Speaking at the conclusion of the Freedom Walk program held at the National College Grounds, he said that freedom fighters including Mahatma Gandhi, Nehru, Abdul Kalam Azad did not fight only against the British. He said that in addition, there was a struggle to remove the feeling of difference between human beings, in favor of equality and it was also a struggle against untouchability.
Even after 75 years, the freedom struggle of the country is not over. Today we have to fight for the survival of democracy. The constitution of the country is under attack. He alleged that investigative agencies are being misused.
This country cannot run by attacking women, Dalits, backward, minorities. This country is a country of harmony and equality. You cannot discriminate on the basis of language, color, dress. Even so, it is being felt today. He said that we have to fight against this.
This country is everyone’s country. Dalits, Muslims, women, poor are all country. He warned that Congress will fight on behalf of those whose power is being usurped.
