Congress leader rahul Gandhi, during his Bharat Jodo Nyay yatra, criticized the government, stating that it only caters to a select few, leading to economic injustice. Starting his journey from Manipur and traversing through Bihar, Jharkhand, and Odisha, rahul Gandhi reached Chhattisgarh, where he voiced concerns over the impact of demonetization and GST on small traders.
He alleged that these decisions favoured a handful of individuals across various sectors, leaving the majority suppressed by inflation. rahul emphasized that the entire system seems to be working for a privileged few in power, spanning industries like defence, health, retail, and airports. Addressing the issue of social justice, rahul Gandhi highlighted the underrepresentation of Dalits and backward classes in various sectors, despite constituting a significant portion of the population.
He asserted that the hard-earned money of these groups is benefiting capitalist companies, while the promised benefits of a Hindu Rashtra by the bjp do not reach the marginalized communities. rahul criticized the absence of poor labourers and farmers during the ram temple inauguration, citing it as an example of the government's neglect of the less privileged.
The Bharat Jodo Nyay yatra, initiated by congress in preparation for the upcoming lok sabha elections, aims to advocate for justice for the people. While the previous yatra spanned from Kanyakumari to Kashmir, this time it commenced from Manipur, culminating in mumbai in March. The party sees this yatra as a means to strengthen its support base and address concerns related to economic and social justice.
