Rahul Gandhi Addresses Mizoram During “Bharat Jodo Yatra,” Questions PM’s Focus on Israel Over Manipur

AIZAWL, Mizoram – On 16th October, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi arrived in Aizawl, Mizoram, as part of his three-day “Bharat Jodo Yatra.” During his visit, he addressed a public gathering where he didn’t mince his words, taking aim at Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

Rahul Gandhi began his address by stating, “The Prime Minister is more interested in Israel than Manipur.” This statement underscored his concerns about the state of Manipur, which he believes has been neglected by the central government. He expressed dismay that the PM appeared to focus on international matters while ignoring the pressing issues in Manipur.

In his speech, Rahul Gandhi raised several critical points, emphasizing the need for a clear vision for the state of Mizoram. He outlined Congress’s plan for the region, which includes initiatives such as a ₹2,500 monthly Old Age Pension, LPG cylinders priced at ₹750, and the Tang Puihna Economic Development Initiative. He underscored the party’s vision for the betterment of all Indians, distinguishing it from the BJP.

Furthermore, Rahul Gandhi took the opportunity to address the political landscape in Mizoram. He expressed concern about the influence of the BJP and RSS in the state through parties like the Zoram People’s Movement (ZPM) and Mizo National Front (MNF). Rahul emphasized that Congress would never be a tool for the BJP’s entry into the state, citing ideological differences.

The Congress leader then turned his attention to the neighboring state of Manipur, highlighting the challenges it faces. He criticized the BJP for the state’s deteriorating condition, which he claimed had been reduced to “two states” and marred by violence, including murders, molestation of women, and harm to children. Rahul Gandhi expressed his disappointment that the Prime Minister did not prioritize visiting Manipur despite these grave issues.

Rahul shared personal sentiments about Mizoram, reminiscing about his first visit to the state at the age of 16 in 1986 with his father. He praised the people of Mizoram for their gentle, kind, and affectionate nature.

In conclusion, Rahul Gandhi asserted that Congress would not compromise its ideology by aligning with the BJP. He expressed confidence in defeating the BJP in various states, including Telangana, Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh, Mizoram, Rajasthan, and the upcoming 2024 Lok Sabha elections.

Rahul Gandhi also questioned the roles of prominent BJP leaders’ sons, such as Amit Shah’s son’s involvement in Indian cricket and Rajnath Singh’s son’s activities. He took a swipe at the BJP by pointing out that many of their leaders’ children, including Anurag Thakur, could be considered part of political dynasties.

Rahul’s address in Aizawl stirred discussions on political ideologies, the state’s future, and the upcoming elections, making it a significant moment in the political landscape of Mizoram.
