Congress leader Rahul Gandhi held a rally at the Red Fort in New Delhi as part of his Bharat Jodo Yatra, a march he has been taking throughout the country.
At the rally, Rahul Gandhi accused the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) government, led by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, of spreading Hindu-Muslim hatred to distract from real issues and accused the government of being controlled by business leaders Ambani and Adani.
Rahul Gandhi also alleged that the Modi government had spent thousands of crores to damage his image and claimed that he had shown the truth to the country in just one month.
Rahul Gandhi’s family, including his mother, Sonia Gandhi, and sister Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, joined him for part of the march.
This was the first time the entire Gandhi family had participated in the Bharat Jodo Yatra.
Gandhi also spoke about the difficulties young people face in India, stating that even those with degrees are forced to sell pakoras due to a lack of job opportunities.
He also criticized TV news channels for constantly showing violence and hatred, stating that he had not witnessed such things during his long march across the country.
Rahul Gandhi’s mother, Sonia Gandhi, also appeared at the rally, walking with him and the rest of the family for a short distance.
This was the second time Sonia Gandhi had participated in the Bharat Jodo Yatra, having joined in October in Mandya, Karnataka.
As part of the Bharat Jodo Yatra, Rahul Gandhi and a group of supporters have been walking through various parts of the country since September, starting in Kanyakumari and making their way north to Delhi.
The Bharat Jodo Yatra, which means “unite India“, is meant to highlight the country’s problems and mobilize support for the Congress party.
Along the way, Rahul Gandhi held several rallies and met with people from various communities and professions.
The Bharat Jodo Yatra was briefly joined by veteran actor Kamal Hassan, who expressed his support for Gandhi’s efforts to unite the country.
