Rahul Gandhi slams BJP-RSS over division tactics in Bharat Jodo Yatra
Palakkad: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Monday slammed the BJP-led centre and said that the BJP-RSS wanted his ongoing Bharat Jodo Yatra to be divided.
The Congress leader also called out the division and alleged that BJP-RSS was "spreading hatred." "BJP-RSS wants this river (people at his rally) to get divided, wants residents to fight with each other. They want a river where if somebody falls, nobody picks him up and where everybody is alone. They run the country by dividing it and spreading hatred," said Congress leader Rahul Gandhi.
He also questioned the farmer loans and stressed that Bharat Jodo Yatra is against every injustice.
"Today billions of loans of big industrialists are being waived. But, if a farmer or small trader cannot repay even a small loan, he is put in jail by calling him a 'Defaulter'. Bharat Jodo Yatra is against every injustice. India will not accept this 'two Hindustan' of the king," tweeted Gandhi.
