“Pakistan Zindabad” slogans were being raised during Rahul Gandhi led Bharat Jodo Yatra, claimed Madhya Pradesh CM Shivraj Singh Chouhan on November 25. He also said that he has ordered a probe into the incident.

Earlier that day, BJP leaders alleged that partakers in the Yatra shouted ‘Pakistan Zindabad’ in Khargone, Madhya Pradesh. A controversy flared up after BJP State President VD Sharma and other party leaders shared a video on social media claiming that ‘Pakistan Zindabad’ slogans were raised during the rally.

Calling it a conspiracy by the BJP against Rahul Gandhi, Congress Party denied the claims. Yatra entered Madhya Pradesh on its 77th day of the Padyatra on November 23.

Covering a total distance of  3,570 km, Congress claimed that Bharat Jodo Yatra is the longest march on foot by any Indian politician in the history of India. It started from Kanyakumari on September 7, and will end in Kashmir next year.

Congress party’s spokesperson Deepika Pushkar Nath has quit just a few days before Bharat Jodo Yatra’s entry in Jammu and Kashmir.

Nath tweeted on January 17 about her decision to resign the Congress. She made it clear that she’s resigning because of former Jammu and Kashmir minister Choudhary Lal Singh joining the Rahul Gandhi-led Yatra. Accusing Lal Singh of backing the accused in 2018 Kathua rape case, Nath said, she cannot share the party platform with him on ideological grounds.

Have a look at the tweet:

Nath, a human rights lawyer based in Jammu, had initially represented Kathua rape victim’s family.

Two-time MP and three-time MLA Lal Singh parted ways with the Congress in 2014, then went on to join BJP. In 2018, he was forced to resign as Forest Minister of J&K. He allegedly expressed support to the accused in the Kathua rape case. He left the BJP in 2019.

Bharat Jodo Yatra will be entering J&K on Friday, January 20.

Congress MP Rahul Gandhi said on January 17 that it is problematic if his estranged cousin BJP MPM Varun Gandhi joins Bharat Jodo Yatra.

Congress MP Rahul Gandhi said on January 17 that it is problematic if his estranged cousin BJP MPM Varun Gandhi joins Bharat Jodo Yatra.

The Gandhi scion is in Punjab’s Hoshiarpur for Yatra. He said at a press conference, “Varun is in the BJP and if he walks here, it might be a problem for him.”

“My ideologies don’t match with his. My family adopted an ideology, and Varun adopted another. I can not go to the RSS office. I will have to be beheaded before that,” Rahul added. 

Watch Rahul Gandhi’s statements at the press conference here:

Speculation about Varun Gandhi joining Bharat Jodo Yatra, and eventually the Congress made rounds. This happened amid Varun taking stands on people-centric issues on twitter and through print media. Many of his opinions are not in line with the BJP’s official position.

This caused embarrassment to the Central Government, and gave opposition an opportunity to sharpen its attack against BJP. Varun and his mother Maneka Gandhi both are MPs from BJP in Uttar Pradesh. Neither are they a part of any important BJP panel, nor they use the party’s name in their Twitter bios.

Rahul Gandhi’s statements might be a hint to Varun to officially quit BJP and be publicly critical about the BJP-RSS ideology. The wink-wink move may not do.

Suspended BJP Spokesperson Nupur Sharma

Suspended BJP spokesperson Nupur Sharma made headlines due to controversial Prophet remark she made during a TV debate last year. Sharma got a gun license by Delhi Police after she requested it, amid threats over the disputable remark.

Those who came out in her support were also threatened. Two killings have been linked to the controversy. A pharmacist, Umesh Kolhe who supported her, was murdered in Amravati in June. Days later, Kanhaiya Lal, a tailor in Udaipur who had backed Sharma on social media was hacked to death.

Sharma complained of receiving threats to her life. Her lawyer told the Supreme Court that she has “an ever-increasing threat to her safety” and that it is “a real and genuine threat.”

The Supreme Court gave out a scathing remark on Sharma in its July order: “The way she has ignited emotions across the country. This lady is single-handedly responsible for what is happening in the country.”
