Congress' Bharat Jodo Yatra to be opposed by BJP citing corruption, dynastic rule

Congress Bharat Jodo Yatra to be opposed by BJP citing corruption, dynastic rule

New Delhi: The 'Bharat Jodo Yatra', a national protest against the BJP-led Central government's policies, would be launched soon by the Congress.

For the first time in the last eight years, Congress will undertake a national campaign to confront the Modi administration on a significant scale, and the campaign will involve many seasoned Congress leaders. However, during this Yatra, just the Tricolor will be used, not the Congress flag.

Starting from Kanyakumari in Tamil Nadu on September 7, the Congress' 'Bharat Jodo Yatra' will travel across 12 states and conclude in Jammu and Kashmir. This journey of nearly 3,500 km between Kanyakumari to Kashmir will last for 150 days, i.e., five months.

Through this yatra, Rahul Gandhi and other Congress leaders will be seen targeting the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, criticizing the BJP government and their main political target will be Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his government.

The manner in which the Congress has invited the people from the civil society for this yatra as well as the general public, it is clearly visible that in the coming days, there may be bitter political attacks and counter-attacks between the Congress and the BJP.

The BJP has two big weapons -- corruption and dynasty rule -- to politically surround the Congress and its high command, i.e., the Gandhi family. The BJP may try to attack Congress on many other issues, but the basis of all of them remains these two core issues. However, by raising these two issues repeatedly, the BJP has also raised its voice against many other regional parties as well.

It is clear that the more the Congress campaigns against the Central government, the more it will have to answer the BJP's allegations of corruption and dynasty rule, and the BJP on Saturday through its party spokesperson Sambit Patra cornered the Congress.

On Saturday, right from attacking Jawaharlal Nehru to the issue of the National Herald scam, Patra while taking a dig at the Congress's 'Bharat Jodo Yatra', called it 'Bharat Todo Yatra' and said that only those who can stop corruption can unite the country and it is ironical that the Congress cannot leave corruption, so it cannot even unite India.

Reminding the Congress that Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi were out on bail in the National Herald scam, Patra also said that this is not 'Bharat Jodo Andolan' but 'Gandhi Parivar Bachao Andolan'.

Quoting the biography of former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Chandra Bhanu Gupta, to target the Congress on Saturday, the BJP even alleged that the National Herald case is not new, IANS reported.

Corruption has been going on in the National Herald newspaper since the time of the first Prime Minister of the country, Jawaharlal Nehru and since that time the Congress has been wrongly transferring its funds to this newspaper whose sole purpose is to glorify the Nehru-Gandhi family and campaign against their political opponents.

The BJP's political charge is that the opposition parties have every right to protest or oppose the government but first Rahul Gandhi must come forward and answer the allegations of corruption.

It is clearly visible from BJP's political pitch that in the coming days its veteran party leaders, spokespersons and even Union ministers will be seen cornering the Gandhi family from different forums and will also demand answers from them on many issues like the National Herald scam.
