Imphal: Amid the persistent unrest in Manipur, the Congress party’s Bharat Nyay Yatra, to be spearheaded by Rahul Gandhi on January 14 next year, faces mounting uncertainties.
Chief minister N. Biren’s asserted that Rahul’s visit will not make any difference in Manipur’s, coupled with his subtle blame on the Congress for the current turmoil. It adds complexity to the party’s upcoming journey.
During a press conference at his secretariat, here on Saturday, Biren said, “Rahul’s visit in Manipur will not have any difference. Let him come. People will not support him, because whatever today is because of Congress.”
INC president Mallikarjun Kharge is set to flag off the yatra at Imphal, aiming to reach Mumbai by March 20.
Rahul Gandhi in the past encountered a police roadblock at Bishnupur during his visit on June 30, which compelled him to resort to a chopper to reach Churachandpur from Imphal.
There is uncertainty on whether the Congress party would freely proceed with their “Bharat Nyay Yatra” from crisis ridden Manipur.
