[Watch] Congress Claims Huge Support To ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ In Odisha; Party To Bounce Back In 2024 Polls

Bhadrak: As the Odisha leg of ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ completed its seventh day, the party on Tuesday said huge support received along the way indicate that the people of the state will teach a lesson to both BJD and BJP in 2024 polls for their ‘failure’ in all spheres.

Soon after the yatra reached Bhadrak, Odisha Pradesh Congress Committee (OPCC) President Sarat Pattanayak told reporters that the growing support for the programme will be definitely reflected in the state Assembly and Lok Sabha elections in 2024.

Hitting out at the BJP-led Central government and Naveen Patnaik-led BJD rule in Odisha, Pattanayak alleged that both have failed miserably to fulfill the promises made to the people at the time of election.

Alleging that corruption has become all pervasive in the state, the PCC chief claimed that the people of Odisha will teach a lesson to both BJD and BJP in the next elections for their failure on all fronts. Congress is all set to bounce back in Odisha and give a tough fight to BJD and BJP in the next election, he said.

The Odisha leg of the Yatra has been undertaken as part of the party’s national campaign launched by Rahul Gandhi, said Pattanayak.

The party is drawing the attention of the people to various problems ailing the country since the BJP under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi came to power at the Centre and mobilise public opinion, he said, adding that Congress is raising issues of price rise, growing unemployment, inflation, law and order and intolerance prevailing in the country during the last 8-year rule of BJP.

The Congress will also campaign against the misrule of BJD under the leadership of  Naveen in the state for the last 22 years, he said. Rampant corruption, unemployment, poverty and misuse of official machinery by the ruling party are being highlighted during the padyatra.

The 100-day yatra, kicked off from the Indira Gandhi Park in Bhubaneswar on October 31, has so far 100 kms. Apart from MLAs, senior leaders and workers of different party wings, unemployed youths, students, farmers and labourers are also participating  in the yatra. During the ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’, the Congress leaders will visit 25 districts in the state covering 2250 km in 100 days, he said.
