Speaking at the inauguration of the Padayatra held in Gundlupet, Bharat Jodo Yatra is for the defense of the Constitution and against the spread of hatred by the BJP-RSS in the country.
He said that there is no constitution which means there is no value for the national flag, he said that despite rain and sun, we are going on a continuous march. He said that lakhs of people are participating and giving vitality.
Hatred and violence are not seen anywhere in this yatra. People of all religions and languages participate in this yatra. During the padayatra, they offer to help without questioning caste or religion. This is our beautiful India of peace and harmony, he said.
It will be held from Kanyakumari to Kashmir. No power can stop the hike. He said this is India’s journey. Along the way, people are meeting and telling about the pain, unemployment, price rise, injustice being done to the farmers. He explained that people are telling their pains and sorrows.
The purpose of this hike is to listen to you. Many democratic institutions have been closed to opposition parties. Everything is controlled by the government. We are not allowed to speak in the parliament, we are not allowed to go to the assembly. So this is the only road for us. We are hiking to it. He said that the 40% commission going on in Karnataka will be discussed about corruption, injustice to farmers and the poor.
