Rahul Gandhi: The Nation’s Two Critical Issues – Poverty And Unemployment

The Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra entered its 35th day today, marking the first complete day in Uttar Pradesh and a significant visit to the holy city of Kashi (Varanasi). The yatra commenced with Rahul Gandhi’s roadshow till Gadauliya Chauraha. Addressing a massive crowd at Gadauliya Chauraha, Rahul Gandhi spoke of the country’s strength in unity. He emphasized, ‘This nation thrives on love, not hatred. It becomes robust when all its people collaborate. Similar to how a family strengthens when united, the country prospers when unified. True patriotism lies in uniting the country. I have come here to pay my respects at the temple, bowing my head before the Ganges. My presence is one of humility, not arrogance, both here and in this Yatra.’

He then queried the audience about the two primary challenges facing the nation, with the youth highlighting unemployment and poverty.

Subsequently, the Nyay Yatra convoy continued its journey. Rahul Gandhi, along with other Congress leaders, conducted a puja at Kashi Vishwanath Temple, extending prayers for the country’s prosperity. Even in this sacred place, political tensions between the Congress and BJP persisted. Photographers were denied entry today when Rahul Gandhi sought blessings at the temple, in contrast to yesterday when there were no restrictions.

Post the temple visit, Rahul Gandhi and the Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra convoy visited Rajghat. Here, in 1955, Acharya Vinoba Bhave established the ‘Sarv Seva Sangh,’ a Gandhian organization promoting non-violence. Many eminent leaders, including Dr. Rajendra Prasad, Lal Bahadur Shastri, Babu Jagjivan Ram, Jayaprakash Narayan, and Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan, were associated with this organization. However, the building was controversially demolished last year.

Jairam Ramesh, Congress General Secretary, addressed the media, both through his X (Formerly Twitter) account and during an interaction with journalists in Kurona. He explained that- ‘The ‘Sarv Seva Sangh’ propagated Gandhian ideology across the country, primarily focusing on publications. The organization received 13 acres of land through land donation in 1955, but the building was bulldozed last year.’

Following the lunch break, the yatra was set to continue from Jansa Chauraha in Varanasi towards Bhadohi. However, due to an emergency, Rahul Gandhi had to leave immediately for Wayanad, his constituency in Kerala, prioritizing his duties towards the people there. He is expected to rejoin the yatra in Prayagraj on February 18th afternoon.

“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.”
