In an attempt to carry forward the momentum generated by the Bharat Jodo Yatra of former President of Congress party Rahul Gandhi, the party would launch the ‘ Hath se Hath Jodo’ campaign on Republic Day. Informing about the campaign, the national general secretary of the Congress party and the member of the steering committee, Mohan Prakash said that today India is being broken at every level and the resources of the country are being diverted towards a handful of the people. He said that Rahul Gandhi is breaking the hatred, hopelessness, and negativity of the BPJ government and is joining India. Lakhs of people are walking with Gandhi and the Yatra which started from Kanyakumari has now reached Jammu. He said that the party would provide more comprehensiveness to the Bharat Jodo campaign by undertaking another campaign of ‘ Hath Se Hath Jodo’ in the country which would be led by the block committees of the party. Under the campaign, the message of Rahul Gandhi and the chargesheet of failures of the Modi government would be taken to every household in six lakh villages, 2.5 lakh village Panchayats, and ten lakh polling booths. Launching an attack on the Modi government for uncontrolled price rise, the Congress leader said that the prices of cooking gas cylinders, petrol, diesel, edible oil, pulses, wheat flour, and other things have skyrocketed. He said that the prices of crude are continuously falling in the international market but the Modi government is refusing to reduce the prices of petrol and diesel. He said that 60 percent of the country’s wealth is concentrated in the hands of less than five percent of the people. Prakash said that a recent report by the ‘global hunger index’ suggests that India has come to 101st position in the list of 116 countries and our neighbors such as Pakistan, Nepal, and Bangladesh are above us. Citing the report of NSO, the Congress leader said that the per day income of farmers in the country is only Rs 27 per day. “This government promised to double the income of the farmers but it has decreased,’’ he said.
The Pradesh Congress Committee (PCC) president Karan Mahara and others were present on the occasion.
