KANYAKUMARI, Sep. 9, 2022 (TBINN) Today former Congress’ president Rahul Gandhi hit back at Bhartiya Janta Party over its Parivar Bachao remark, saying the Bharat Jodo Yatra is being undertaken to undo the damage done by the B.J.P.-R.S.S. in the country.
While interacting with media during the yaatra which started from Kanyakumari on Thursday, Gandhi accused B.J.P. of taking control of institutions of the country and pressurising those who are against them.
Everybody has an opinion, B.J.P. has one, R.S.S. has its opinion. They are free to have these. For us, the Congress, this is a journey and an attempt at understanding what is going on in India and an attempt at undoing the damage that has been done by B.J.P. and R.S.S., he said.
Rahul Gandhi alleged that B.J.P. has appointed its own people to the institutions of country. They pressurise those who are against them. We are used to fighting political parties. Now the fight is not between parties. It is now between the structure of Indian state and the Opposition. It is not an easy fight and a lot of people do not want to fight, he told the Press.
