Rahul Gandhi at Red Fort: BJP spreading Hindu-Muslim hatred to divert attention | Latest News India


Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Saturday hit out at the Narendra Modi government after the ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ reached New Delhi’s iconic Red Fort.

“It is not Narendra Modi’s government. Ambani and Adani is the govt. Hindu-Muslims are doing it to divert attention from the real problems. Today young graduates are selling ‘pakora’,” Rahul Gandhi said at a rally.

“So far I have walked 2,800 km. During my journey, I did not see any hatred… But BJP is busy spreading Hindu-Muslim hatred 24×7,” Gandhi said as Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge, veteran actor Kamal Hassan and other party leaders joined him at the Red Fort.

After appearing on television channels, Gandhi said: “I have not seen any violence, no hatred in the country for hundreds of kilometers. But I see it on television all the time.”

The yatra halted near the Red Fort in the evening. Kamal Hassan was the latest celebrity to join Gandhi’s Bharat Jodo Yatra.

Gandhi also alleged that Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the BJP spent billions to “destroy my image, but I showed the truth to the country in just one month”.

“As per my request, you have opened many shops to spread love in the country,” Gandhi told Congress supporters.

The Gandhi family walked together in the morning yatra with former party president Sonia Gandhi, her daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren joining Gandhi in the march.

Gandhi and his family members walked with Rahul Gandhi for a short distance until the yatra stopped for a morning break at Delhi’s Ashram Chowk.

This is the second time that Sonia Gandhi, who is also the president of the Congress Parliamentary Party, has joined the yatra that started from Kanyakumari in September. It was held in Mandya, Karnataka, which he had earlier participated in in October.

This is the first time that the entire family is going on a Bharat Jodo Yatra.

Wearing a mask, Sonia Gandhi walked with Rahul Gandhi, Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, Robert Vadra and her grandchildren and waved goodbye to the waiting public along the streets to see the family.

“The love I received from her, I share the same with the country,” Rahul Gandhi tweeted in Hindi with a picture of a warm hug with his mother.

Congress also shared the same photo.

The Yatra entered Delhi from Haryana on Saturday morning and was given a warm welcome at the Badarpur border by party leaders and workers.

Traffic snarls were reported from parts of Delhi as the march passed through the national capital. The yatra will halt near the Red Fort in the evening.
