Meaning Of Bharat Jodo Yatra
Bharat Jodo yatra aims to unite India and aims to build India in the right direction. Everyone is welcome to join this yatra and can participate in this yatra. The motive of Bharat Jodo Yatra is to fight against communalism, unemployment, hatred, inflation, and political centralization.
Many Opposition Parties were invited as the Yatra commenced towards its end
Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge invited many opposition parties such as JD(U), DMK and Trinamool, and some other parties as well. Mr. Kharge said that writing to party presidents had emerged as a “powerful voice” at a time of crisis in the country when public attention was systematically diverted from people’s issues.
The yatra, he said, had a simple and enduring message of harmony and equality. “Today, India faces an economic, social, and political crisis. At this time, when the Opposition’s voice is being suppressed in Parliament and the media, the yatra is connecting directly with lakhs of people,”
“At this event, we will commit ourselves to fighting hatred and violence, spreading the message of truth, compassion, and nonviolence, and defending the Constitutional values of liberty, equality, fraternity, and justice for all,” the Congress leader wrote.
Earlier parties, such as SP and BSP, were also invited when the party started their leg in Uttar Pradesh, but they both declined the offer earlier.
