Congress to take out Bharat Jodo Yatra in Karnataka from Sept.30

August 29, 2022

Bengaluru: Ahead of the 2024 Lok Sabha polls, the Congress will take out a ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ in the State from Sept.30 as part of the party’s nationwide march for unifying the people of the country.

Announcing this at a press meet here on Sunday, KPCC President D.K. Shivakumar said that the Yatra will traverse across Karnataka for 21 days from Sept.30. Pointing out that the Yatra will be launched from Gundlupet in Chamarajangar district on Sept.30, Shivakumar said that the Yatra will culminate at Raichur.

Noting that the Padayatra will be a trend-setter for the party cadres in other States, the KPCC President said that the objective of the Yatra is to spread a message on unity, peace and harmony across the country.

Stating that the Yatra will cover 25 kms every day in the State, he said that the people from all districts will be allowed to take part in it. Leader of the Opposition in the Legislative Council B.K. Hariprasad has been entrusted with the responsibility of managing the Padayatra, he added.

Opposition Leader and former Chief Minister Siddharamaiah, who also spoke, stressed on the need for unifying the country at a time when  Democracy has come under threat during the current BJP Governments at the State and the Centre. Alleging that politics of polarisation is going on in the State, he asserted that the Congress is working for building an equal society.

The Congress has named Co-ordinators for ensuring the success of the rally, according to which N.R. MLA Tanveer Sait, former MLAs Vasu and M.K. Somashekar have been appointed for Mysuru city, MLAs H.P. Manjunath and Dr. Yathindra Siddharmaiah for the District, former Ministers Cheluvarayaswamy and P.M. Narendraswamy  and MLC Madhu G. Madegowda for Mandya district and KPCC Working President R. Dhruvanarayan for Chamarajanagar district.

MLA and former Minister Priyank Kharge released ‘Bharat Jodo’ Logo on the occasion.

    Their leaders , the Italian bar maid Sonia Gandhi and her son fat Rahul Gandhi are in London, for Sonia Gandhi’s medical treatment. They are staying in their large house in a very desirable part of London.
    Kuruba Siddramiaiah and Gowda Shivakumar should know that the BJP have cornered all Lingayat votes in the state, thanks the Karnataka integration , when the Lingayat-infested arid regions of former Maharashra and Andhra Pradesh regions became part of Karnataka. Without a Lingayat leader of Congress in the state, Kuruba Siddaramaiah will not get Lingayat votes. The Lingayat Seets all of them -Siddaganga and Suttur Mutt for example, influence their Lingayat communities to vote for the BJP which has caterpillar moustached Lingayat Bommai is the CM and his mentor Lingayat Yedi, the RSS Cheddi is still active.
    The BJP is struggling to get Gowda votes. Her comes the Deve Goada and his son Kumaraswamy-the Gowda duo, who will map up Gowda votes in Mandya and Ramangara, thus depriving Congress the majority.
    Hence, in 2024, one can expect BJP to get the majority, and form the next government.
    Hence, to get Lingayat votes, the Congress in Karnataka should have a Lingayat leader-kicking out this Kuruba Siddaramaiah, and keeping Gowda Shiba Kumar as the deputy leader.
    The BJP at the centre knows that caterpillar moustached Lingayat Bommai , is a useless CM with his toad face and demeanour. Hence, Amit Shah wants him to be replaced with Shobha Karandlaje, a Gowda, and a sweetheart of Yedi, the old man! That is to garner Gowda votes too!!
    Casteism-infested Karnataka politics. This is independent India , 75 years after independence!
    Surely, Mahatma Gandhi, would have liked this!!

  2. Howdy, Modi! says:

    Karnataka Congress misses the Lingayat leaders like Veerendra Patil and B D Jatti, from the arid lands of North Karnataka, which were joined to form Karnataka in the integration process, just to get more Lingayat MLAs.
    Congress since then has been unable to get a Lingayat leader like the above. Hence, the Lingayat Seers are forced to support the BJP. Kicking this Kuruba Siddu and the Gowda Shivakumar out, and bringing in ab band of Lingayat potential MLAS would help Congress to regain the votes of the Lingayat communities across Karnataka.
    It appears that the Congress is hellbent in electing Gehlot, the chela of Sonia Gandhi to be the Congress president, rather than Sashi Tharoor, who with all his drawbacks would be a better leader to revive the party.
    The Muslims of Mysore and Karnataka, like Javeed Nayeem, have to wait for years more to get their beloved Congress in power in the state.
