Rahul Gandhi Addresses Crowds in Barpeta, Initiates 11th Day of Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra in Assam

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi commenced the 11th day of his Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra from Barpeta, Assam on Wednesday. Addressing the gathering from atop his vehicle, Rahul once again criticized the Chief Minister of Assam, branding him as the country’s most corrupt CM. Here are four key points from Rahul’s speech:

Propagation of Hatred by BJP-RSS:

Rahul Gandhi expressed concern over the divisive tactics employed by individuals associated with BJP-RSS. He emphasized their tendency to pit one religion against another and one language against another. While they spread hatred, Rahul advocated for spreading love, citing the interactions with thousands of people during the Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra who conveyed that India is a land of love, not hatred. Rahul attributed the Chief Minister’s animosity not towards him, but to the concealed hatred within him, asserting that only love can eradicate hatred.

BJP-RSS’s Attempt to Influence Assam from Nagpur:

Rahul accused BJP-RSS of seeking to eradicate Assam’s culture, language, and history, aiming to replace it with their own agenda originating from Nagpur. Asserting that Assam would be governed by its own people and its culture respected, he pledged to safeguard the heritage and identity of Assam.

Rahul Gandhi said in Barpeta- Assam CM feels that he can scare me.

Prime Minister’s Absence in Manipur:

Highlighting the BJP-RSS ideology’s impact on Manipur, Rahul pointed out the destruction caused by their philosophy. Despite this, he noted that the Prime Minister has never visited Manipur. He reiterated the journey’s commitment to justice, emphasizing that India is a country built on love, destined to move forward with compassion, leaving no room for violence and hatred.

Himanta’s Attempts to Instill Fear:

Rahul Gandhi accused the Chief Minister of Assam, Himanta Biswa Sarma, of spreading fear and hatred throughout the day. Labelling him as the country’s most corrupt Chief Minister, Rahul criticized the media for projecting the narrative favored by the Assam Chief Minister. Rahul asserted that Assam needs a Chief Minister from Assam, not someone controlled remotely by Amit Shah. Undeterred by the legal cases filed against him, Rahul declared his fearlessness in the face of adversity.
