Day 12: INDIA Alliance Is Fighting Against BJP-RSS

The Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra successfully wrapped up its seven-day journey in Assam and crossed the border of West Bengal. Commencing on the twelfth day, the Nyay Yatra was initiated in the Golakganj Chariali Village of Dhubri District. The day started with a photo session at the campsite alongside the Assam Seva Dal and several regional leaders. Following this, the bus journey embarked on its next leg with a sizable crowd. En route, people eagerly anticipated the arrival of Shri Gandhi. The Nyay Yatra bus made intermittent stops to facilitate Shri Gandhi’s interactions with the public. Numerous individuals climbed aboard the bus to capture moments with the Congress leader, and several legislators joined for photo opportunities with Shri Gandhi.

On the way, hundreds of women outside the Halakura Gaon Panchayat office in Assam were anxiously waiting for Shri Gandhi’s arrival. Upon disembarking, Shri Gandhi engaged in conversations with them, addressed their concerns, and accepted their requests for photos. Advancing further, the procession made a pit stop at a local tea shop, where Shri Gandhi conversed with legislators and leaders, delving into issues like unemployment, corruption, NRC, and challenges faced by farmers and labourers in Assam.

During the journey, Shri Gandhi met with representatives from the All Assam Koch Rajbongshi Student’s Union (AKRSU). The union members voiced their demands and discussed the matter of ST status. The Koch Rajbongshi community has long been advocating for ST status. A decade ago, during a meeting with the Prime Minister, a promise was made to grant ST status within six months. However, a decade later, the promised status remains elusive. Shri Gandhi attentively listened to their concerns, assuring them that a national-level caste census would decisively determine their population and socio-economic status, strengthening their claims.

Around midday, the Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra convoy reached the Assam-West Bengal border. In Cooch Behar, a multitude of people lined the road to welcome Shri Gandhi, expressing their aspirations for justice through the Nyay Yatra. In Cooch Behar, the Assam Congress Committee orchestrated an event to symbolically transfer the national flag from the Assam Congress Committee to the West Bengal Congress Committee, marking the Nyay Yatra’s entry into Bengal.

Addressing the gathering, Shri Gandhi remarked, “Today, we step into West Bengal from Assam. It brings me great joy to be in West Bengal. I extend my heartfelt thanks to all of you for the warm welcome. The INDIA Alliance together will fight against injustice because the BJP and RSS are perpetuating injustice in the country.”

From this juncture, the Nyay Yatra convoy proceeded towards Falakata Alipurduar, where provisions for overnight rest were arranged. Shri Gandhi met with two local journalists on the way. He talked to them and answered the questions asked.

The Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra will take a brief hiatus on January 26 and 27, resuming on January 28.

“Any individual in the country who feels subjected to injustice, experiencing any form of unfair treatment, holds the potential to transform into a Nyay Yoddha. If you harbour the aspiration to become a Nyay Yoddha, give a missed call at 9891802024.”
