Impact of Bharat Jodo Yatra Also Visible On RSS, Says Jairam Ramesh

Ujjain: Bharat Jodo Yatra of former Congress President Rahul Gandhi started from Jhalra village of Ujjain district on the tenth day in Madhya Pradesh on Friday, which entered Agar Malwa district in the forenoon.

The padyatra led by Gandhi started from Jhalra village in Ujjain district around 6 am. Apart from 120 regular pilgrims, State Congress President Kamal Nath, former Chief Minister and coordinator of the Yatra Digvijaya Singh, former State Congress President Arun Yadav, State Congress office bearers, hundreds of senior leaders and thousands of workers are also included in the yatra.

The padyatra took a break after reaching today's first stop at Tanodia village around 10 am. After this, the march resumed in the afternoon and will reach Agar Cantonment Chowk in Agar Malwa district by evening. Friday's night stay will be at Kasi Bardia. 

The yatra will remain in Agar Malwa district on Saturday and Sunday as well and will enter Rajasthan from this district on December 4.

Bharat Jodo Yatra had entered Burhanpur district of Madhya Pradesh from Maharashtra border on 23 November. Since then, this yatra is moving towards Agar Malwa district via Khandwa, Khargone, Indore and Ujjain districts.

Issues like Uniform Civil Code are meant to polarize, says Jairam

Senior Congress leader Jairam Ramesh said that issues like Uniform Civil Code are raised at the time of elections to encourage polarisation.

Ramesh was discussing with reporters at Tanodia in Agar-Malwa district of Madhya Pradesh during 'Bharat Jodo Yatra'. During this, he claimed that in 2018 the Law Commission while giving its report to the Central Government had said that the Uniform Civil Code is not necessary. Ramesh alleged that the report was suppressed at that time.

In this sequence, he said that such issues are raised at the time of elections to encourage polarisation.

Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan said in a programme on Thursday that he is in favor of Uniform Civil Code and a committee has been constituted for this.

Impact of Yatra also visible on RSS

In the context of Bharat Jodo Yatra, Ramesh said that the impact of this Yatra is also visible on Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh chief Mohan Bhagwat.

He claimed that many workers of the Sangh also came in this yatra. Both supporters and critics of Prime Minister Narendra Modi are joining the yatra and Gandhi is welcoming them all.

Ramesh said that today for the first time many ex-servicemen also participated in this yatra.
