Jammu, January 19: Rahul Gandhi reached Jammu and Kashmir on Thursday evening in the last leg of Congress’ Bharat Jodo Yatra. He will conclude the Bharat Jodo Yatra on January 30 at the historic Lal Chowk in Srinagar city. Marching from Punjab to the Lakhanpur area of Kathua, Gandhi said: My forefathers belonged to this land, I feel that I am returning home. I am going back to my roots, I know the suffering of the people of Jammu and Kashmir. I am coming to you with bowed head. Ram Setu: Subramanian Swamy’s question, what kind of Hindu is Modi who hesitates to declare Ram Setu as a national heritage?
He said that the media uses topics like Bollywood stars Aishwarya Rai and Akshay Kumar to divert the attention of the people. BJP and RSS have spread hatred, I thought earlier it was very deep, but it is not and is mainly seen on television. I have come to Kashmir on foot from Kanyakumari, the policies of BJP and RSS have given rise to large scale unemployment. The government is big pocket-cheater, it diverts your attention and then loots you.
Today, it is a great pleasure to reach Jammu and Kashmir as I am going back to my home, where my forefathers have their roots.
And, I am learning and understanding myself, every state, my country. pic.twitter.com/Q0RJaw005r
