Wani, Bhalla, others join Bharat Jodo Yatra in Rajasthan
Srinagar: JKPCC President Vikar Rasool Wani, JKPCC Working President Raman Bhalla, Manmohan Singh, Rajnish Sharma Mian, Pranav Shagotra, Pankaj Dogra, Jahanzaib Sirwal, Vinay Gupta, Arshid Ahmed Tantrey and others today reached Jaipur to join Bharat Jodo Yatra.
JKPCC Chief after becoming part of Yatra in Rajasthan along with Raman Bhalla and others said that yatra is not only attracting the attention of the country but the whole world. It is a big message for those countries where there is a democracy,” he said.
The Bharat Jodo Yatra, which has touched five states so far, is not just an attempt by the Congress to connect with people and preserve the constitutional culture but has the potential to transform Indian politics, he said.
Wani criticized the BJP which has so far responded to the Yatra merely with defamatory allegations that have been easy to prove false, innuendos, and ridicule, ignoring the issues of high prices, joblessness, and divisive politics that it has raised. “But the programme, which has attracted thousands across age groups, castes, religions, and economic strata, has generated curiosity and hope in civil society and prompted some to shed their negative opinion about Rahul Gandhi,” he said.
“There seems a consensus that the real-life issues flagged by the Yatra have found resonance among the people, and the walkathon has become a subject of discussion countrywide.”
He said that Congress has its feet on the ground. It is not just a routine padyatra. “The political context defined by division, hate, and inequalities make this a strong ideological counter to the RSS-BJP.” “Its success so far has shown that there is still space in the country for an inclusive politics that the Congress represents and can tap into,” added Wani.
