, he said, ”Whatever the Chief Minister of Assam is doing, Yatra is benefiting. We are getting the publicity we don’t get. The Chief Minister of Assam and perhaps Amit Shah behind him are helping us in that. Yatra has become the main issue in Assam today.” He stressed, ”We are not afraid of them. Our message is going to every village.
I will continue my fight-Rahul Gandhi
Rahul Gandhi said that he is with the truth and his ideology and even if the world turns aside, he will continue his fight. Emphasizing on increasing the participation of deprived sections in the system, he said, “There are about 50 percent OBCs, 15 percent Dalits and 12 percent tribals in the country, but they do not get participation in the system.” Out of 90 officers of the Government of India, only three officers belong to OBC category. Therefore, participation is very important, Congress will pay special attention to it.” Rahul Gandhi claimed that corruption and unemployment are rampant in Assam and the state is not being run by the Chief Minister but from Delhi. The Congress leader had started ‘Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra’ from Manipur on January 14. These days it is in Assam after passing through many states of the North-East. The yatra will conclude in Mumbai on 20 or 21 March. This journey is mainly taking place through bus, although at many places Rahul Gandhi walks on foot and addresses meetings. (input language)
