Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra: Former Congress President Rahul Gandhi and Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge displayed resilience in the face of alleged attacks by BJP supporters on the ongoing 'Bharat Jodo Nyaya Yatra' in Assam. The leaders addressed a public meeting in Nagaon, condemning the BJP's actions and asserting Congress's fearlessness.

Local Warm Welcome as Yatra Enters Assam

The eighth day of the 'Bharat Jodo Nyaya Yatra' witnessed a warm welcome from locals as it entered Assam from Arunachal Pradesh. Covering approximately 180 kilometres, the yatra passed through Rajgarh, Vishwanath, Sonitpur, and Nagaon. A public meeting in Kaliabor, Nagaon, featured aggressive speeches from Rahul Gandhi and Mallikarjun Kharge.

Congress Challenges BJP's Fear Tactics

Addressing the public meeting, Mallikarjun Kharge accused the BJP of attacking Assam Congress leaders out of nervousness, emphasizing that Congress remains unafraid. Kharge drew historical parallels, stating that if Congress wasn't afraid of the British, it wouldn't fear the BJP. He took a dig at Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma, referring to the cat analogy, and criticized Sarma's recent tweet insulting Dalits.

Kharge's Critique of Sarma's Tweet

Kharge translated Sarma's controversial tweet, where he allegedly stated that Dalits should serve him as he is a Brahmin. Kharge questioned whether Dalits desired servitude, urging them to support Congress if they wished to preserve Dr. Baba Saheb Ambedkar's Constitution and Nehruji's democracy.

Rahul Gandhi's Assertive Stance

Rahul Gandhi addressed the crowd, recounting an incident where BJP workers confronted his bus but fled when he disembarked. He emphasized that tearing Congress posters wouldn't deter the party. Accusing Assam CM Sarma of corruption, Rahul Gandhi highlighted youth unemployment and criticized the Modi government's treatment of aspirants who worked hard to join the army.

Congress Focus on Unity and BJP's Alleged Media Control

Rahul Gandhi positioned Congress as a unifying force, contrasting it with BJP's alleged divisive tactics. He accused BJP of controlling the media narrative, limiting discussions on critical issues like unemployment and inflation. Rahul Gandhi claimed that BJP prioritizes the interests of a few billionaire friends.

Addressing Manipur Violence

Referencing violence in Manipur, Rahul Gandhi criticized the Prime Minister's absence from the troubled state. He suggested that the country's army could swiftly halt violence if ordered by the Prime Minister, insinuating BJP's reluctance to intervene in Manipur.

As 'Bharat Jodo Nyaya Yatra' progresses, Congress leaders remain undeterred by alleged BJP attacks, focusing on their commitment to unity, social justice, and addressing critical issues affecting the people.
