State Congress general secretary, Hareshwar Goshwami said the main theme of the rally this year was to commemorate the historic Dandi March (1930) that defied the colonial and discriminatory Salt Law which now have relevance with BJP’s anti-farmer farm laws and other black laws.

He said the white sahebs (means the British rulers) have gone and now the black sahebs are back in the guise of BJP to discriminate the people. The Congress had succeeded to expel the white sahebs in the past. Now, time has come again to fight and subdue the black sahebs. That is the reason why Dandi March is observed this year as Kisan Satyagraha-Dandi Yatra, he added.
