Bharat Jodo Yatra, a ‘Sanjeevni’ for Congress: Jairam

Jairam Ramesh

“The Bharat Jodo Yatra has come as a Sanjeevani for the Congress Party,” said Congress MP and General Secretary, Incharge of Communications Jairam Ramesh, at a press conference in Naigaon, Maharashtra, on Wednesday.
The press conference was called to announce and plan the Maharashtra leg of the Bharat Jodo Yatra. Jairam was joined by Maharashtra PCC President Nana Patole and former CM of Maharashtra Ashok Chavan, amongst others. Briefing about the Maharastra leg of the yatra, Ramesh said that Nanded happens to be the 27th district from where the yatra has passed so far. The yatra in Maharashtra would “continue for a total of 12 days.” He further quoted, “It’s a long, 3750 km yatra, and we are covering around 22 km daily, but in Maharashtra, we have taken a lead, inspired by Chavan and Patole.”
Ramesh further stated that there’s a “new wave of energy” amongst the Congress members, workers, and supporters, and they are hopeful for a bright future, seeing the success of the Yatra and the people’s support. Speaking about the turncoats in the Congress party, Ramesh dismissed them saying this ‘seesawing’ is all part of a cycle.
Ramesh talking about the timeline of the Yatra stated, “On the 5th of September, 2022, Rahul Gandhi visited Sabarmati ashram and on the 7th, he paid a visit to a temple in Karnataka, before the inception of his Yatra”.
Pointing out flaws of the government, Ramesh said that congress supporters are on the roads because the country is facing problems of “Unemployment, Economic sector, and Religion”. He further alleged that the BJP is breaking the country in the name of religion, and caste.
Calling the BJP government a ‘One-Man show’, Ramesh put forward Congress’s policies and vision for the country.
