Priyanka Gandhi questions BJP’s 10-year rule and its impact on the youth, policemen, and students | India News

NEW DELHI: Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra raised concerns about the BJP’s decade-long rule, specifically focusing on issues of youth unemployment, farmer protests, and inflation in the country on Sunday.
While addressing the Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra in Aligarh, Uttar Pradesh, Priyanka said. “BJP has been in power for 10 years. Many big events such as the G20 Summit took place, everyone said that the respect of the country is increasing due to such events, even we agree to it, but I want to ask, is the respect of the country not connected with the young, our policemen, and students? There are no jobs for the youth, farmers are still sitting on roads, inflation is a burden for the people of the country,” said Priyanka Gandhi while addressing party MP and her brother Rahul Gandhi’s Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra in UP’s Aligarh.
“During our time in power, the youth had employment opportunities through the Army. However, now the government has introduced Agniveer, which has taken over employment opportunities. Public sector units are being sold and given to Adani. It is important to understand that the common man does not benefit from these actions,” Priyanka Gandhi said. She also pointed out that the price of sugarcane has only increased by 55 rupees in the past eight years.
Priyanka joined the yatra in Aligarh and together with her brother Rahul Gandhi, they embarked on a journey through Jamalpur, Fatehpur Sikri, Amroha, Sambhal, Bulandshahr, Aligarh, Hathras, and Agra.
Rahul, while addressing the Yatra, highlighted the lack of representation of minorities, OBCs, Adivasis, and Dalits in the central budget. He emphasized that 90% of the population only has 7% participation in the budget. In Uttar Pradesh, 62 officers control the budget, but OBCs, who make up 55% of the population, only have a 4% representation, and Dalits have only 6% representation.
Rahul also brought attention to the lack of diversity in the ownership of India’s top 200 companies, stating that not a single owner belongs to the community that constitutes 90% of the country.
The Yatra was joined by Lok Dal workers in Jamalpur, Aligarh, and a large number of Samajwadi Party workers who will be joining the Yatra along the way. Samajwadi Party chief Akhilesh Yadav will also be participating in the ‘Bharat Jodo Nyay Yatra’ and will have a joint public address with Rahul Gandhi in Agra, following the seat deal with the Congress Party.
