What impact is the Bharat Jodo Yatra making on the minds of the people of India has become a most asked question. Certainly the long march led by Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has brought his party to life but he isn’t thinking of the results.
“Rahul Gandhi is on your mind. It’s not on mine, understand. Try and understand” said the former president of the Congress party in response to a question on Tuesday.
The Congress leader called his campaign a “tapasya” a penance. “Bharat Jodo Yatra is not for power but it is to stand up for the idea of India. Idea of Inia which is being damaged and destroyed by the RSS-BJP”, Rahul Gandhi added.
Earlier the Congress leader skipped the question, when he was asked about the leaders resigning from his party. “Ask these questions to the president of the Congress party (Mallikarjun Kharge). Ask the leadership of the Madhya Pradesh Congress Committee”, Rahul Gandhi had said.
Rahul Gandhi also attacked the Prime Minister Modi calling him a supporter of two corporate houses. No one wish returns from a tapasya, but the “two people” worship Modi all day and receive whatever they desire”, said the Congress Party leader.
“Whatever they want, railways, airports, ports, roads, electricity, everything is being made available to them,” said the Member of Parliament from Wayanad (Kerela). Obviously, he was referring to Mukesh Ambani, and Gautam Adani, the two business tycoons.
When a journalist asked Rahul Gandhi to describe what perspective he was gaining from the people of India during the Bharat Jodo Yatra, he replied,
What do you understand? This is the philosophy of your country. Understand it, it will be good for you. “It has taught me immense patience. Earlier I used to get irritated for one or two hours. Now I remain patient up to eight hours,” said Rahul Gandhi in response to another question.
