Government in Jharkhand
Rahul Gandhi, the prominent leader of the Indian National Congress, launched scathing criticism against the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) on Saturday, accusing them of attempting to “steal” the government in Jharkhand. Gandhi asserted that the Congress intervened to safeguard the people’s mandate in the state.
Addressing a gathering during the Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra in Godda district, Gandhi emphasized the pivotal role played by the Congress in protecting the Jharkhand Mukti Morcha (JMM)-led coalition government. He underscored the party’s commitment to opposing the ideological stance of the BJP.
Later in the day, Gandhi reached Deoghar, where he participated in the ‘Rudrabhishek’ at the renowned Baba Baidyanath Dham and addressed another rally at Kuwan Singh Chowk.
Speaking at the event, Gandhi highlighted the pressing issue of unemployment among the youth, attributing it to the policies of the BJP-led government. He stated, “The country’s youth want employment. BJP and PM Modi have spread the disease of unemployment in the country. This new disease has infected the Indian youth and has destroyed their future.”
Gandhi also stressed the importance of conducting a caste census to obtain accurate figures regarding the tribal, Dalit, and backward-class populations in the country. “Injustice against tribals, Dalits, and backward class people is increasing in the country,” he added.
The Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra commenced in Manipur on 14 January and entered Jharkhand from West Bengal through Pakur district on Friday afternoon. After a night’s halt at Littipara in Pakur, the yatra resumed from Sarkanda Chowk in Godda district on Saturday morning, according to Congress spokesperson Rakesh Sinha.
The yatra is scheduled to halt at Halkata in Tundi block of Dhanbad on Saturday night. Covering a distance of 804 km, it will traverse 13 districts of the state over eight days in two phases. Overall, the yatra will span 6,713 km across 110 districts in 15 states before concluding in Mumbai on 20 March.
