Rahul Gandhi’s Bharat Jodo Yatra enters Madhya Pradesh | Indore News

BURHANPUR: Former AICC chief Rahul Gandhi-led ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra‘ on Wednesday morning started 370 kilometer and 12 days long Madhya Pradesh leg of ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ as around 10,000 party workers and people gathered in Burhanpur district’s Bodarli village to welcome and accompany him.
Gandhi, who around 6am crossed Madhya Pradesh – Maharashtra border from Karoli – Jalgaon Jamod village, travelled around 30 kilometer in his carcade to reach Bodarli bus stand.
In his presence, Maharashtra Congress Committee’s president Nana Patole handed over the tricolor (which the Yatra is taking to finally hoist in Srinagar on January 26) to MPCC president Kamal Nath.
“Thanks to all for this lovely welcome” Gandhi said, while starting his maiden speech of the Yatra’s MP leg, adding that he has given ‘A+ grade’ to Maharashtra Congress Committee to ensure that the cross-country march passed through well in the Marathi speaking state that sent a very good message across the country.
According to Gandhi, he took up ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ from Kanyakumari (Tamil Nadu) to Srinagar (J&K) as a challenge after people of political parties (other than Congress) claimed that this around 3,600 kilometer-long cross-country march can’t be completed on foot.
“Today, we have reached Madhya Pradesh and will complete its 370 kilometer journey in the state” he said.
He added that the Yatra is against hatred, fear and violence being spread in Hindustan.
“BJP first spreads fear among youths, farmers and labourers respectively through unemployment, not giving right price of crops, insurance amount (on loss of insured crops) and not waiving agri-loans and not implementing MGNREGA” he alleged, adding that BJP then ‘converts’ this fear spread among people to violence.
“Violence is nothing but a form of fear. Only people in fear resort to violence,” he said, adding that his first goal is to remove this fear from heart of the people. “This is Hindustan. Here, nobody needs to fear,” he said.
While talking to a 5-year-old child Rudra from the crowd, Gandhi asked him about his dream. “This child wants to become a doctor,” he said, further alleging that the same is however not possible in ‘present’ Hindustan as he would need crores of rupees to fulfill his dream due to ‘privatization’ of all the educational institutes.
“There are three-four billionaires, who have the power to realize their dreams,” he said.
Gandhi said that his Yatra is also meant to raise the issue of unemployment and inflation.
Taking a dig at BJP without naming PM Narendra Modi, Gandhi said that in the Yatra, he doesn’t say his ‘Mann Ki Baat’ but listens to ‘Mann Ki Baat’ of people further to raise the issues concerning them.
