'Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra' enters Arunachal Pradesh

Itanagar :
Congress 'Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra' led by Rahul Gandhi on Saturday entered Arunachal Pradesh from Assam. The Congress leader was received by Arunachal Pradesh Congress Committee (APCC) president Nabam Tuki at the Gumto check gate in Papum Pare district, where the flag handover ceremony was held. The flag handover ceremony was held between Tuki and Assam Pradesh Congress Committee president Bhupen Borah in the presence of senior party leaders from both the states.

Speaking on the occasion, Gandhi thanked the people for the warm welcome. Adorned with traditional Nyishi headgear, Gandhi proceeded to Doimukh along with hundreds of party workers, where he would address a public rally. From Doimukh, Gandhi would reach Naharlagun by bus and interact with street vendors, party sources said. The Congress leader would then move towards Nyokum Lapang from where he would embark on a foot march to the Malo Tarin government higher secondary school ground to address a public rally. Gandhi would also address a press conference at Itanagar on Saturday. Gandhi will leave the state capital on Sunday morning through Hollongi. The 6,713-km-long march, led by the Congress MP, commenced from Manipur on January 14 and will culminate on March 20 in Mumbai.

Meanwhile, elaborate security arrangements have been made for the Arunachal Pradesh leg of the yatra. Papum Pare SP Taru Gusar said adequate security arrangements have been made for the proposed yatra in the district through which Gandhi will enter the state Capital. "Route lining from Gumto check gate to SDO ground at Doimukh, has been made and the areas where Gandhi would stop and address the public, have been sanitised", the SP said. Forces have been deployed and briefed thoroughly, he added.

In Itanagar, adequate security personnel have been deployed in two places - Mallo Tarin government higher secondary school ground where Gandhi will address a public meeting, and at Chimpu, where the Congress leader will halt at night, Capital SP Rohit Rajbir Singh told PTI. Security has also been beefed up along the NH-415 from Nyokum Lapang area to Rajiv Gandhi Bhawan, where Gandhi will hold a foot march, the SP added.

Arunachal Pradesh Congress president Nabam Tuki on Friday appealed to the people of the state to join the ‘Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra’ led by Congress MP Rahul Gandhi. The Yatra will reach Arunachal Pradesh on Saturday afternoon, from Lakhimpur in neighbouring Assam. “Become a ‘Nyay Yodha’ and carry the message of love and harmony and awaken the nation’s conscience to crippling inequality, brutal social polarisation and violent authoritarianism. Let’s walk together to fight hatred and fear!” said Tuki, a former chief minister. He alleged that the last 10 years of "grave injustice" by the BJP government has severely hurt people, democracy and the Constitution. “Unprecedented unemployment has shattered the dreams and future of our youth," he said claiming that poor and middle-class people lost their savings due to the price rise. "Income inequality is at its peak,” Tuki alleged in a statement.

While the SCs, STs, OBCs, minorities and poor people have been deceived, autonomous institutions have been subjugated, the Congress leader claimed. Central agencies such as ED, CBI, and the Income Tax department are being used against the opposition, Tuki alleged.
