Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma’s statement on Congress Party’s Bharat Jodo Yatra is in discussion. He had said that Rahul Gandhi should undertake this journey outside India to Pakistan-Bangladesh and work for a united India. On this, now a statement has come out from Pakistan’s side. Pakistan on Wednesday rejected Himanta Biswa Sarma’s statement promoting the idea of ’Akhand Bharat’.
‘Integrate Pakistan and Bangladesh’
In fact, an official statement by Pakistan’s Foreign Office referred to Sarma’s remarks that Congress leader Rahul Gandhi, if he had any regrets about the partition of the country done by his ancestors, would give him ‘Akhand Bharat’. Efforts should be made to integrate Pakistan and Bangladesh with India.
In fact, Assam CM Sarma made this statement in the context of Congress’s India Jodo Yatra being led by Rahul Gandhi. A statement by Pakistan’s foreign ministry said the futile claim is an expression of the ruling BJP’s ‘Hindutva’ majoritarian agenda and its expansionist mindset, which seeks to erase the identity and culture of its country’s religious minorities as well as neighboring countries.
There was a whole ruckus when he, while giving a statement on Rahul Gandhi’s India Jodo Yatra, said that if India is to be united, then Pakistan and Bangladesh should be united to form a united India. Sarma was replying to media queries on Congress’s ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’. Sarma said that India is one. India is connected. India and Pakistan were divided in 1947. From Kashmir to Kanyakumari and from Silchar to Saurashtra, we are all one.
He further added that if Rahul Gandhi feels that his maternal grandfather Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru had made a mistake and he regrets it, then there is no point in the Bharat Jodo Yatra in his own country. You try to unite Pakistan and Bangladesh and make a united India. There is no question of India being fragmented.
