Bharat Jodo Yatra: Senior Congress leader Jairam Ramesh accused the BJP’s Manohar Lal Khattar government of trying to prevent people from joining the Bharat Jodo Yatra by the Haryana Police. He also claimed that there was no electricity in the village where the marchers rested the day before. Former Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda addressed the press conference along with Ramesh. Hooda said that government officials should avoid using political tactics. He warned that the police should work properly, otherwise governments keep coming and going.
The Bharat Jodo Yatra, led by Rahul Gandhi, resumed from Malab village in Nuh district on the second day of the Haryana phase on Thursday. The yatra had entered Haryana from Rajasthan on Wednesday.
Ramesh said he has received information that the Haryana Police tried to prevent people from participating in the yatra on Thursday morning. He said barricades were put up at many places and people were told that they do not have permission to join the yatra. Ramesh, who was part of the yatra with Rahul Gandhi, claimed that there was no electricity in the Nuh village where the yatra participants rested.
Ramesh said that he was told that there was no electricity for the whole day on Wednesday whereas there was no disruption in power supply the day before. I find it vendetta politics, he said. The BJP government is furious in Haryana. He said that the Yatra would pass through Panipat, Kurukshetra, Ambala in its next phase in Haryana next month. Again the BJP government will find new ways to create problems for it. He said that what happened yesterday was wrong. If you want to do vendetta politics, do it against the Congress. Why did you do this against the villagers by cutting the electricity just to welcome the yatra?
