Day 7: BJP Wants To Loot The Country

Seven Sister States of the North East are as relevant as the seven colours in a Rainbow. Mr. Gandhi has been travelling across the North East, listening to the people and showcasing the beautiful diversity that co-exists. Today’s Yatra began from Boginadi, Lakhimpur, with a similarly massive crowd of people that has been closely following in the footsteps of the Yatra.

People were waiting for Mr Gandhi all along the route. Everyone was eager to meet or just have a glance of the congress leader. This has been a routine that Mr. Gandhi has gotten used to since the start of the Yatra. The love and affection of the people keep flowing like a river. The Women dressed in traditional attire were raising the ‘Rahul Gandhi Zindabad’ slogans.

देश के लोगों का यही अपनापन, न्याय के इस संघर्ष पथ पर मुझे अडिग बनाता है! #BharatJodoNyayYatra

Foremost in meeting Mr. Gandhi today were members of the Tai Ahom delegation. They discussed their problems with Mr. Gandhi in detail. Discussion is the only way towards an acceptable solution. This objective of Mr. Gandhi continues to make him popular among the masses.

After this, the Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra proceeded to ‘Padumoni Than’. Mr. Gandhi spent a few moments drawing inspiration from the tranquil atmosphere of the Temple. The temple was built in 1951. This temple is important not only for Lakhimpur but for the whole of Assam. The temple is famous for its way of worshipping Goddess Padumoni and its peaceful atmosphere.

Mr. Gandhi paid floral tribute to Lachit Borphukan, an Ahom Borphukan commanding the Ahom Army. He led the Ahom army to victory in the Battle of Saraighat against an invasion by the Mughal Forces. He is still an inspiration to the Youth for his bravery against a superior enemy. Mr Gandhi also paid floral tribute to Birsa Munda.

Near Lakhimpur, Shri Rahul Gandhi got off the bus to greet school children who had lined up to meet him and were chanting ‘Jodo, Jodo, Bharat Jodo’. Seeing that such young children had such clarity on their vision for the Country was a positive sight. The Yatra then stopped at Govindpur, Lakhimpur, for Lunch.

Post lunch, the yatra moved towards Harmutti, Lakhimpur, from where it was to enter Arunachal Pradesh. A group consisting of 4 people met Mr Gandhi to apprise him of the injustice that they had endured due to the introduction of the Agnipath Scheme by the Modi Government.

Meanwhile, the Nyay Yatra had reached Gumta, where the Assam PCC President handed the national flag to the Arunachal Pradesh PCC President. This marked the entry of the Yatra into Arunachal Pradesh. After that, Mr Gandhi addressed the gathering, saying- ‘The people of Arunachal Pradesh have welcomed me with so much love, and I am thankful to them. RSS-BJP is pitting one religion against the other. The Media is not ready to show the real issues concerning the people, like unemployment and inflation. We have started the Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra for this very reason.

North East is as important as other big states in the Country. We spend 6-7 hours travelling and in the evening spend 20 minutes for the speeches. I met young adults from Arunachal who mentioned how the government had destroyed their future. Similarly, the government has pushed the future of around 1 lakh 50 thousand youth into darkness. If you have any problem with China or otherwise, we would like to listen to them. This Yatra is for that purpose. This Yatra is to protect your language and your culture.’

After his address, Mr. Gandhi undertook a Padyatra from Mithun Gate, Itanagar. Then Mr Gandhi had an interaction with Mr Toke Tekom. Mr Tekom was the representative of the Arunachal Pradesh Olympic Association. He mentioned how China had denied accreditation to him and other sports persons.

The convoy of Mr Gandhi was passing through Itanagar when he noticed a group of employees from the Indian Oil plant waiting to meet him. He asked the bus to be stopped and got down to meet all of them. The employees were ecstatic at this face-to-face interaction with Mr Rahul Gandhi.

After this, the next stop of the Yatra was Doimukh, where Mr Gandhi addressed the young crowd by saying- ‘The states over here can teach a lot from their different languages, culture and lifestyle. Arunachal Pradesh is burdened with corruption, unemployment and inflation. The roads are full of potholes. We aim to raise your issues in Parliament and to make the nation aware of them. The BJP aims to loot the wealth of this country.’

After this speech, the Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra left for Chimpu village, Itanagar, where the provision for the night halt was made.

“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.”
