On Wednesday, the Manipur government declined the permission for the 66-day Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra proposal to be launched by the congress leader. They refused permission from Congress leader Rahul Gandhi and cited the prevailing condition in the state. The Congress party submitted an application on 2 January and wanted to get permission to launch the Nyay Yatra on 14 January, but they did not get permission. They want to start the Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra from the Imphal east district of Hatta Kangjeibung ground, but they are unable to get permission.
Manipur refuses permission from Congress.
However, with the nation closing silent on the request, a group of Manipur Pradesh Congress Committee (MPCC) led by its president, K Meghachandra Singh, met Chief Minister N Biren Singh on Wednesday.
The Chief Minister has declined permission to launch the rally scheduled for 14 January. The most effective purpose he gave was the law and order state of affairs,” Meghachandra Singh informed journalists after assembly CM Biren Singh.
The country’s Congress president, who termed the government’s response as very unlucky, said, “It is a homicide of democracy. It isn’t only a contravention of people’s rights but also the political rights of India, in particular, the people of Manipur.
Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra
Meghachandra said that the Congress party would organize the rally at a personal venue at Khongjom in Thoubal district. The Yatra is not a political program. It is a program for humans. Therefore, with the aid of the people of Manipur and India, we are able to perform the rally as planned,” stated the MPCC president.
AICC president Mallikarjun Kharghe will flag off the rally, which is about to start in Mumbai on 20 March, after masking 14 states and 85 districts. At the rally, in order to cover 6,713 kilometers, there might be a foot march and bus rides.
Aim behind the Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra
Chodankar urged CM Biren Singh to prioritize Manipur’s peace over party politics, emphasizing the significance of the rally for restoring peace.
When asked about giving permission to Rahul Gandhi’s ‘Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra,’ a foot march of hundreds, Biren Singh said, “Giving permission to Rahul Gandhi’s rally is under consideration. We are taking reviews from numerous safety corporations. After receiving reports from them, we can make a concrete choice.”
Meanwhile, Congress’s widespread secretary, KC Venugopal, has said that the Manipur government has requested the Centre’s approval. Congress national president Mallikarjun Kharge is scheduled to flag off the program in the presence of leader ministers of Congress-ruled states and top leaders of the party.
On Tuesday, the CM said that the selection to provide permission to use the ground in the Imphal East district was under consideration. After receiving reports from diverse safety companies, the authorities could decide on it, Biren had said. AICC general secretary K C Venugopal, along with different country-wide leaders, visited Imphal on Monday to assess the practice work at Hapta Kangjeibung. But on Wednesday, they refused to give permission to Congress to launch their program.
