Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Wednesday targeted the BJP, saying while one ideology gives benefits to a select few, another is the voice of the people, farmers and labourers. As the Bharat Jodo Yatra led by him crossed over into Haryana from Rajasthan this morning, Gandhi also said that inflation and unemployment are the biggest issues affecting the country.
Addressing a gathering in the district, where a large number of people had turned up braving the morning chill, Gandhi said the fight between two ideologies in this country was not a new one and has been going on for thousands of years. On BJP leaders questioning the need to undertake the the Kanyakumari to Kashmir yatra, Gandhi said he was “opening a shop of love in the market of hate” through the Bharat Jodo Yatra.
“When these people go out to spread hatred in this country, people of our ideology go out to spread love and affection,” he said.
