Rahul Gandhi’s Yatra Faces Roadblocks as Assam Government Denies Permission

In a dramatic turn of events, tension has enveloped the city limits of Guwahati as approximately 5,000 Congress workers attempt to enter the city to continue the Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra led by Rahul Gandhi’s Yatra Stopped By Cops. The Himanta Biswa Sarma government in Assam has. However. Denied permission for the Yatra to proceed through the arterial roads of Guwahati. The situation escalated as a sizable contingent of state police stood firm to prevent the Congress rally from making its way onto the city roads.

The state administration, citing it as a working day in Guwahati. Rationalized its decision by expressing concerns about potential traffic snarls if the Yatra were allowed to move through key city roads. Instead, they directed the Congress rally to take the national highway route as it continues its journey towards lower Assam. Congress workers were instruct to follow National Highway 27. Which acts as a ring road around the city.

Rahul Gandhi’s Response:

Speaking at the Guwahati city limits. Rahul Gandhi address the crowd, stating. “This is the same route Bajrang Dal walk. Nadda ji’s rally was also taken on the same place. There was a barricade, we threw the barricade, but we will not break the law. Don’t think we are weak; it’s the power of Congress workers.”

Gandhi expressed concerns about the alleged suppression of the people of Assam. Highlighting an incident where his planned student interaction in Meghalaya was canceled. He claimed that authorities were instructed not to allow students to meet him. But despite the obstacles. Students still managed to meet him outside the planned venue.

“My message is that Congress workers aren’t afraid of BJP-RSS; we’ll defeat them in Assam. I know the officers are being told to do their duty, but there should be justice. We are not here to fight you; we love you. We are here to fight the most corrupt CM Himanta Biswa Sarma of Assam,” he declared.

The Congress workers participating in the march accused the state administration of denying entry into the city on frivolous grounds. This adds fuel to the ongoing spat between the Congress and the BJP government in Assam. The Congress alleges that the Himanta Biswa Sarma government is deliberately creating hurdles in the yatra led by Rahul Gandhi, claiming relentless attacks on their convoys, properties, and leaders by the Chief Minister’s alleged goons.
