Congress MP Rahul Gandhi slammed the media for only noticing his T-shirt and not poor farmers and laborers wearing torn clothes walking with him during the party’s Bharat Jodo Yatra.
Pointing out the media, he said the media never ask why children of poor people are walking without sweaters during the winter season. While addressing a ‘nukkad sabha’ at Baraut on the Baghpat-shamli border on Wednesday. Gandhi said, “I walk in (Bharat Jodo) yatra wearing T-shirts. Many children of poor farmers and labourers walk with me in the yatra wearing torn clothes. But the media does not ask why children of poor farmers and labourers are walking without a sweater and jacket during the winter season.”
The former congress party chief further said that the purpose of the party’s ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ is to remove fear from the people’s minds and highlight issues like price rise and unemployment.
