Indian Congress leader Rahul Gandhi was not allowed to travel to Manipur. The state government allowed Rahul to enter Manipur due to renewed violence in the Indian border town of Moreh. As a result, Rahul Gandhi’s new political program ‘Bharat Jodo Nyaya Yatra’ is facing obstacles. Indian media NDTV reported this information in a report.
Recently there was a gunfight between the Manipur Police and the militants on the Indo-Myanmar border. There is tension in the border town of Morehe. The police say that the alarming situation in Manupur has not normalized yet.
Manipur Chief Minister Biren Singh said the Assam Rifles, BSF and state police are jointly conducting ‘mass combing operation’ to arrest the terrorists.
Regarding the ‘Bharat Joro Nyaya Yatra’ led by Rahul Gandhi, Biren Singh said, ‘We are considering allowing Rahul Gandhi’s rally. We are taking reports from various security agencies. We will take a concrete decision after receiving the report from them.”
Armed terrorists fired at the security forces in Moreh last Sunday. According to the police, the terrorists attacked with mortal shells. But no one was injured. Since then, the situation in Manipur has been stagnant.
Meanwhile, in a press conference in Guwahati, Congress general secretary KC Venugopal said, “We are still waiting for the permission of the Manipur government.”
According to Hindustan Times, the Congress Executive Committee meeting on December 21 unanimously decided on Rahul Gandhi’s Bharat Nyaya Yatra. It was decided in the same meeting that Rahul Gandhi would go on ‘Bharat Nyaya Yatra’ from Manipur to Mumbai on the lines of ‘Bharat Jaro’ Yatra. He will cross 14 states, 85 districts and 6,200 kilometers on foot in this 65-day long journey.
He is scheduled to start his journey from the northeastern state of Manipur on January 14. The journey will end in Mumbai on March 20. But in the meantime, Rahul’s ‘Bharat Jodo Nyaya Yatra’ has come under uncertainty due to the violent incidents in Manipur.
Earlier on September 6, 2022, Rahul Gandhi started ‘Bharat Jaro Yatra’ from Kanyakumari. At that time he walked for 150 days and covered 4500 km. His visit to India inspired the common people. Popularity of Rahul Gandhi and Congress increased. Taking all these aspects into consideration, the party’s executive committee members urged Rahul to undertake a similar journey in the meeting held on December 21. Then Rahul Gandhi said, he will do whatever the party wants.
