Rahul Gandhi: Paanch Naari Nyay, Aadhi Aabaadi Ko Poora Haq

The 60th day of the Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra commenced in the Dhule district of Maharashtra, India. The leader of the Nyay Yatra, Rahul Gandhi, kindled a ray of hope among the people by announcing Adivasi Nyay yesterday. This is why people of all ages – children, elderly, and youth – enthusiastically participated in this Yatra that kicked off from Dondaicha in Dhule. Following the tradition, Rahul Gandhi initiated the Yatra with a roadshow. Initially, he paid tribute to the brave martyrs at the Kranti Smarak in Dhule. Subsequently, near the Manohar Talkies Chowk, he addressed the people. In his typical composed demeanor, Rahul Gandhi engaged with the people, discussing the local issues and the prevalent Anyay in detail.

He stated that the country has three issues: inflation, unemployment, and participation. The government is neglecting Dalits, backward classes, the poor, and tribal people. Congress will rectify this, and to achieve that, we have announced specific initiatives in our manifesto. These include revolutionary steps such as caste census, precise evaluation of the control of the country’s wealth, and economic and financial surveys and caste census, which I will oversee.

In Dhule, the Congress party organized a conference for women, the Mahila Melawa Meeting. Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge addressed the women at the conference via video conferencing. Making a significant announcement regarding Naari Nyay, he remarked, ‘Women constitute half of our country’s population, yet regrettably, it must be acknowledged that they have gained nothing in the past decade. The Modi government has exacerbated their plight. Any progress made is merely for political gain and garnering votes from women. Whether it be the hollow promise of women’s reservation, escalating inflation, or record-breaking crimes, the repercussions of all these issues disproportionately affect women. The BJP government is faltering on all these fronts. Hence, today, the Congress party pledges the assurance of Naari Nyay. Under this commitment, the Congress party aims to establish a new agenda for women in the nation. Within the scope of Naari Nyay, the Congress party is unveiling five key announcements.’

The guarantees for Nari Nyay are as follows:

  1. Mahalakshmi: 1 lakh per annum direct cash transfer to one woman from each of India’s poorest families

  1. Aadhi Aabaadi, Poora Haq: Half of all new recruitments to Central Government positions will be reserved for women

  1. ⁠Shakti ka Samman: The Central Govt’s contribution to the monthly pay of ASHA, Anganwadi, and mid-day meal workers will be doubled

  1. Adhikar Maitri: We will appoint an ‘adhikar maitri’ in every panchayat to serve as a paralegal to educate women and assist them in the enforcement of their legal rights

  1. Savitri Bai Phule Hostels: Central Government will double the number of working women’s hostels in the country, with at least one hostel in each district

‘Before this, we pledged to deliver Nyay for the youth and Bhagidaari Nyay. Our commitments are not mere rhetoric; they are carved in stone. Since 1926, we have maintained this track record: from when our adversaries were just taking their first steps in the world, we’ve been crafting manifestos and diligently fulfilling them.’

Following the Congress President’s announcement, Rahul Gandhi stepped onto the stage to address the audience. He commenced by warmly welcoming the women present, remarking, ‘Today, sisters are prominently represented. It’s heartening to witness. Typically, you’re relegated to the back or corners, but today, men have taken a backseat.’

Rahul Gandhi emphasized, ‘In India, 22 individuals possess as much wealth as 70 crore people combined. 16 lakh crore rupees of debt belonging to billionaires are waived off. The annual expenditure to operate MNREGA stands at 65,000 crore rupees. Essentially, Modi Ji has forgiven the debts of 22-25 individuals, which means 24 years of MNREGA money. He hasn’t extended this debt waiver to farmers, college fees, women, or laborers. Instead, he’s pardoned the debts of the wealthiest individuals in the country. There can be no greater Anyay than this. I’m simply stating that if the debts of the affluent are being waived off, then the debts of women, youth, and the underprivileged should also be waived. This is Aarthik Anyay.’

Addressing social injustice, Rahul Gandhi asserted, ‘ There is approximately 50 percent of the marginalized population in India. Their exact numbers remain unknown. 15% constitute Dalits, another 15% minorities, 8% tribals, and 5% poor general caste. However, the participation of this 90 percent is scarcely visible in India. When the price of a cylinder stood at 400 rupees, Modi Ji deemed it expensive. Today, it stands at 1100 rupees, yet there’s a conspicuous silence in the media.’

Rahul Gandhi then apprised the women attending the Mahila Melawa Meeting about the Congress President’s announcement. Addressing the sizable gathering, he drew attention to several pressing issues.

He articulated, ‘Major media conglomerates, corporations, private healthcare facilities, private educational institutions, and even government departments witness minimal participation from the 90 percent of the general populace. However, your finances will invariably be directed there. When a hospital is erected, your land will be requisitioned. Yet, when it’s time for you to have a say, you’re relegated to the sidelines. Women bear the brunt of this disparity. They endure a double whammy: being marginalized or tribal and being women. When Narendra Modi Ji made grand gestures in the Lok Sabha, promising reservation, setting off fireworks, and dancing, it was then said that reservation would be granted after a survey. But when will this survey take place? A decade later. When the Congress party assumes power, we’ll immediately grant you reservation. No survey is required. This will be our first order of business. We advocate for women’s participation in every sphere. Women must be seen and heard.’

In his announcement of Naari Nyay, Rahul Gandhi concluded, ‘Women constitute 50%  of the population. Mr. Kharge has made five landmark announcements today.’

  1. Mahalakshmi- Rs one lakh per annum direct cash transfer will be made to one woman from each of India’s poorest families. This will be a revolutionary step in elevating the plight of the poor. Gandhi remarked that if Narendra Modi could waive off a few billionaires’ Rs 16 lakh crore debt, why can’t poor women get Rs one lakh yearly?
  2. Aadhi Aabaadi, Poora Haq- 50% of jobs in the Central Government will be reserved for women. Very soon, you will find half of the government offices filled with women.
  3. Shakti ka Samman- The central government’s contribution towards the monthly pay of ASHA, Anganwadi, and mid-day meal workers will be doubled. This will help substantially increase the monthly remuneration of these lady workers.
  4. Adhikar Maitri- Under this government will provide for the appointment of an ‘adhikar maitri’ for legal support in every panchayat to serve as a paralegal to educate women and assist them in the enforcement of their legal rights.
  5. Savitri Bai Phule Hostels- It will provide hostels for working women in every district headquarters across the country with proper security and food arrangements.

‘We are committed to working for you. When I spoke about Bhaagidari, it’s essential to find a way for the marginalized, the backward, and the tribal communities. The solution lies in conducting a caste census, counting everyone, followed by an economic survey.’

After this speech, the Yatra proceeded towards Malegaon. Here, the Congress leader performed worship at the renowned Hanuman temple in Malegaon and then embarked on a roadshow. Even during the roadshow in Malegaon, a large number of people joined the yatra. The respect and affection the people of India are showing without any media coverage indicate that the struggle for nyay is reaching remote areas on its own. Rahul Gandhi addressed the public in Malegaon, launching a scathing attack on the central government. He assured people that they would stand together in the fight for nyay and address Arthik and Samajik Anyay.

Rahul Gandhi stated, ‘The country faces three main issues: inflation, unemployment, and partnership. Modi ji consistently diverts attention from these issues. Inflation and unemployment affect everyone daily. GST and demonetization have destroyed small businesses like the Powerloom textile of Malegaon. Narendra Modi ji has favored billionaires like Adani. Adani told Modi Ji that if he wanted to ensure his visibility on TV, then he should implement GST and demonetization to eliminate small businesses. Modi ji complied. Today, the country’s youth struggle to find employment. During the UPA’s time, if a cylinder cost Rs. 400, Modi ji called it expensive. Today, at Rs. 1100, the media remains silent about its rising cost.’

Rahul continued, ‘The Congress party guarantees Paanch Yuva Nyay in its manifesto for the youth. It is not the BJP’s empty promises but concrete assurances from Congress. An MP from the BJP mentioned ending the Constitution after the elections. I want to assert, leave Modi aside, no power in the world can abolish the Constitution. This is the foundation of our country; we won’t allow anyone to tamper with it.’

  1. BHARTI BHAROSA (भर्ती भरोसा)
    We guarantee BHARTI BHAROSA to all the Youth of the country. All vacant posts of around 30 lakhs in the Union Government will be filled. A timeline will be decided from examination to recruitment.
  2. PEHLI NAUKRI PAKKI (पहली नौकरी पक्की)
    Even after having a degree, every second youth is unemployed because they do not have proper apprenticeship training. Congress Party guarantees that by bringing a new RIGHT TO APPRENTICESHIP law, through which we will provide Apprenticeship Training to every Diploma or Degree holder below 25 years of age in government or private sector. All apprentices will be given assistance of Rs 1 lakh i.e. ₹ 8,500 per month in a year.
  3. PAPER LEAK SE MUKTI (पेपर लीक से मुक्ति)
    Today, the situation in the country is such that recruitment process does not happen. Even if the recruitment process starts, there is no paper. If there is paper, then paper gets leaked. Just imagine, our youth from villages and small towns come to cities to study. Their parents spend their entire lifesavings to get them a government job. Therefore, Congress Party guarantees that we will put a full stop on Paper Leaks by bringing a new law. Will ensure that all examinations are conducted in a fair manner. The years of hard work of our Youth, should not go in vain.
  4. SOCIAL SECURITY FOR GIG ECONOMY (गिग इकॉनॉमी के लिए सामाजिक सुरक्षा)
    Shri Rahul Gandhi met lakhs of people during Bharat Jodo Yatra and Bharat Jodo Nyaya Yatra. He met many people including Truck Drivers, Mechanics, Carpenters, Delivery people, Taxi Drivers etc, all part of the informal Gig Economy. Rahul ji shared their sorrows and pains, listened to their problems. What problems they face, how low their salaries are, he heard and understood all these things. We understand the difficult conditions in which they are working in cities miles away from their villages. After this, the then Congress Government of Rajasthan brought a social security law for the welfare of all these people. Congress Party guarantees that we will bring a new law for social security and working conditions in Gig Economy. Crores of such youth who are supporting themselves and their families by working informally in the Gig Economy shall be benefitted.
  5. YUVA ROSHINI (युवा रोशनी)
    Under Yuva Roshini, a FUND will be created with an amount of ₹5,000 Cr which will be distributed in all the districts of the country. Congress Party guarantees that this FUND will be given to youth below 40 years of age to start their own business – A Startup. All these businesses will create lakhs of jobs for the Youth. The five guarantees for the youth included a commitment to eradicate unemployment, ensure job security through permanent positions, prevent paper leaks in recruitment exams, provide social security for gig economy workers, and initiate a fund of 5 thousand crores for youth empowerment.

When somebody raised a question about EVMs, Rahul Gandhi said, ‘The entire nation is claiming there’s a flaw in the EVMs. Despite our efforts to approach the Election Commission, they seem unwilling to listen. An election commissioner resigned just days before the election raises concerns. There must be a reason.’

Addressing the women present, he said, ‘Today, we have announced Paanch Nyay for women. Every poor woman in India will receive one lakh rupees annually.’

After this address, the journey proceeded towards the night camp. Tonight’s camp was set up near Malegaon.

“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.”

    आदरणीय परम आदरणीय श्री राहुल गांधी जी सांसद लोकसभा भारत सरकार सर आपका ध्यान हम राष्ट्रीय स्वास्थ्य मिशन के कर्मचारी व इन कर्मचारियों के बीच कार्यरत ब्लॉक कमेटी प्रक्रिया मैनेजर की समस्या से अवगत कराना चाहते हैं कि आप हम सबको न्याय अवश्य दिलाए देश में सिर्फ एक आखरी उम्मीद बची है तो वह आप हैं जो देश की हर गरीब मजदूर पीड़ित शोषित वर्ग के लिए संघर्ष कर रहे हैं आज देश का हरिद्वार आपको सर्वोच्च नेता के तौर पर अपने मार्गदर्शन के तौर पर अपने बड़े भाई के तौर पर एक उम्मीद लगाकर आपसे बैठा है कि न्याय मिलेगा आपको विस्तार पूर्वक ब्लॉक कमेटी प्रक्रिया मैनेजर के बारे में बता रहा हूं और आपसे मेरा हाथ जोड़कर निवेदन है कि आप हमें भारत जोड़ो ने यात्रा में मिलकर आपसे बात करने का मौका अवश्य मिलेगा आप हमें अवश्य बुलाएंगे या मुझे पूरा भरोसा है

    राष्ट्रीय स्वास्थ्य मिशन के अंतर्गत मैं एक संविदा कर्मचारी हूं और सन 2015 में हम लोगों को राज्य स्तर से 12000 के मासिक वेतनमान पर नियुक्त किया गया था। उस समय आशा को मिलने वाला मासिक प्रतिपूर्ति धनराशि औसतन 1700 रुपए थी और आशाओं की पर्यवेक्षक अर्थात संगिनी को ₹3000 मासिक प्रतिपूर्ति धनराशि औसतन प्रदान की जाती थी । वर्तमान में क्योंकि हम लोग ब्लॉक कम्युनिटी प्रक्रिया मैनेजर है, और आशा तथा संगिनी के जितने भी कार्य होते हैं वे सब ब्लॉक लेवल पर हम लोगों की जिम्मेदारी होती है और हम लगातार उन कार्यों की पर्यवेक्षक निरीक्षण मूल्यांकन प्रशिक्षण उन्मुखीकरण आदि कार्य करने होते हैं, इसके अतिरिक्त आयुष्मान आरोग्य मंदिर के माध्यम से चलाई जाने वाले समस्त कार्यों की स्वीकारता समुदाय में कराए जाने भी शामिल है और आयुष्मान आरोग्य मंदिर पर समस्त समुदाय वासी हेल्थ एंड वैलनेस से संबंधित सेवाओं का सत् प्रतिशत उपभोग कर सकें इसके लिए भी प्रार्थी जन सामुदायिक स्वास्थ्य अधिकारी के साथ कंधे से कंधा मिलाकर सहयोग प्रदान करते हैं और अन्य विभागों का भी सहयोग लेते हुए स्वास्थ्य कार्यक्रमों का प्रचार प्रसार सुनिश्चित करते हैं और आशा और संगिनी को समय से उनका भुगतान उनके खातों में चल जाए इसके लिए भी हम लोग पूर्ण शिद्दत के साथ कार्य करते हैं। वर्तमान समय में आशाओं को औसतन 6100 मासिक प्रतिपूर्ति धनराशि तथा संगनी को 10600 की औसत प्रतिपूर्ति धनराशि प्रदान की जा रही है जो की सन 2015 के सापेक्ष तीन से चार गुनी अधिक है लेकिन प्रार्थी जनों का मासिक भुगतान 12000 से बढ़ाकर मात्र 15000 किया है जबकि यह किसी भी स्तर से संतोषजनक नहीं है। शासन स्तर से चलाई जाने वाली समस्त योजनाओं में ब्लॉक प्रक्रिया प्रबंधक को हर कार्यक्रम में शामिल किया जाता है तथा प्रार्थी गणों की कार्य शैली स्वास्थ्य शिक्षा अधिकारी और स्वास्थ्य विभाग में कार्यरत एआरओ के समक्ष है जबकि उनके वेतनमान के सापेक्ष हम लोगों का 4 से 5 गुना कम है राज्य स्तर पर कई बार वार्ता की गई है, लेकिन उनके द्वारा यह अवगत कराया गया है कि राष्ट्रीय स्वास्थ्य मिशन कार्यक्रम केंद्र सरकार द्वारा चलाए जा रहा है हमारे द्वारा केंद्र सरकार को प्रपोजल भेजे जाते हैं भुगतान बढ़ाना न बढ़ाना केंद्र सरकार के अधीन है। महोदय से विनम्र निवेदन है कि इस महंगाई के समय में और जिम्मेदारियां को वहन करने में यह मासिक वेतनमान काफी कम है कृपया इस ओर विशेष ध्यान देते हुए एनएचएम कर्मी का मासिक भुगतान बढ़ाने की कृपा करें जिससे शासन स्तर से चलाई जाने वाली योजनाओं को पूर्ण निष्ठा और कर्तव्य परायणता के साथ निभाते हुए सम्मानित महसूस करें। एनएचएम कर्मी को भी आशा और संगिनी के समान ही प्रधानमंत्री आयुष्मान योजना का लाभ भी मिल सके। यह भी अल्प वेतन वालों के लिए आवश्यक है।
