Against the backdrop of persistent unrest in Manipur, the Congress party, spearheaded by Rahul Gandhi, faces mounting uncertainties over the smooth execution of their scheduled “Bharat Nyay Yatra.”
Chief Minister N Biren Singh’s recent assertion that Rahul’s visit will not make any difference in Manipur, coupled with his subtle blame on the Congress for the current turmoil, adds complexity to the party’s upcoming journey.
During a press conference at his secretariat in Imphal on Saturday, CM Biren stated, “Rahul Gandhi’s visit will not have any difference in Manipur. Let him come, but people will not support him, because whatever today is because of them.”
This comment was made in response to a query about the Congress’s yatra scheduled to commence on January 14.
INC president Mallikarjun Kharge is set to flag off the yatra, aiming to reach Mumbai by March 20.
It is worth noting that in the past Rahul Gandhi had already encountered a police roadblock at Bishnupur during his visit on June 30, which compelled him to resort to a chopper to reach Churachandpur from Imphal.
As unrest still grips Manipur, there is uncertainty on whether the Congress party led by Rahul Gandhi will freely proceed with their “Bharat Nyay Yatra” in Manipur.
