New Delhi: Congress’s ‘Bharat Joro Yatra’ concluded today at Srinagar’s Lalchowk But Congress did not leave the controversy behind Facing the media on Monday, Trinamool Congress Lok Sabha leader Sudeep Banerjee categorically claimed that neither he nor his party had been invited to participate in the final leg of Rahul’s Bharat Joro Yatra. However, Sudip Babu indirectly applauded Rahul’s initiative.
From Kanyakumari in the south to Jammu and Kashmir in the north – Rahul Gandhi has traveled across 12 states and two Union Territories in the last 136 days. It was clear from the start that apart from conveying a message to Congress workers, one of the objectives of Rahul’s journey was to strengthen and unify the opposition alliance. Similarly, representatives of several opposition political parties have been seen joining hands with Rahul Gandhi while traveling across various states. But it was at the closing ceremony that the rhythm fell. Only representatives of DMK, NCP, PDP, CPI, RSP, IUML and BSP MPs were present in Srinagar on Monday. Why did the remaining political parties not participate in the closing ceremony? The question has been raised within the Congress.
On behalf of Trinamool Congress, All India Secretary Abhishek Banerjee had earlier informed that they have not received any letter or invitation letter. On this day, the same tone was heard in the voice of Trinamool party leader Sudeep Banerjee in the Lok Sabha in New Delhi on Monday. He said, ‘I have not received any invitation as a Lok Sabha party leader. I don’t know if anyone else got it. However, nothing has been said by the party in this regard.’ However, when asked about this journey of Rahul, Sudeep said that this journey of Rahul Gandhi is a positive and positive step.
Not to mention, a section of observers feel that despite the huge response across the country, at the end of Rahul Gandhi’s 136-day Bharat Joro journey, a big rift remained in the opposition unity. A letter was sent to 21 parties for the closing ceremony in Kashmir, but only a handful of 9 political parties attended. Significantly, the absence of the Samajwadi Party, CPIM and Trinamool Congress raised many questions? In the 2024 Lok Sabha elections, this anti-collusion alliance will get a call at all in front of the huge image of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Similarly, the National Congress is also questioning the attitude of the opposition political parties.
In this context, senior Congress MP Pradeep Bhattacharya said, ‘Congress president Mallikarjun Kharge himself wrote a letter and invited 21 political parties. The letter has also been sent to the Trinamool Congress. Before that, Rahul personally wrote to all the party leaders in the Parliament for the padayatra in Delhi. I don’t have an answer as to why the Trinamool is telling these lies now. But one thing is clear, the efforts we have made to concentrate the opposition unity in one place, they are creating problems again and again. He alleged that this is actually BJP’s strategy. They don’t want the opposites to be in one place. Trinamool Congress is acting as its mouthpiece, alleged senior Congress leader
