Congress Hold Mass Protest Against BJP Government Over Price Rise

On Sunday, the Congress will stage a massive show of force in Delhi’s Ramlila Maidan to start an all-out assault on the BJP government over price increases, unemployment, and the GST increase on vital products.

Several party heavyweights, including Rahul Gandhi, the former president of the Congress, will speak at the “Mehngai par halla bol” event.

Along with other regions of the nation, party members from Delhi, Haryana, and Uttar Pradesh will participate.

The gathering precedes the opposition party’s 3,500-kilometer “Bharat Jodo Yatra,” which will begin on September 7 and go from Kanyakumari to Kashmir.

During this trek, Rahul Gandhi will raise awareness of problems like the cost of food and unemployment while fostering interfaith unity.

The Congress party’s largest-ever mass-contact campaign, “Bharat Jodo Yatra,” will see the party’s leaders connect with voters at the local level.

Sonia Gandhi, the president of the Congress, and Priyanka Gandhi Vadra, the party’s general secretary, are now receiving medical treatment for the former; they will not attend the festivities.

With his mother, Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi is now traveling overseas. He will return on Saturday and participate in both significant ceremonies.

Congress has been criticizing the administration for the increase in prices and the unemployment rate, claiming that these are problems facing the average person and should be brought up in all venues.

In addition to raising the Goods and Services Tax (GST) on necessities, the opposition party wants the government to make an effort to provide people a break from the challenges of rising prices, inflation, and unemployment.

At the Sainik farms in Jammu on Sunday, former Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad will give his first speech in front of the public since leaving the party.

Azad, who criticized the Congress leadership in his letter of resignation, would intensify his assault on Sunday.

However, the Congress has referred to the former chief minister of Jammu and Kashmir’s public remarks critical of its leadership as “diversionary methods” carried out under the direction of the governing Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP).
