We will create public awareness on issues related to inflation, unemployment, farmers, increasing gap between rich and poor, and caste census. Rahul ji will talk to various sections of the society, organizations and discuss solutions to their problems.”

This yatra is not only a platform to convey one’s views to the public but also to listen to the voices of the public and their problems, he added.

Kharge, who is also the Leader of Opposition in Rajya Sabha while referring to the recent Winter Session of Parliament further said, “When we tried to raise issues related to the public, the government did not allow us to speak. This is the first time in the history of the country, when 146 MPs (from Opposition) were suspended. Therefore, through this yatra we will go to the people to express our views.”

Kharge also accused the ruling dispensation of misusing the Central probe agencies like-CBI and ED to intimidate the Opposition.

“Openly in the country, the BJP is misusing ED, CBI, IT department and small agencies against Opposition leaders. If any person (from the Opposition) against whom there is any case, if they join BJP then becomes clean. (Amit) Shah has a very big dry clean factory,” he said.

INDIA alliance is there, when negotiation will be held in each state, then the exact number will come out.”
