From Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot’s birthplace of Jodhpur, Shah launched a scathing attack on the Gehlot government, declaring, “We have to eliminate the Gehlot government.”
On Saturday, Amit Shah, the government’s home minister, suggested that Congress leader Rahul Gandhi should first learn about the country’s history before embarking on his current “Bharat Jodo Yatra” (Bharat Jodo Yatra).
Shah made his statement in Jodhpur, Rajasthan “Rahul Baba started the Bharat Jodo Yatra in a foreign jersey and t-shirt. Friends, I’d like to remind him and Congress members of a line from his parliamentary speech: “Bharat is not a country.” Arey Rahul baba, where did you read this? This is the land that has declared the lives of tens of thousands of people, leaving the countryside blood red. Countless sisters committed Jauhar and leaped into the fire in this country out of love for their country and honor. But don’t you observe as if you’re in another country?
According to Shah, Rahul Gandhi should understand Indian history.
Rajasthan will regulate elections in a little more than a year. He unleashed a scathing attack on the Gehlot government while speaking in Gehlot’s hometown of Jodhpur, claiming, “We have to oust the Gehlot government.” He also cheered BJP members to pledge their allegiance to the party’s success.
Gehlot Sahab was born in the city of Jodhpur. I visited his village… Gehlot ji, pay attentive attention. I’ve come to remind you of the false promises you made to Rahul baba. According to the Home Minister, the BJP has asked for your hisab because the five-year tenure is coming to an end.
CM Gehlot hails from Jodhpur, and he had formerly served as a five-time MP from the city. Gehlot now represents the Jodhpur constituency of Sardarpura in the state Assembly.
Shah presided over Saturday’s final session of the party’s OBC Morcha’s national assembly. The Rajasthan government was also admonished by Shah for the Karauli riots and the death of Udaipur tailor Kanhaiya Lal by Muslim zealots.
He coined that after the BJP forms governments in Rajasthan and Chhattisgarh, the only two states in which it has complete power, Congress will be left with nothing.
Shah had visited the Tanot Mata temple in the Jaisalmer region before in the day. He also introduced a plaque at the temple, laying the structure for future tourism development. The minister travelled by helicopter to Tanot on Saturday morning after arriving in Jaisalmer on Friday evening. He presented Vijay Stambh with a floral garland.

Union Home Minister Amit Shah visited the Tanot Mata temple in Rajasthan’s Jaisalmer district on Saturday morning. He also introduced a plaque on the temple grounds and laid the groundwork for tourism growth.
The minister traveled by helicopter to Tanot on Saturday morning after arriving in Jaisalmer on Friday evening. He presented Vijay Stambh with a floral garland.
The BSF is in charge of the famous Tanot Mata temple, which is close to the Pakistan-India border. Jaisalmer is about 120 kilometers away. As part of a Center-funded project to promote border tourism, tourist amenities will be built on the temple grounds.
During the India-Pakistan War in 1965, the Pakistani Army threw several bombs on the temple. However, none of them exploded. These unexploded bombs are on exhibit at the shrine. During the 1971 war, Pakistani tanks were entangled in the sand near the temple, reminding an attack by the Indian Air Force.
Before traveling to the Jaisalmer air force station, Shah met with BSF officers in Tanot.
When he arrives in Jodhpur, the hometown of Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot, he will address the concluding session of the BJP’s OBC Morcha national conference. Following that, Shah will address a gathering of the BJP’s booth-level workers.
The home minister would be hailed triumphantly, according to BJP officials in Jodhpur. According to estimates, he would be accompanied by about 1,500 party members on motorcycles wearing saffron turbans from the airport to the meeting location.
The two-day working committee meeting was officially started on Friday morning by Rajasthan BJP chairman Satish Poonia, BJP national president of the OBC Morcha K Laxman, and Union Labor Minister Bhupender Yadav.
The party is assembling booth-level personnel from around the division for the meeting. At OBC Morcha’s national working committee meeting in Jodhpur, the BJP’s OBC vote bank in the state will be supported ahead of the 2023 Assembly elections.
Gehlot, a member of the OBC, was born and raised in Jodhpur. Before the assembly elections, the BJP also finds to assess its strength in the state’s western region. Jodhpur, Rajasthan’s largest district, consists of six districts: Sirohi, Barmer, Jaisalmer, Jalore, and Marwar, sometimes known widely as Marwar.
The Jodhpur division contains 33 of the 200 Assembly seats, 10 of which are in the Jodhpur district. Currently, the BJP has 14 seats, the Congress has 17, while the Rashtriya Loktantrik Party and Independents each have one.
“The OBC community is massive. That is, according to BJP ideology. This community now boasts 27 ministers, a record for the BJP party. According to Poonia, the Narendra Modi government has also extended constitutional legitimacy to the OBC commission.
Rahul Gandhi and Bharat Jodo Jatra
On Saturday morning, Congressman Rahul Gandhi began the third day of his lengthy countrywide “Bharat Jodo Yatra” from Mulagumoodu in Kanyakumari. The BJP condemned him for meeting the contentious Tamil pastor George Ponnaiah. Gandhi can be heard asking about what kind of God Jesus Christ was. “He is the one God,” Ponnaiah says. On the other hand, Congressman Jairam Ramesh dismissed the charge as “typical BJP mischief.”
On Friday, Gandhi stated that he was doing the Bharat Jodo Yatra to “connect with people” and “repair the damage done by the BJP and RSS.” Gandhi coined that he had already made up his mind and that his choice for the next Congress President would be clear after the elections. “After the election, it will be apparent whether or not I am elected President of the Congress. Please wait up to that time, “He pleaded with the media to assist him.
According to Rahul Gandhi, who is the Congress leader, everyone is responsible for reaching out to opposing parties. He also stated that United States Congress was not an alone party. When asked about the problems in uniting the opposition, especially in persuading politicians like Nitish Kumar and Sharad Pawar to back it, Rahul Gandhi responded: “I am confident that the entire opposition would unite. It involves everyone. Everyone is involved, including the Congress Party. And that debate is now taking place. “Rahul stated this.
What Should You Know About Bharat Jodo Jatra?
The Congress Party’s Rahul Gandhi will launch the “Bharat Jodo Yatra” (United India rally) in Kanyakumari on September 8 after presenting his respects and meditating at the Sriperumbudur monument outside Chennai, the location of his father Rajiv Gandhi’s death in 1991. The BJP claims that the yatra would be the country’s longest rally in a century.
Last week, Congress invited everyone to join the yatra, claiming that it would provide an alternative to “politics of fear, intolerance, and prejudice” and “economics of livelihood destruction, rising unemployment, and widening inequities.”
Website, tagline, and logo for the Bharat Jodo Yatra
The emblem, slogan, guidebook, and website for the yatra were all introduced by Congress. Mile Kadam, Jude Vatan is the countrywide foot march’s catchphrase or motto (walk together, unite the country).
Congressman Digvijaya Singh noted during the launch that anyone interested in joining Rahul Gandhi might do so by registering on the campaign’s website- bharatjodoyatra.
The anthem for the Bharat Jodo Yatra has been released. On Monday, the opposition party presented the yatra’s anthem. Jairam Ramesh, the party’s general assistant in charge of communications, spoke during the inaugural press conference at the AICC headquarters in New Delhi.
The Congress said during the meeting that their “Bharat Jodo Yatra,” which runs from Kashmir to Kanyakumari, is not a “Mann Ki Baat” and that its aim is to ensure that people’s concerns and seeks to reach Delhi.
Senior party officials and spokespersons emphasized the importance of the Bharat Jodo Yatra’s launch on September 7 in Kanyakumari during news conferences conducted on Monday in 28 different locations.
Tamil Nadu has commenced the Bharat Jodo Yatra.
Before the unveiling, Rahul Gandhi will attend a prayer session at Rajiv Gandhi’s mausoleum in Sriperumbudur and an event at Kanyakumari with M K Stalin of Tamil Nadu, Ashok Gehlot of Rajasthan, and Bhupesh Baghel of Chhattisgarh. Khadi, the former Congress President, will be presented with a national flag here. Rahul is said to be one of the country’s most promising leaders.
Rahul Gandhi and other Congress officials will walk to the Mahatma Gandhi Mandapam, where the yatra will commence following the event, which will be attended by Stalin.
Despite being officially launched during the rally, the 3,570-kilometer yatra from Kanyakumari to Srinagar will begin at 7 a.m. on September 8, when Rahul Gandhi and several other Congress officials start out on the journey. The “padayatra” will run in two waves from 7 to 10:30 a.m. and 3:30 to 6:30 p.m. The morning session will be smaller, but the evening session will be packed. Ramesh estimates that padyatris walk 22 to 23 kilometers each day on average.
Smaller Bharat Jodo Yatras will run along the side of the main one in Assam, Tripura, Bihar, Odisha, Sikkim, West Bengal, and Nagaland, he claims.
What is the Bharat Jodo Yatra schedule?
The padayatra (foot march) will begin in Kanyakumari and end on September 7 in Jammu. The Yatra will take a halt in Tamil Nadu from September 7 to September 10. The yatra would resume the next day in neighbouring Kerala.
It will cover 511 kilometres in 21 days, according to D K Shivakumar, the party’s state president in Karnataka.
“Our state has a total length of 511 kilometers, with some of it being forested.” AICC will decide on the yatra in certain regions after consulting with the local government and police. He went on to say that the daily mileage would be determined by the weather and the stops made in the domain.
The march will cover 12 states as well as two union territories. Senior party leader Jairam Ramesh said it would be around 3,500 kilometers long and completed in approximately 150 days.
What safeguards are in place?
Security forces visited the Sriperumbudur memorial as part of the drill. According to the origin, inside the Congress party, efforts are being taken to ensure genuine arrangements are made at Sriperumbudur while keeping the party’s statewide yatra in mind.
Prayers, as well as a theme based on the Tricolor, are among the items mentioned to evoke a nationalist attitude and destabilize the BJP party at the Center.
Why did a standstill in Sriperumbudur occur?
A suicide bomber assassinated former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi in Sriperumbudur on May 21, 1991. Rahul Gandhi looks in on his tomb for the first time since it was erected in 2003.
Rahul Gandhi has invited 150 members of civil society to participate. Rahul recently met with representatives from civil society at a summit to discuss the party’s yatra plans.
Around 150 civil society organizations, professions, and unions attended the “Bharat Jodo Yatra Conclave,” including Aruna Roy, Syeda Hameed, Sharad Behar, P V Rajgopal, Bezwada Wilson, Devanoora Mahadeva, GN Devy, and Yogendra Yadav.
Among the main civil society and political figures that attended the event at the Delhi Constitution Club were Yogendra Yadav, Jairam Ramesh, and Digvijaya Singh. Earlier then, Singh gave the civil society delegates a synopsis of the “Bharat Jodo Yatra” and invited everyone who spoke about social issues to participate.
During the conclave, Rahul declared that the yatra is similar to a “Tapasya” for him and that he is ready for the “long war” to unite the country.
