Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra: In a resolute address during the twenty-ninth day of the Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra in Raigarh, Chhattisgarh, senior Congress leader Rahul Gandhi reaffirmed India's fundamental essence as that of love, emphasizing that the nation's core identity is rooted in love, not hatred. Gandhi attributed the proliferation of hate and violence in the country to underlying injustice perpetuated by entities such as the RSS and the BJP.

Nyay Yatra: Pursuing Justice for All

Addressing a gathering, Gandhi articulated that the primary objective of the 'Nyay Yatra' is to advocate for justice across all segments of society, ensuring social and economic equity for every individual.

During his discourse, Gandhi engaged with a group of children, inquiring about their aspirations. Responding fervently, a young girl expressed her love for India and her desire to see the nation free from hate and violence. Gandhi underscored that those who propagate violence and hatred cannot genuinely love India.

Injustice Under BJP Rule

Gandhi delved into a detailed exposition of the injustices perpetuated during the BJP and Modi's tenure, particularly highlighting social and economic disparities. He lamented the Agnipath scheme, deeming it unjust for not recognizing soldiers as martyrs and for curbing their service tenure. Furthermore, he criticised the government's favouritism towards the affluent, exemplified by the transfer of defence production to PM Modi's ally, Adani.

Advocacy for Social Justice

Advocating for social justice, Gandhi reiterated the necessity for a caste census, asserting its role in rectifying historical marginalization of Dalits, OBCs, and Adivasis. He decried the lack of representation of these communities in corporate sectors, stressing the imperative for their inclusion.

Empowerment of Local Entrepreneurship

Gandhi championed the cause of local entrepreneurship, questioning the dependency on foreign imports such as mobile phones from China. He criticised the Modi government's neglect of small and medium enterprises, highlighting the disparity in access to loans between grassroots entrepreneurs and industrial tycoons like Adani.

In his steadfast commitment to the welfare of the people, Gandhi vowed to continue advocating for justice and equality, undeterred by adversities or political reprisals, asserting that his true abode lies in the hearts of the people.
