Our nation stands at a critical juncture, grappling with challenges that demand collective action. From India witnessing rapists being garlanded to the suspension of 100+ opposition MPs from the parliament, the harsh reality of today's India necessitates a powerful response. Our Constitution, federal structure, and institutions are under attack. In a time when atrocities against Dalits, women, and farmers are unending, India needs change.
To combat the injustices perpetrated by the BJP-RSS against our country and its people, the Congress party is marching the Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra. Led by Rahul Gandhi, this 6700-kilometer-long march, starting on January 14, 2024, from Manipur to Mumbai, builds on the momentum of the 2022 Bharat Jodo Yatra, addressing deep-seated social, political, and economic injustices.
This movement is more than a political exercise; it is a crusade against the divisive ideology threatening the very essence of India. The yatra focuses on justice, emphasizing the delivery of justice to all by walking through 15 states, transcending political affiliations, against the rising tide of injustice and hatred.
At its core, the Nyay Yatra serves as a platform to voice concerns about the disastrous consequences of a decade of misguided policy-making, resulting in widespread unemployment, inflation, human rights abuses, communalism, and a growing mistrust in institutions. It is a fight against the regime thriving by suppressing all voices—those of the people, the opposition, or any voice that dares to question it. It is a movement to raise the people's voice.
Highlighting India's alarming economic disparity, where the top 5% own 60% of the nation's wealth while the bottom 50% struggles with 3%, the Yatra underscores the urgent need for economic justice. The Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra confronts crony capitalism, exposing rule manipulations favoring billionaires like Adani and serving as a reminder that economic prosperity must be inclusive.
As the Yatra begins, our impassioned appeal goes out to all: become Nyay Yoddhas, warriors for justice. Join the movement, stand united against injustice, and strive for a Bharat embodying equality, inclusivity, and justice for all. It's time to be part of the change and to walk towards a brighter, more equitable future.
