Former Congress President Rahul Gandhi said on Sunday that the country is facing ‘huge injustice’, hence ‘Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra’ is being taken out. Speaking at the launch of the Yatra, he also said that the aim is to present a vision of a future which is full of goodwill, equal participation and brotherhood.
Rahul Gandhi said, “I have been in politics since 2004. For the first time, I went to a state of India, where the entire system has collapsed. What you used to call Manipur no longer exists.” He claimed, “Till date the Prime Minister of the country has not come here to wipe people’s tears or hold hands. Perhaps Manipur is not a part of the country for BJP and RSS.”
Rahul Gandhi said, “The question was raised that where should the journey start from? I clearly said that this journey should start from Manipur only.” He claimed that what happened in Manipur is a symbol of the ‘politics of hate’ of BJP and RSS. He said that monopoly is being established in the country and businesses have been closed on a large scale and there is severe unemployment.
The former Congress president said, “India is facing huge injustice and hence this visit is necessary.” He said sarcastically, “We don’t want to express our feelings, we want to hear your feelings.”
