‘We are one nation. Congress disintegrated India in 1947’; says Assam CM

Himanta Biswa Sarma

Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma slammed Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, on Wednesday and said Congress leader can work for ‘Akhand Bharat’ instead of ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’.

“From Kashmir to Kanyakumari and Silchar to Saurashtra, India is united. We are one nation. Congress disintegrated India in 1947. If Rahul Gandhi has any regret or apology that his grandfather made a mistake, then there is no use for the Bharat Jodo Yatra in India. Try to integrate Pakistan and Bangladesh (with India) and work for Akhand Bharat,” Sarma said.

Earlier on Wednesday Bharat Jodo Yatra was launched by Rahul Gandhi.

“India was divided in 1947 under Congress. If they want to start Bharat Jodo Yatra, then Rahul Gandhi should do this in Pakistan. What are the benefits of doing this Yatra in India? India is connected, and united. I want to suggest Rahul Gandhi to take the Bharat Jodo Yatra programme to Pakistan,” the Assam CM said.

Meanwhile, Bharat Jodo Yatra will last about 150 days from Kanyakumari to Kashmir which will cover a 3,570 km journey.

However, Wayanad MP would stay in the container for the next 150 days during which all beds, toilets, and air-conditioners are also installed.
