Rahul Gandhi had a 45 min in-depth interaction with around 30 ex-servicemen today: Jairam Ramesh

Jairam Ramesh – MP, Gen Sec., Congress:

Today, it was Jai Jawan on the 105th afternoon of Bharat Jodo Yatra.

Rahul Gandhi had a 45 min in-depth interaction with around 30 ex-servicemen, who ranged from Lt. Generals to Junior Commission Officers.

4 issues came up for discussion:

1. Agnipath Scheme
2. Threats from China
3. Implementation of One Rank One Pension (OROP)
4. Need for a separate Ahir regiment in the Indian Army to recognise the significant contribution of the community

All the ex-servicemen were against the Agnipath scheme.

They wanted the govt to be more forthcoming about the border situation with China & acknowledged that while OROP has benefited officers at higher levels, it has not been beneficial for JCOs who leave the army earlier.

The ex-servicemen also wanted a formal and regular system of interaction with the Congress leadership on issues of national security.

We are grateful to Karnataka High Court for staying the baseless FIR against Rahul Gandhi, Supriya Shrinate & myself: Jairam Ramesh

Jairam Ramesh – MP, Gen Sec., Congress:

Great news on the occasion of 100 Days Of Yatra.

We are grateful to Karnataka High Court for staying the baseless FIR against Rahul Gandhi, Supriya Shrinate & myself on the song copyright issue.

No matter what opposition, our resolve remains strong, and Bharat Jodo Yatra marches on!

We don’t have to stay in the past! … : Rahul Gandhi

We don’t have to stay in the past! We have to understand the present and shape the future of the country.

Local leaders campaigning among their own people can swing elections: Shashi Tharoor

Shashi Tharoor – MP, Congress leader:

It’s good to see the widespread relief & congratulations to Congress for the Himachal victory.

It shows that anti-incumbency is real & can be built upon in 2024.

That local leaders campaigning among their own people can swing elections.

And that Congress IS the valid alternative.

Rahul Gandhi clearly stated in an interaction with OBC organisations that Caste Census must be done at the earliest: Jairam Ramesh

Jairam Ramesh – MP, Gen Sec., Congress:

On 86th day of Bharat Jodo Yatra Rahul Gandhi had 2 highly engaging interactions near Agar.

In the 1st, elected panchayat & nagarpalika representatives highlighted how their constitutional powers had been diminished & subverted by the MP state govt.

Rahul Gandhi explained how Bharat Jodo Yatra is meant to raise the issue of centralisation of power in many states.

In the 2nd, with OBC organisations, he clearly stated that Caste Census must be done at the earliest & agreed with demands made for further empowerment of OBCs.

It is truly pathetic that several TV channels did debates today on Assam CM’s obnoxious & totally unacceptable comments on Rahul Gandhi’s beard: Jairam Ramesh

Jairam Ramesh – MP, Gen Sec., Congress:

It is truly pathetic that several TV channels did debates today on Assam CM’s obnoxious & totally unacceptable comments on Rahul Gandhi’s beard.

This trivialises the Bharat Jodo Yatra.

These channels must do some serious self-introspection on what they have reduced themselves to.

The Bharat Jodo Yatra will go through 7 districts of MP over the next 11 days: Jairam Ramesh

Jairam Ramesh – MP, Gen Sec., Congress:

Today is the 77th day of Bharat Jodo Yatra as it resumes from near Burhanpur in southwestern MP.

Burhanpur has a long history & became an important place during Mughal rule especially during Shah Jahan’s reign.

The Yatra will go through 7 districts of MP over the next 11 days.

One-sixth of Burhanpur district’s cultivated area is covered with bananas and it’s also one of the centres of the powerloom industry.

Rahul Gandhi will be interacting with banana growers and powerloom workers today afternoon.

The Insolvency Board’s statement hides more than it reveals: P Chidambaram

P Chidambaram – Former Union Finance Minister:

The Insolvency Board’s statement hides more than it reveals

Brushing aside the jargon and verbiage, what it means is that in 542 resolutions, against a total debt of Rs 7.91 lakh crore, the creditors recovered only Rs 1.80 lakh crore

The “haircut” or dents written off was Rs 6.12 lakh crore

That is Rs 6,12,000 crore was written off

Day 70 of Bharat Jodo Yatra is in Washim district the whole day: Jairam Ramesh

Jairam Ramesh – MP, Gen. Sec., Congress:

Day 70 of Bharat Jodo Yatra is in Washim district the whole day.

This is the constituency represented by Vasantrao Naik, longest serving CM of Maharashtra from 1963 to 1975, & the first tribal CM of any state, right after first Dalit CM Damodaram Sanjeevaiah of Andhra Pradesh

In the morning, the Yatris walked 14 kms.

Delegations of farmers from Amravati & environmentalists from Chandrapur in Vidarbha walked with Rahul Gandhi among many others.

In the afternoon, he is meeting civil society leaders & representatives from all over Maharashtra.

600 copies of Nehru’s iconic, The Discovery of India, will be distributed to Yatris today: Jairam Ramesh

Jairam Ramesh – MP, Gen Se., Congress:

Today is 68th day of Bharat Jodo Yatra & also 133rd birth anniversary of Nehru.

We are in Hingoli district & coincidentally a fine book on him in Marathi has just come out in addition to one in English & Hindi.

(Mo)Distorians will continue to distort, defame and denigrate but Nehru continues to inspire & his relevance has only increased after 2014.

600 copies of Nehru’s iconic, The Discovery of India, will be distributed to Yatris today.

It was brought by a volunteer who drove all the way from Delhi for 23 hours straight at a very short notice.
