As part of Haath Se Haath Jodo campaign, PGV to lead all women marches in state capitals
New Delhi: Before the end of the ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ led by former Congress President Rahul Gandhi, the party is preparing to see a tectonic shift with General Secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra taking over. Priyanka Gandhi will lead women’s marches in all the state capitals under the ‘Haath Se Hath Jodo’ campaign. This campaign started from Republic Day. ‘Bharat Jodo Yatra’ is ending on January 30 with flag hoisting in Srinagar.
As a follow-up, the Congress has made a blueprint for a three-tier campaign, joining hands across the country. In this entire two-month campaign, the party has set a target of taking Rahul Gandhi’s message and the failures of the central government to every household.
According to a senior party leader, there are elections in the three northeastern states of Tripura, Meghalaya and Nagaland. All the big leaders including Rahul Gandhi and party president Mallikarjun Kharge will campaign. Elections are to be held in Karnataka immediately after this. In such a situation, the entire focus of the party will be on the election campaign. After this a new program will be created.
The party says that under the Hath Se Hath Jodo campaign, Congress President Mallikarjun Kharge, party general secretary KC Venugopal and chief ministers of Congress-ruled states will participate. Under this campaign, the party has set a target of reaching all the booths.
Along with this, conferences at the district level and rallies will also be held in the capitals. A Congress leader said that it is not yet decided whether Rahul Gandhi will participate in the rallies or not, but it is clear that Priyanka Gandhi will hold women’s marches in almost every state and will also participate in rallies. The march of Haryana, Punjab and Chandigarh can be taken out simultaneously as Chandigarh is the capital of both the states.
Bharat Jodo Yatra led by Rahul Gandhi is currently in Jammu and Kashmir. The journey that started from Kanyakumari has covered a long distance of three and a half thousand kilometers in 130 days. The yatra will end with flag hoisting in Srinagar. The party has invited over two dozen like-minded parties for the closing ceremony.
