New Delhi. Bharat Jodo Yatra of Congress has concluded in Srinagar. At the end of the Bharat Jodo Yatra, the hopes of the Congress regarding opposition unity got a jolt here. The Congress was expecting a long queue of opposition leaders during the conclusion of the yatra. But on Monday the party got disappointed. The party had invited around 23 parties to participate in the closing programme, but only 8 parties took part in the event.
According to the Indian Express report, Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge had invited heads of 23 political parties to attend the closing ceremony. But only a few leaders participated in the program in Srinagar. The Congress expected that the parties that have been invited would send their representatives to the function to be held at the Sher-e-Kashmir Cricket Stadium in Srinagar, but this did not happen.
Bihar’s parties disappeared
Senior Congress leader Jairam Ramesh had earlier said that you will see him in Srinagar on the 30th. Here in the meeting, after the end of Bharat Jodo Yatra, the next step to be taken in the context of 2024 elections will be discussed. Apart from this statement of Jairam Ramesh, something else was seen in Srinagar. The absence of two political parties of Bihar from the Bharat Jodo Yatra under the leadership of Rahul Gandhi remained a matter of discussion. In Bihar, both the ruling Janata Dal United (JDU) and the Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) did not reach Srinagar. Its leaders also did not participate in this yatra. The special thing is that JDU and RJD are with Congress in the grand alliance government in Bihar.
