Must read

Aizawl, Oct 16: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Monday arrived in Mizoram’s Aizawl for a two-day visit to the election-bound state. He will participate in a march, address rallies, and hold interactions and meetings. Before reaching Aizawl, Gandhi flew from Delhi to the Tripura capital Agartala on a special flight and took a helicopter to Aizawl.


#Rahul Gandhi urged to the people of Mizoram to vote for Congress party. “If there is one thing I would like to leave you with, it is that we will defend your culture, religion, and tradition; they are our most valuable assets,” he said.

# Manipur is just a symptom of the problem. You can see the same problem in a smaller form in many different parts of the country. There’s oppression being carried out on the people of India. I view it as an attack on the idea of India. What’s happened in Manipur is also an attack on the idea of India. The Bharat Jodo Yatra was about protecting every single religion, culture, language and tradition of this country,” Raul Gandhi said.

# “While Congress is developing states and protecting farmers, labourers & MSMEs, the BJP is busy attacking them. GST is designed to harm MSMEs and weaken India’s farmers. We all know what happened during demonetisation, a completely ridiculous idea conceived by the Prime Minister of our country. The economy still hasn’t fully recovered. If you want to understand PM Modi’s strategy for developing India’s economy, it can be summed up in one word: 𝗔𝗱𝗮𝗻𝗶. Everything is designed to benefit one businessman,” Congress leader said.

#He said, “The idea of ‘Bharat Jodo’ won India, promoting mutual respect, tolerance, learning from others’ ideas, languages, and religions, and embracing love as a unifying force. However, this is the idea that the BJP is currently challenging as they target different communities, religions, languages, and cultures, promoting violence, arrogance, and a lack of understanding. This stance is entirely contrary to the idea of India that we hold dear—one that values respect for all and the protection of everybody.”

# Rahul Gandhi said “The idea of Manipur has been destroyed by the BJP. Manipur is no longer a state. It has been divided. People have been murdered, women have been molested and babies have been killed, but the Prime Minister doesn’t find it important to visit the state. The fact that the leader of our union has not even been to Manipur is something to be ashamed of! Nobody in the national media talks about the pain and misery of the people of Manipur. The PM and the GoI are highly interested in what is happening in Israel but not interested at all in what is going on in Manipur.”

# Rahul Gandhi says that he was only 16 years old when he came to Mizoram with his father in 1986.

“The people of Mizoram are gentle, kind and affectionate. People with a strong sense of community. People who respect each other and also people with different ideas. It is something to be very proud of! You have a spirit of altruism.  These are powerful values in the 21st century,” he said.

# He said, “Some months ago, I went to Manipur. The idea of Manipur has been destroyed by the BJP. It is no longer a state, but two states. People have been murdered, women have been molested and babies have been killed but the PM doesn’t find it important to travel there…”

# Rahul Gandhi said that it is an honour for him to come to Mizoram and meet so many of you while walking through the streets of Aizawl as he addresses public gathering.

# He leads Congress’ Padyatra from Chanmari to Raj Bhawan in Mizoram.

Rahul Gandhi’s visit comes days after the announcement of assembly polls on November 7. Congress,may also announce candidates list on Monday. Congress lost power to Mizo National Front (MNF) in 2018.
