Congress general secretary Jairam Ramesh said the biggest challenge before the country is that it is facing an ideology that believes in polarization, economic inequalities and political authoritarianism.

“The prime minister shows golden dreams of ‘Amrit kaal’ but what is the reality of the last 10 years ‘anyay kaal’.

No mention of ‘anyay kaal’ is made while big boasts of ‘amrit kaal’ are projected,” Ramesh said addressing a press conference here along with former Manipur chief minister Okram Ibobi Singh, state party chief Keisham Meghachandra Singh and Congress Working Committee member Gaikhangam.

“The yatra is being taken out keeping in mind political, economic and social injustices committed in the last 10 years,” Ramesh said.

“This is a yatra by a political party. It is an ideological yatra and not an electoral one,” Ramesh stressed.

The Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra will pass through 100 Lok Sabha constituencies in 15 states and the party believes it will prove to be as “transformative” as Rahul Gandhi’s earlier cross-country march.

The Congress has said that it is taking out the Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra as the government did not give it a chance to raise people’s issues in Parliament and the initiative is aimed at re-establishing the principles of justice, liberty, equality and fraternity enshrined in the Constitution.

The yatra will be flagged off from a private ground in Manipur’s Thoubal district, instead of Imphal, the party’s initial choice.
