Speaking at the closing program of the Swatantra Walk held at the National College ground in the city, he attacked the BJP.
The country is at a crossroads. People are anxious. The price hike has skyrocketed. They are going to change history. But, that cannot be done, he said.
Nehru cannot change history. However, he did not expect this from CM Basavaraj Bommai, who expressed outrage over the omission of Nehru’s photo in the government advertisement.
Nehru family’s contribution to this country is immense. However, criticism is being made about such a family. He said that only the people can end this.
Our call for a freedom walk has received a good response online. One lakh people had registered. He said this is a record. People have given strength to the country and democracy by walking in this freedom walk. This is a worthwhile moment, he said.
Metro is very crowded
Congress has arranged for free metro travel for those coming to the program in the background of the Congress walk. About one lakh tickets have been purchased for this. In this background, the metro station is crowded. Passengers traveled by metro from National College Grounds. Metro staff are struggling to control the crowd.
