Rahul said in a written statement that the Bharat Jodo Yatra has lasted for 12 days on the land of Madhya Pradesh.


Just before the 'Bharat Jodo Yatra' entered neighboring Rajasthan from Madhya Pradesh on Sunday evening, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi said the yatra would be organized "irrespective of morning chill and potholed roads" in BJP-ruled Madhya Pradesh. There was tremendous support from the people.

The 'Bharat Jodo Yatra' led by Rahul entered Rajasthan on Sunday evening from Agar Malwa district after completing its 12-day route in Madhya Pradesh.

During this yatra covered a distance of 380 kilometers in the state.

Rahul said in a written statement that the Bharat Jodo Yatra has lasted for 12 days on the land of Madhya Pradesh.

In the statement, he said, "We have passed through Agar Malwa after entering the state from Burhanpur district.

During this we crossed the mountains of Satpura and Vindhya, Tapti and Narmada rivers.

Passed through farms, villages and cities.

He said, "And most importantly, at every step of the journey, we got tremendous support from the people of Madhya Pradesh."

Taking a jibe at the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led government in Madhya Pradesh, Rahul further said, "Lakhs of people from every section of the society - youth, women, farmers, laborers - irrespective of the morning cold and potholed roads." Walk with us step by step.

He said, "The crowd cheering on the streets of Burhanpur and Indore in Madhya Pradesh and the lakhs of people who came to attend the public meeting in Ujjain will always remain in our memories."

We are grateful to the people of Madhya Pradesh for their affection and enthusiastic participation in the yatra.

Taking a dig at the Madhya Pradesh government, the Congress leader said that like other states, farmers here are also struggling to make ends meet due to rising input costs, declining income, uncertain prices, power problems and insensitive policies of the government. .

Rahul said, "The youth of Madhya Pradesh are losing hope of a better future despite hard work and sacrifice.

Educated unemployed youth are protesting, medical students are on strike, government recruitment has stopped and corruption is at its peak.

He alleged that the voice of the protesting youth is being suppressed.

Targeting the Centre, Rahul said, "Small businessmen, who are the backbone of our country's prosperity, are yet to recover from the brunt of the stupidly designed and implemented Goods and Services Tax (GST), Corona mismanagement and demonetisation." Huh.''

He said that Adivasis, who are the original inhabitants of our country, are struggling because of the continuous dilution of laws that guarantee their rights.

Alluding to the fall of the Kamal Nath-led Congress government on March 23, 2020, following the resignation of 22 party MLAs led by Union minister Jyotiraditya Scindia, Rahul said, "The people of Madhya Pradesh have decided to solve these challenges." The trust reposed in the Congress was betrayed.

Just like the constitutional values ​​are being attacked across the country.

He said, "On November 26, at Mhow, the birthplace of Babasaheb Ambedkar, we took a pledge to protect the Constitution." The Congress leader further said, "I repeat that pledge and promise to the people of Madhya Pradesh. That a day will soon come when we will live up to the trust you had reposed in the Congress.

Rahul said that during the visit to Madhya Pradesh, one also experienced the cultures that make the state a reflection of India's rich diversity.

He said, "We received the blessings of the Jyotirlingas of Shri Omkareshwar and Shri Mahakaleshwar as well as Shri Mahavir Tapobhoomi."

The former Congress president said, "paid a humble tribute to the contribution of Tantya Bhil and Babasaheb Ambedkar.

We walked listening to traditional tales of Madhya Pradesh and Malvi Kabir Bhajans.

This yatra entered Rajasthan from Agar Malwa district of Madhya Pradesh at around 6.40 pm by crossing the bridge over Chanwali river.

The Yatra entered Madhya Pradesh on 23 November.

Today is the 88th day of 'Bharat Jodo Yatra' which started on September 7 from Kanyakumari in Tamil Nadu.
