Congress factionalism came to the fore
Many big leaders including former Chief Minister Harish Rawat, former Speaker and Leader of Opposition Pritam Singh, Badrinath MLA Rajendra Bhandari, Manish Khanduri did not appear in the Bharat Jodo rally on the occasion of the launch of Bharat Jodo Yatra. State in-charge Devendra Yadav also could not attend the rally, but the political reason behind the in-charge not reaching is not believed. But the way the big and veteran faces of the Congress were not seen in the rally, it is clear that nothing is going right inside the Congress.
Congress’s biggest face in Uttarakhand, former CM Harish Rawat missing
Congress has also started Bharat Jodo Yatra in Uttarakhand. The purpose of this yatra is to connect the public with the party. This journey is going on all over the country. But the way the journey has started in Uttarakhand, questions are being raised in the beginning. The kind of solidarity that should have been seen in the beginning of the Yatra was missing on the very first day itself. Former CM Harish Rawat, the biggest face of Congress in Uttarakhand, is also raising many questions. Former CM Harish Rawat had announced to move from Uttarakhand to the politics of Delhi, but Harish Rawat had joined the agitation outside the police station of his daughter Haridwar Rural MLA Anupama Rawat in Haridwar. In such a situation, questions are being raised about not participating in the India Jodo Yatra.
Pritam Singh’s disappearance from the yatra is a matter of discussion in the political corridors
Former state president and former leader of opposition Pritam Singh also did not attend the program during this period. The political battle between Pritam Singh and the state in-charge has been going on for a long time. Since Yashpal Arya became the Leader of the Opposition, there is a mutual conflict between Pritam Singh and Devendra Yadav. In such a situation, the disappearance of Pritam Singh from India Jodo Yatra has again become a topic of discussion in the political corridors.
Politics also heated up regarding Congress’s India Jodo Yatra
Politics has also heated up regarding Congress’s India Jodo Yatra. The BJP questioned the significance of the Bharat Jodo Yatra being run by the Congress and said that the yatra has now become limited to cursing the government and making allegations. Party’s state media in-charge Manveer Singh Chouhan said that as the situation is visible, it seems that Congress is in trouble. By creating an atmosphere of positive and cordiality, Congress is claiming India Jodo Yatra, but as soon as the journey starts, it seems to be returning to its old pattern. In this way, she is resorting to counter-accusations to save public disharmony after factionalism in the party and senior party leaders cutting her off from the yatra.
