Congress’s Rahul Gandhi led his Bharat Jodo Yatra into Jammu and Kashmir right now, underscoring that it was a “homecoming” for him. “I am going back to my roots, I know the suffering of the people of Jammu and Kashmir and come to you with a bowed head,” he stated, addressing the individuals.
“I am here to learn from you. Each one of you have suffered a lot and I want to humbly say that I am here to share your grief,” he stated.
Drawing a parallel between the Bharat Jodo Yatra and the one undertaken by Vedic scholar Shankaracharya within the eighth Century, Mr Gandhi stated in course of it, he discovered that although BJP and RSS have unfold hatred, it “does not” run deep.
“I earlier thought it ran deep but it does not and is mainly seen on television,” Mr Gandhi added.
The Yatra was given a grand welcome at Madopur, with a cultural programme that included music and dance.
National Conference chief Farooq Abdullah was on the spot to obtain Mr Gandhi. The 85-year-old struck an emotive word, saying, “Before I close my eyes, I want to see my secular Hindustan again where everyone is respected.”
There have been quite a lot of senior leaders from Congress, allies and regional events, who’re anticipated to attend the Yatra’s grand finale in Srinagar on January 30, the dying anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi.
Besides Mr Abdullah, Congress’s Jairam Ramesh, Ashok Gehlot, Digvijay Singh, have been there. So have been Shiv Sena’s Sanjay Raut, Dogra Swabhiman Sangathan Party and Awami National Conference chief Muzaffar Shah. The Congress has invited 21 opposition events to attend the programme on January 30.
Jammu and Kashmir is the final leg of the yatra, which began 125 days in the past in September from Kanyakumari.
