I will stay in Odisha for three days and listen to people’s grievances, said Congress leader Rahul Gandhi at a meeting in Odisha’s Biramitrapur on Tuesday after his Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra entered Odisha on Tuesday. The Yatra entered Odisha at Biramitrapur in Sundargarh district from Jharkhand.
The state’s top Congress leaders including OPCC chief Sarat Pattanayak and Suresh Routray gave Rahul Gandhi a rousing welcome at Biramitrapur.
Thousands of people turned up at the meeting place to hear Gandhi. While addressing the gathering, he said his yatra’s main objective was to unite India.
“The objective of the yatra is to unite India. I have started this yatra protesting against the central government’s five types of injustice meted out to poor people of the country. They include unemployment, rising prices of essential commodities, privatisation, and closing down of public sector units,” he said.
He also added that he would be in Odisha for three days and during this period he would listen to people’s grievances.
