Rahul, Akhilesh resolve to defeat ‘ hate mongering’ BJP

Agra, (UNI) Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav on Sunday joined Congress MP Rahul Gandhi’s Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra, as the two leaders resolved to get the “hate mongering’ BJP defeated at the hands of the I.N.D.I.A bloc.

Expressing confidence that together they will decimate the BJP, the two leaders said, the greatest challenge for the country was to save the democracy and constitution and that can only be done once the BJP is defeated.

Yadav, who joined the BJNY on the 43rd day of the campaign here, was accompanied by senior party leaders and workers. Apart from Rahul Gandhi. Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi was also present.

Thanking Yadav for participating in the Yatra, Gandhi said, a new message has gone across that the INDIA bloc together will defeat the BJP, which was trying to divide the country.

He said the greatest fight right now for the INDIA bloc is against the hatred and disharmony being spread by the saffrom party.

Asserting that India is a country of love and not hatred, Rahul Gandhi said, their top most priority is to stand up against the hate and defeat it.

The former Congress president said it was the struggle for social and economic justice that the INDIA bloc is fighting together.

He said, the backward, Dalits, minorities and Adivasis together constituted about 90 percent of the country’s participation and still their representation and participation in different sectors was nil or negligible.

He said, whether it was the private corporate sector or the government, this “90 percent” section of the population remained marginalised and unrepresented.

Referring to the agitation by farmers, Gandhi said, they had one simple demand: that of getting legal status on MSP for various crops.

Speaking on the occasion, Akhilesh Yadav praised Rahul Gandhi for leading the yatra that has spread love and harmony in the country.

He said, there could be no better city than Agra, which symbolises love and harmony, saying Agra is the city of love.

The former UP Chief Minister alleged that the BJP was undermining the legacy of Dr Bhimrao Ambedkar by undermining the constitution and democracy. Adding that the biggest challenge was to save democracy and the constitution.

Accusing the BJP government of mistreating the farmers, Yadav said the farmers were only demanding what the BJP had promised them. But now the same government was treating them as if they were enemies.

Criticising the UP government for failing on all counts, the SP chief said that unemployment was at its highest. He said, there should have been maximum recruitments in the state, while there are none.

He alleged that the question papers of every recruitment test were being leaked and this was being done deliberately.

Earlier, Priyanka Gandhi thanked and welcomed Akhilesh Yadav and other Samajwadi Party leaders and workers for joining the Yatra and adding strength to it. She expressed confidence that together the two parties will defeat the BJP.
