During the roadshow in Punjab, Rahul Gandhi was seen wearing a saffron turban. The yatra will cover several parts of Punjab over eight days before reaching Jammu and Kashmir, its final stop, on January 19.
Senior Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday aimed at the Bharatiya Janata Party-ruled Centre saying that they are trying to set one caste or religion against another to deteriorate the “ambience” of the nation.
Addressing a public rally in Punjab during the ongoing Punjab leg of the ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra,’ Gandhi said, “They are trying to pit one caste against another and one language against another. They have ruined the general ambience in the country.”
While hailing the ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’, Gandhi said that the yatra aims to fight hatred, unemployment, inflation and violence and spread the message of love, unity and brotherhood.
“We felt the nation needed to be shown a different path — of love, unity and brotherhood. That was what prompted us to launch the yatra. We will be among you and interact with you over the next 10 days,” Rahul told the gathering.
The former Congress chief visited Gurdwara Fatehgarh Sahib and offered his prayers, earlier in the day. Meanwhile, he also offered chadar at Hazrat Saifuddin Farooqi, Rauza Sharif.
