The Punjab tour of Rahul Gandhi-led Bharat Jodo Yatra has come to an end. Surely this visit was very influential in Punjab. The Congress claims that the Bharat Jodo Yatra is non-political. Rahul Gandhi’s visit and factionalism;But at least in Punjab politics was seen around it. After the defeat in the assembly elections, the party was on the backfoot and some of the veteran leaders left the party and joined the BJP.
Among those who parted ways just before the elections were former Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh and some of his senior Congress colleagues. Sunil Kumar Jakhar, who was the state president, also went to the BJP after accusing the Congress of neglecting Hindus and giving preference to learned people. The post-poll turmoil had left the state unit in limbo.
are not far. Entire Punjab is gripped by suicide and drug addiction. Rahul Gandhi should have definitely visited the houses which are becoming permanently vacant due to this. The government does not go! The victims definitely had this hope for the purpose of Bharat Jodo Yatra, but Rahul Gandhi did not pay further attention to it.
The new city of Malwa
is the jail where Jawaharlal Nehru was imprisoned for a day by the British rulers when he came to Punjab to participate in the historic ‘Jaito Morcha’ during the freedom movement. The first prime minister, Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, was the stalwart of the Rahul Gandhi family and the father of his grandmother, Mrs. Gandhi. That prison of Nabha and the front of Jaito hold an important place in history.
These places were also waiting for Rahul Gandhi from other side. It was said in the beginning of Bharat Jodo Yatra that it is a journey to understand and communicate with the country beyond politics. But on the last day of the Punjab visit, Rahul Gandhi made comments on the Bhagwant Mann government and the Aam Aadmi Party. Is this not a political color on the yatra?
However, Rahul Gandhi’s visit and factionalism; in Punjab earlier too, foot marches and ‘rath yatras’ have been taking place. But no one has achieved so much buzz and success before. The time to come will tell very well what Rahul Gandhi got from Punjab and what Punjab got from Rahul Gandhi?
History has its own cycle,Rahul Gandhi’s visit and factionalism; its own reality and fundamental truth. Which does not come immediately but later. Certainly, Bharat Jodo Yatra and Rahul Gandhi, who is leading it, will also know about the full results later. At the moment, he has definitely got the answer, who used to say in advertising language before the yatra that stones will not be showered on Rahul, but only flowers will be showered on Rahul Gandhi walking on the roads of this border state. Stones were not pelted by anyone. Despite provocations and conspiracies!
