Rahul: This Is A Fight For Nyay- ‘Nyay Ka Haq Milne Tak’

The 43rd day of the Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra unfolded today. The Yatra kicked off from Aligarh in alignment with its predetermined itinerary. Once again, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, accompanied by his sister and Congress General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi, marched together, evoking heightened enthusiasm among Congress supporters and the public. The procession commenced from Jamalpur in Aligarh and advanced towards AMU Gate Chungi Chauraha. Besides the caravan, a substantial crowd of thousands also moved alongside. The collective spirit was palpable.

At Shamshad Bazaar Chowk in Aligarh, Rahul and Priyanka addressed the crowd, renewing their robust critique of the central and state BJP government. Priyanka Gandhi initiated the speech, reminiscing about her Aligarh Yatra two years ago. She stated, ‘Two years ago, I came here, do you remember? It was crowded at night, and you all came to meet me. After that, the BJP government of the state was formed. It was already running for five years. The BJP government at the centre has been in power for ten years. Now, when you see the government and the events portrayed by the media, such as the G-20 summit, everyone says – the country’s prestige is increasing, and various events are happening. We are also citizens of the country and happy whenever something like this happens. But I want to ask – is the honor of the country not connected to these young children standing here, to our police officers deployed here, to the students? Is the honor of the country not related to them? Shouldn’t they get employment?’

Not stopping at economic issues, Priyanka addressed the everyday struggles of the common people, asking, ‘What is the benefit for the poor, for the common people? There is no employment for the youth. The farmer who used to sit on the road is still sitting today. The price of sugar has increased by Rs 55 in the last eight years. Just Rs 55! What do you get when you go to the shop to buy vegetables and fruits or to cook at home? The prices have become so high, whether it’s mustard oil, gas, vegetables, tomatoes, potatoes, or anything, but when it’s your turn, you don’t benefit. When elections come, they tell you – take a sack of ration. But until you understand that the government has to work for you, provide you with employment, make you strong, and provide you with educational opportunities, until then, there will be no change.’

After Priyanka’s powerful address, Rahul Gandhi took the microphone, adopting his customary style to criticize the BJP government. He analyzed figures related to the distribution of resources and questioned the government’s commitment to social inclusion. ‘I am talking about Uttar Pradesh; I analyze the figures. In Uttar Pradesh, 62 IAS officers control the budget. Now I ask you, what is the participation of these officers? In the budget of Uttar Pradesh, the participation of OBCs is four per cent, and for Dalits, it is six per cent. It means you have no participation anywhere. If you want to understand where 90 per cent of the people work, Dalits, tribals, backward classes, and minorities, I will tell you. I will show you the list of MNREGA; you will find all backward, Dalit, Adivasi, and minority people there. Take the list of contract labor; you will find Dalits, Adivasis, minorities, and backward classes. You won’t find rich people there.’

Rahul continued, ‘Talk about the list of jails; you will find Dalits, Adivasis, poor people, not a rich person in the jails of India.” He then shifted his focus to the leak of examination papers, criticizing the BJP government for such malpractices. “The exam issue, you know, is a new business that is going on. They conduct exams for you; you study and spend your money on private colleges, universities, and tuition centres. When you go to take the exam, you see the entire question paper available on someone else’s mobile phone. What is the purpose of this – that those demanding employment, asking for government jobs, waste their time, make them fools? Brothers and sisters, the government is doing this job and does not want to give you employment. This is the truth, and employment cannot be created because Adani Ji has been given everything, and these small businessmen, who run small businesses, handicrafts, brass traders, these people, GST has ruined them, demonetization has finished them.’

Following this explosive address by the siblings, the Yatra continued. A notable development during the Aligarh Yatra was the participation of Lok Dal members. Congress General Secretary Jairam Ramesh wrote on his X (Formerly Twitter) account– ‘The RLD may have joined the NDA after attending four meetings of the INDIA coalition in Patna, Bengaluru, Mumbai, and New Delhi. This morning, however, the Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra and Rahul Gandhi received an enthusiastic welcome from the workers and leaders of the original LD (Lok Dal) founded by Bharat Ratna Chaudhary Charan Singh. So much for the RLD’s pretensions.’

Despite the political shifts, it reaffirmed the presence of millions of people standing for truth and the welfare of the country. The Yatra took a break for lunch in Saidaabad, and afterwards, Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav joined the procession. The trio of Rahul, Priyanka, and Akhilesh has left the BJP bewildered, adding to the restless nights of Prime Minister Narendra Modi due to the ongoing Nyay Yatra.

Upon arriving in Agra, the Nyay Yatra garnered immense public support, marked by a warm reception from a spirited crowd. Thousands of individuals enthusiastically welcomed the convoy, setting a positive tone for the event. Addressing the gathering, Priyanka Gandhi graciously welcomed Akhilesh Yadav.

The Samajwadi Party leader addressed the crowd and expressed his happiness about Agra, stating, ‘This city is known worldwide. I am pleased that those who have embarked on the journey of love, this city is not just a market; the entire city is a city of love. Carry as much love as you can and distribute it throughout the journey. The challenges ahead involve saving democracy and preserving the constitution. Baba Saheb Bhimrao Ambedkar’s dream of providing rights and dignity to the poor and marginalized remains unfulfilled after many years. Whatever little was achieved, the Bharatiya Janata Party has been looting.’

Akhilesh Yadav strongly criticized both the central and state BJP governments. He expressed hope for the upcoming time, anticipating the BJP’s defeat in Delhi. He emphasized that the INDIA Alliance government, once formed, would not only ensure respect for farmers but also fulfil their demands, including MSP. He remarked, ‘We all chant slogans – ‘Jai Jawan, Jai Kisan,’ and BJP people never tire of saying ‘Jai Bharat Mata.’ Think about a country where farmers are distressed, where the dreams of the youth are shattered, where the future of the youth is uncertain, with no jobs or employment, and the youth is worried about jobs and employment, as well as degrees. News is also coming that young people are committing suicide by burning their degrees. In such situations, when there should have been the most recruitment in Uttar Pradesh, jobs were not available, and employment was not found. No recruitment takes place in a government where papers are leaked. This is a miraculous government; papers are leaked, and this government does it knowingly.’

Following Akhilesh Yadav, Rahul Gandhi took the stage, reiterating the issue of marginalized communities being excluded from the nation’s progress. Rahul emphasized the need for more representation, pointing out the low number of backward category officers among the top IAS ranks. He stressed the need for Samajik and Arthik Nyay along with Krishak Nyay.

Discussing the ongoing farmers’ protest at the Delhi border, Rahul Gandhi assured that the INDIA Alliance government would swiftly provide legal MSP to farmers. He underscored that the fight is not just for Nyay but also to open Mohabbat Ki Dukan.

Post-speeches, the Yatra continued from Agra to Dholpur, with a homage to Dr. B.R. Ambedkar’s statue and a vibrant roadshow with a massive crowd. In Dholpur, a flag handover ceremony occurred, attended by former Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot. Priyanka Gandhi announced the conclusion of the Nyay Yatra from Uttar Pradesh at this juncture by handing over the National Flag to the Rajasthan Congress President. The night’s rest arrangements were made at Dholpur. After a brief hiatus, the Yatra will recommence from Madhya Pradesh on March 2nd.

“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.”
