‘Haath Se Haath Jodo’ campaign aims to reach out to people ahead of 2024 general elections: Wani
JKPCC organizes ‘Haath Se Haath Jodo’ yatra in Panchayat Makhanpur Gujran
Jammu: JKPCC President Vikar Rasool Wani, JKPCC Working President Raman Bhalla Saturday led Haath Se Haath Jodo yatra in Makhanpur Gujran Panchayat to highlight the various issues of public concern, especially to oppose property tax, price rise, unemployment and other problems faced by people.
The programme was organized by JKPCC Minority Department Chairman Rajinder Singh Nathu
Speaking on the occasion, JKPCC President said that the ‘Haath Se Haath Jodo’ campaign aims to reach out to people in the hinterlands ahead of the 2024 general elections. “This state-level campaign,” he said, “will strengthen the Congress’ prospects and act as an extension of the Kanyakumari to Kashmir ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ that passed through the politically crucial state recently.”
“The ‘Haath Se Haath Jodo’ campaign is aimed at apprising people at the grassroots level of the failures of the central government, he said. What we mean to say by this is that the Abhiyan is the second phase of the yatra. The BJY went beyond politics and issues were raised on the basis of ideology by Rahul Gandhi. It had nothing to do with elections. But in the Haath Se Haath Jodo Abhiyan, we have a direct target — the failures of the Narendra Modi government,” Wani said.
“The aim of the campaign is to apprise the people of the kind of hatred which is seen in society and the prevailing situation in J&K. We have presented certain facts against the government on issues such as farmer suicides, betrayal of the youth, and how their dreams were shattered by the central and the J&K governments,” he said.
“The anti-people policies of the BJP government at the Centre and in J&K being highlighted by organizing ‘chaupal’ and ‘sabha’ in the villages, he added.’Haath Se Haath Jodo’ recounts the “sweet and sour” experiences of the former Congress Chief during his journey from Kanyakumari to Kashmir, besides flagging unemployment, inflation, and atrocities carried out by the BJP government in the country and J&K,” he added.
Raman Bhalla speaking on the occasion talked about inflation, unemployment, women’s safety, the central government’s handling of China, the rise in hate speeches, the alleged capturing of institutions, and the toppling of elected governments. “After the successful conclusion of the historic Bharat Jodo Yatra, the Haath Se Haath Jodo campaign is set to bring change and highlight the issues concerning people, which are being ignored by the Modi government in order to hide its failures on all fronts.”
“The campaign has already received an overwhelming response like the Bharat Jodo Yatra received given the Congress Party’s constructive role and strenuous efforts to ensure justice for people and bring the country back on the path of prosperity and development,” Bhalla added.
