Guwahati: Veteran Congress leader and MP Jairam Ramesh came down heavily on Assam chief minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Friday saying that the latter’s effort to dismantle the Congress party and its Bharat Jodo Yatra campaign would be futile.

Ramesh, who was in the city, announced that the party would conduct an Assam version of the Bharat Jodo Yatra from November 1 next.

He said, “No matter how much Sarma tries to destabilize Congress and influence its MLAs, Congress will not stop. We don’t care if any MLA leaves us like Sarma who has been a Congress person in most of his political career. He should not preach us but concentrate to work for welfare of Assam.”

Citing Sarma’s previous comment in which he mocked Congress leader Rahul Gadhi to conduct Bharat Jodo Yatra in Pakistan and Bangladesh, Ramesh said, “Assam chief minister said that India is united and doesn’t need to be united anymore but it’s a fact that the country has been divided during BJP regime. Now, the country is witnessing tremendous economic inequality, social polarization and Centralization of power creating a massive division amongst various sections of the society.”

“Here people are divided over their finance as BJP party is favouring only a handful of their business partners like Adani and Ambani creating massive division in the society. In today’s India, people have been divided over their religion, culture and even food habits. Moreover, with total Centralization of power, the rights of the states have been snatched away by the Prime Minister’s office (PMO),” he added.

The national leader informed that the Assam version of Bharat Jodo Yatra will be carried out by hundreds of Congress leaders including many national leaders from Dhubri to Sadiya district.

Ramesh also hinted that there might be another phase of Bharat Jodo Yatra next year from Gujrat to Arunachal Pradesh.

In the ongoing Bharat Jodo Yatra, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi has been leading the rally on foot which started from Kanyakumari and will end in Kashmir.
