Actor Kamal Haasan joins the Bharat Jodo Yatra Delhi Yatra
Speaking to party members and leaders during the Bharat Jodo Yatra, Rahul Gandhi reaffirmed that the goal of his yatra is to establish a “mohabbat ki dukaan” (shop of love) amidst a “nafrat ka bazaar” that already exists.
As Rahul Gandhi marched across Delhi today amid requests from the Health Minister to observe Covid procedures, thousands of people joined the Congress’ Bharat Jodo Yatra. The Gandhis yatra in Delhi was also joined today by actor-turned-politician Kamal Haasan.
Along with Mr. Gandhi, several party leaders were spotted marching, including Jairam Ramesh, Pawan Khera, Bhupinder Singh Hooda, Kumari Selja, and Randeep Surjewala.
Later, Priyanka Gandhi and Sonia Gandhi, the former president of the Congress, joined Rahul. Sonia Gandhi is taking part in the yatra for the second time. She had joined the massive foot march organised by the Congress in Karnataka in October.
The Delhi Congress chief Anil Chaudhary greeted Mr. Gandhi, other party leaders, and the yatris at the Badarpur Border amid “Rahul Zindabad” cries as the Bharat Jodo Yatra arrived in the capital from Faridabad early this morning.
Rahul Gandhi stated again that the purpose of his yatra is to build a “mohabbat ki dukaan” (shop of love) amidst a “nafrat ka bazaar” (market of hatred).
“Now, love is a topic on which the average man in the nation speaks. Millions have joined the yatra in every state. We are here to open a shop of love in your “bazar” of hatred, I have told the RSS and BJP members “Speaking, Mr. Gandhi
The Yatra, according to Mr. Gandhi, aims to show off the “true Hindustan” in which people are helpful to one another. “We (Congress) spread love, they (BJP, RSS) disseminate hatred,” he declared.
Rahul Gandhi was previously issued a letter by Health Minister Mansukh Mandaviya requesting that he make sure that Covid “protocols” are observed during the Bharat Jodo Yatra.
PM Narendra Modi’s recent election campaign in Gujarat and the BJP’s “Jan Aakrosh Yatra” in Rajasthan were mentioned by Mr. Gandhi in his response. “In many states, the BJP is organising yatras. The health minister, however, is merely writing to us “he stated.
The BJP is allegedly afraid of the support the Bharat Jodo Yatra has acquired and the Congress has claimed that it wants to disrupt Mr. Gandhi’s yatra.
At Red Fort, the yatra will come to an end this evening. The Congress mega-march, which reached its 100-day milestone on December 16, will take a nine-day vacation over the holiday season and resume on January 3 from Delhi.
In a traffic advisory, the Delhi Police advises commuters to avoid specific routes and “make full use” of public transportation. The advice states that traffic from Badarpur to Red Fort is anticipated to remain heavy.
The advisory stated: “There will be graded and dynamic diversion to guarantee smooth traffic management and facilitate commuters while ensuring pedestrian safety on roads.”
